BOVA, David Lawrence August 22, 1930 - December 1, 2017 Dave passed away peacefully at the Ottawa Civic Hospital with family by his side. Beloved husband of 62 years to Joyce (nee Keays), loving and caring father of Neil (Maureen Hannusch) and Grant. Son of the late Carrie (Gosse) and Philip Bova. Predeceased by his three brothers, Frank (late Lorna), Bill (late Violet), and Jim (late Frances), and by his niece Donna Bova Lainchbury. Survived by many nieces and nephews and their children. Dave also had a special place in his heart for his extended "family" in Mexico - the Ramires, Vargas and Munoz families, with whom he and Joyce exchanged frequent visits and happy times. He was also a dedicated cottager at Bennett Lake, where with help from his brothers and several good friends (special mention: John Allen and Don Paynter), he built his own cottage over 60 years ago. He instilled a love of the lake in his two sons, who later built their own homes in the area and are still residents there. The family would like to thank Dr. M Edirisinghe for her help and care over many years, and also the nurses and PSWs from LHIN (Carefor and Paramed) who were so helpful with homecare for Dave. Also, the caring staff on D5, Ottawa Civic Hospital. Cremation has taken place, and a Celebration of his Life will be held in the New Year at the Pinecrest Reception Centre, 2500 Baseline Road, Ottawa, on Sunday, January 14, 2018 from 2 to 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the University of Ottawa Heart Institute or a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
