I'm so sorry for your loss. David was by far the most influential and remembered teacher/principal I can remember throughout the 13year span of education. He will be fondly remembered by so many. My sincere condolences to your family.

We are so very sorry for your loss and for the sudden, unexpected passing of David. Wow, what a character he was; he lit up the room and was a joy to speak to - full of charm, wit and a wicked sense of humour. We are truly sorry we didn't get to say goodbye in person due to the circumstances and will truly miss his spark when we see you all. Life is precious, it can be over so quickly, enjoy every moment. Love to you all - Ruth and family - Laura, Pete, Lily and Isla Veasey xoxo

This condolence is from Gunter and Ingrid Koch. My wife and I are very sorry to read of the passing of Dave. I came to Canada in 1954 from Germany and Dave was the first friend I made in Canada. My parents lived in the same house as Dave and so we got to know each other. After I brought my fiance to Canada the next year we chummed around with Dave for a couple years but eventually our friendship became more sporadic. Once in a while we would run in to each other and we stayed friends for all these years. Just not close friends. Still I have special memories of Dave.

Dear Ruth and family (with a special hello to Leona and Steven) - I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of our dear "Mr. Christian." What fond childhood memories I hold (though I still don't know if I was "Heckle" or "Jeckle"). To see him at our Dad's memorial November 2016 meant the world. Rest in Peace, Mr. Christian. Give Dad a big hug for us. Much love xox

I am so glad I had the chance to speak briefly to my cousin David a couple of years ago as I hadn't seen him for many years prior to that...I was remembering a visit with his Mom(our Aunty Barbara) when my sister, Pat and I were teenagers. We managed to bum a cigarette from him and Jack and were then told "if you're old enough to smoke, you have to get your own cigarettes." Our 2 families never lived close so I didn't know anyone well but I'm sorry for the loss and I too really love the quote from Omar Khayyam. My thoughts are with all of you. Janet & Joe

Dear Ruth & Family,
We are sadden to hear of David's passing. Our sincere condolences at this difficult time. I had the privilege of serving with David on the School Board and know first hand his passion and dedication to education in the Saanich district. His contributions as a teacher, administrator and trustee will not be forgotten.

Ruthie and family , you have our heartfelt sympathy for your loss. It was a tragic loss for me too as i've never had a better friend than David.

Ruth and family, we are sorry for your loss. "Grandpa Christian" / David was one of our favourite people and he (and his wonderful sense of humour and outlook on life) are dearly missed. Much love, Lyndsay, Byron, Liam and Lily
