Obituary

Alan Lemberger, a pillar of the community, sports fanatic and all-around great guy left this earth on Wednesday, September 18, 2019. He died of natural causes at age 75.
Al was born in Newark, NJ to Kurt and Lisa (Knoll) Lemberger. He received both a bachelor’s and master’s in engineering from Rutgers University as well an MBA from Marist College. He served in Vietnam as a captain in the US Army and worked for IBM for 38 years. In 1967, he married Barbara Mann. They moved to the Hudson Valley in 1968 where they raised their three children.
Al had a passion for pitching in. He spent 28 years volunteering as the Arlington High School sports photographer, capturing thousands of images each season earning him entry into both the Dutchess County Sports Hall of Fame and the Arlington High School Athletic Hall of Fame. Al’s enthusiasm for serving the community didn’t stop there; he spent years as an active member of Lion’s Club, served as president of the Harding Club, as well as president of the Arlington Booster Club. When he wasn’t busy volunteering, he could be found cheering on the Jets and Yankees and planning his annual guys golf trip which he organized for over 40 years.
As a first generation American, Al was extremely patriotic and was on a mission to visit all 50 states. He made it to 48! He revered American sports cars, was an avid chocolate lover, a Billy Joel enthusiast and a collector of sports memorabilia. Al was the definition of a family man. No matter the event, you could count on him to be there with poem and camera in hand. He was well known for his great sense of humor, his smiling eyes and his fun-loving spirit.
Al was preceded in death by his father, Kurt, and his mother, Lisa. He is survived and will be greatly missed by his wife Barbara, his children and their spouses, Steve and Elisa Lemberger, Mike and Sharon Lemberger, and Rebecca and Bart Coleman, his grandchildren Ryan, Abby, Zach, Jamie, Drew, Lindsay, Gus and Dove, his beloved in-laws, his nieces and nephews, and extended family and friends.

Al, a true Gentleman in every sense of the word. Friendly, Kind, Polite, Sincere, Funny these words don't even begin to describe you as a person and a man. A devoted and loving father husband and grandfather who cherished his family, love them sincerely, and who were his greatest joy. A tremendous sports fan and so important supporter of Arlington high school sports, miles of hope, and so many other important causes. I will cherish and remember our friendship always. R.I.P. Carl.

Al was always warm, friendly, engaging -- and very giving of himself. I am thankful for his long term friendship and support over many, many years, He was a jewel to this community. As a final note -- our family was one of the hundreds ( probably thousands ) of families that have wonderful photographic memories thanks to Al's generosity.

My deepest heartfelt sympathy goes out to everyone who knew Al. I had the pleasure of working with him at IBM on an important project in the late 1990's and which also allowed us to travel together to visit other IBM sites. He was a great manager and colleague, down to earth, but also driven to get the job done well and on time. We shared a bit about our faith together and I loved receiving his holiday letters keeping us all up to date on the Lemberger happenings. I will miss his letters, but our faith tells us we will meet again. Until then, may the peace and love of God be with you all and uphold you in this time of loss and grief.

My deepest sympathies and condolences to the family and friends of Alan who was taken far too soon. Although we have
not had contact for many years, I know my brother Joel did spend some time with Alan and Barbara in Palm Springs not too
long ago. I still have fond memories of when Alan & Family would come stay with us in Montreal. One particular visit when
my parents, Molly & Bert, and myself along with Alan & Barbara all went to Expo / Man & his World, will always be for me a
fond memory.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember Mr. Lemberger as a staple at every volleyball game and track meet during my career at AHS. Even if we hadn’t had a stellar season, we could always count on Mr. Lemberger to give us a slide show with great action shots we could feel proud of. My dad ran into him recently and he still remembered me, 23 years later! He was an amazing role model for our community and will be remembered by many athletes.
