David SMITH

SMITH, David Gregory
1969 - 2013
It is with the most profound sorrow that our family announces the death of our lovely David Gregory Smith, PhD. Those close to him were aware that he was battling debilitating illness but we remained hopeful for his recovery. Sadly, he passed away unexpectedly on Monday, April 1, 2013 in Toronto, Ontario at the young age of 43 years. A Psychologist and scientist, David had a keen and always inquisitive intellect that was matched only by a strong passion for his work and collaborations with his many friends and colleagues. Above all however, David was a loving and generous spirit who rejoiced in his moments with others. He touched and enriched the lives of all who knew him, as they touched his. David will be very deeply missed by his partner and wife of 9 years, Adrienne Alexandra Munro, their loving and most cherished son, 6 year-old Logan Munro Smith, who was his father's greatest pride and source of joy. Beloved and dearest son of Louise Guay Smith and the late Robert William Smith, caring brother to Steven Michael Smith and proud uncle of Sydney and Dylan Smith. Loving brother-in-law to Isabel Fearon and Kyla Munro. Dear nephew to Marcel Guay, Marielle Guay (deceased) and Richard Sirois, and Eileen and Reginald Paterson. David will forever be sorely missed in our lives. He will also be greatly missed by his many cherished friends and valued colleagues and acquaintances at Defense Research and Development Canada (DRDC), the Department of National Defense and Canadian Forces communities, as well as by colleagues at the Royal Military College and Queen's University community in Kingston. A memorial service will take place on Friday, April 12, 2013 at 11 a.m. at Rideau Funeral Home, 4275 Sources Blvd., Dollard-des- Ormeaux, H9B 2A6, 514-685-3344. Following the service, David's ashes will be laid to rest next to his father at Rideau Memorial Gardens Cemetery. A separate memorial service will be held in Toronto at a later date. Toronto area friends, family, and colleagues will be notified as soon as details are known. As expressions of sympathy, donations will be welcomed to the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health (CAMH). Please sign the book of condolences at www.rideaumemorial.com
