DAVID GREGORY SMITH 1969 - 2013 It is with profound sorrow that our family announces the death of our cherished David Gregory Smith. Those close to him were aware that he was battling several debilitating illnesses but we remained hopeful for his recovery. Sadly, he passed away 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 deeply missed by his partner and wife of nine years, Adrienne Alexandra Munro, and their loving son, six-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 Patterson. David will forever be sorely missed in our lives. He will also be greatly missed by his many valued friends, colleagues and acquaintances at Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) in Toronto, the Department of National Defence and Canadian Forces communities, as well as by colleagues at the Royal Military College and Queen's University. David's ashes were laid to rest next to his father at the Rideau Memorial Gardens in Montreal on Friday, April 12, 2013. Family, friends, and colleagues are warmly invited to join us at a Memorial Service for David at the George Taylor Denison Armoury, Officer's Mess, 1 Yukon Lane, Toronto, Ontario, M3K 0A1 (first light west of Allan Rd. and Sheppard Ave. intersection), on Saturday, May 11th, at 1:00 p.m., to celebrate David's life and his lasting spirit. Following the service, a reception will take place until 4:00 p.m. and refreshments will be served. We hope that you can attend.
