DOKA, David Robert
March 5, 1943 - January 11, 2013
David passed away unexpectedly at Surrey Memorial Hospital on Friday Jan. 11. He was born in Regina, Sask., and grew up in Abbotsford, BC. Predeceased by his parents - Molly and Rev. Cal Doka, he is survived by his wife, Margaret; brother Brian (Wendy), sisters Mary Ann (John Rosberg), Margaret (Nick Kooman) and Elizabeth (Robin Savage), aunts, cousins and two generations of nieces and nephews. Also survived by mother-in-law, Grace Murdoch, brothers-in-law Lyall and Laurie (Jean) Murdoch and sister-in-law, Marilyn Smith. After attending St. George's School, Vancouver on an athletic scholarship, he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis with which he coped for fifty years. David was always ready with a joke, a story or a testimony to his faith. His cheerfulness and optimism were an example to all he met. He was associated with Kinsmen Lodge for many years, first as a volunteer and later as a permanent resident. He endeared himself to the staff, management and volunteers and we thank them for their loving care. We also thank Dr. Robert Hepburn for his care and concern. A service of Remembrance will be held at Whalley Presbyterian Church, 13062 - 104th Ave., Surrey on Saturday, January 19th at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Whalley Presbyterian Church.
