      ***********************************************************************************************

      CEDAR LAKE -- The heart attack a 58-year-old Munster man suffered when he was driving a small power boat may have triggered his fall into the water and possibly led to his death, a Lake County coroner's spokesman said Monday.

      Thomas J. Lasbury's cause of death has been ruled as natural -- an apparent heart attack he likely suffered prior to his falling into Cedar Lake on Saturday night, Lake County Chief Deputy Coroner Jeff Wells said.

      Wells said Lasbury, who was found by a fellow boater floating in the middle of the lake, never went completely under the surface.

      He was pulled onto a pontoon boat, where CPR was initiated. He was taken to St. Anthony Medical Center in Crown Point, where he later died, Cedar Lake Police Chief Roger Patz said.

      Police were alerted to the incident at 7:16 p.m. Saturday when they received a report that an unoccupied boat came ashore with the motor running and lights on.

      Cedar Lake Emergency Medical Services and the Cedar Lake Fire Department were dispatched to the area and a search of the lake began.

      Officers learned the boat had been rented by Lasbury for a three- to four-hour period. Boat rental personnel told police they were concerned when the boat had not been returned in the allotted time period and had gone out to look for him.

      Patz said the death marks the first on Cedar Lake in approximately seven years.

      Sarah Lasbury, Lasbury's wife of nearly 36 years, said her husband had a history of heart-related health problems, including a couple of previous mild heart attacks.

      She said he also suffered from myotonia congenita, a congenital muscular disorder that affected her husband's movement if he remained stationery for too long.

      Lasbury said her husband, a State Farm insurance agent owner with an office in Dyer, had worked on Saturday and then traveled to Cedar Lake to try a new portable navigational system he had recently purchased.

      "He wanted to play with it. He's not a boater by trade," she said.

      She said her husband, a graduate of Calumet College of St. Joseph and Hammond High School, had followed in his dad's footsteps when it came to running an insurance business.

      "His dad, Edwin Lasbury, was a State Farm agent in Hammond," she said.

      She said she and her husband have one daughter, Nora Hay, of Chicago.

      He was a member of the Ridge United Methodist Church in Munster and a member of a number of organizations including the Munster Lions, Garfield Masonic Lodge No. 569 and the Calumet Toastmasters.

      "He was a good husband and dad. He loved his community, and he enjoyed a lot of different avenues. He liked a lot of different things including history and art. If you knew him, you knew him for his laugh. He was very caring and generous," she said.

      A memorial service for Lasbury will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday at the Ridge United Methodist Church, 8607 Columbia Ave., Munster. Memorial visitation will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Anthony & Dziadowicz Funeral Home, 9445 Calumet Ave., Munster.
