LACY, David Francis
October 23, 1956 - June 23, 2014
The family of David Francis Lacy, son, husband, and father, announce with sadness his peaceful surrender to brain cancer at home on June 23 at the age of 57 years.
David will be lovingly remembered by his wife and best friend, Laurie, and their precious children, Ryan, Sean, David, Brendan and Leanne; by his mother, Helen; and by his brothers and sisters, James, Patricia (Bob), twin Kit (Michael), Donald (Julia), and Margaret (Anthony). David will also be forever remembered by his numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and extended family and dear friends.
Born in Invermere, BC, David grew up in Chemainus, BC, on Vancouver Island, where he graduated high school (Cowichan Secondary). David moved to Edmonton and worked for 29 years at Celanese Inc. until the plant closed, whereupon he worked at Transalta for the past seven years as an outage scheduler. David loved flying gliders in his single days, and willingly gave this up for complete dedication to family life, always highly involved with the activities of the five children, the parish, and the home education community. Many thanks to the palliative home care team; special thanks to Lynn, David's wonderful care aide in his final months.
A Prayer Service will be held on Sunday, June 29, 2014 at 7:00 p.m., at Connelly- McKinley Funeral Home, 10011-114 Street NW, Edmonton.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, June 30, 2014 at 11:00 a.m., at St. Thomas More Catholic Church, 210 Haddow Close, Edmonton, with Fr. Andrew Bogdanowicz celebrating.
Memorial donations in memory of David may be made to a charity of one's choice.
