    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - John Burditt Lake, 81, died Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2010, at Scottsdale Osborne Hospital, from advanced complications of Post-Polio Syndrome.
    He was born Jan. 29, 1929, in Harvard. He was one of four children of George Burditt Lake and Vera Hannah Hofmeister Lake. Upon graduating from Illinois College, he married Marilyn Ystebo and soon thereafter took over the third-generation family lumber and hardware business known as Lake Lumber in Harvard.
    As a member of Rotary, he received "Man of the Year" and other accolades for his many contributions to the community. He also received an award of appreciation from the Harvard Rescue Squad as performing an honorable service to the unit and community. Finally tiring of the Northern Illinois harsh winters and desiring a climate more favorable to his health and that of Marilyn, in 1970 he sold his business and moved his young family to Phoenix, Ariz. Wishing to again own a small business, he bought and operated a gift shop in the old Thomas Mall named Nutville USA.
    In the mid-1970s he returned to the lumber business by becoming a salesman at a large lumber wholesaler in the valley called Malco. It was the business he knew best and enjoyed, and as a result, received top salesman honors for many years until retiring 25 years ago.
    A gourmet cook, voracious reader of history, and collector of coins and stamps, he very much enjoyed his retirement.
    His greatest passion, however, was his thorough and prolific research of genealogy. Having spent much of his adult life documenting the lineage of the Lake family, he spent many Saturdays pouring through the Mormon Library in Mesa tracing the family through more than 200 years of rich history. His work resulted in a spectacular collection of volumes illustrating the lives and images of the family of which he was extraordinarily proud.
    He is survived by his daughter, Kathleen S. Cochran of Phoenix; his son, Michael Lake of Warwick, N.Y.; and two grandchildren, Cooper and Parker.
    Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 13, at Shepherd of the Hills Church, 5524 E. Lafayette Boulevard, Phoenix, Ariz.
