It was a pleasure to know Dave and to participate with him in many of his ministries.

It's been a few years since I last saw Dave. He was such a character whom no one could forget. We met in Parents Without Partners and had many a great time together at family gatherings, adult activities and working together on the board of PWP. Dave, I'm sure that you've already met up with Norm and Rowly up there in heaven and are sharing stories of the fun times we all had.
My condolences to David Jr. and Norm, and the rest of your families. A man with a beautiful heart, your dad will be missed.

My Dearest Uncle Dave,
It comforts me to know that you are in Heaven, free from pain, sadness, and illness, rejoicing with your beautiful Mrs. Magoo, my most special Aunt Jean. Although I know you’re in a better place, with your/our loved ones who have passed earlier, with your sight restored, and Jesus, whom you believed in so faithfully, by your side, I am selfishly sad that you aren’t physically here with us anymore. Even though you drove me nuts with your silly ‘jokes’ that made me roll my eyes and cringe, that laugh and smile of yours was infectious. You knew how to make people feel important and loved, and although you couldn’t see well, you definitely made people feel seen. You always remembered the things that were important and significant to each person. I loved how sentimental you were and how big your heart was. You made friends your family, and I know that you made a huge impact on many lives throughout your life. Please don’t worry about Mum, as we’ll take good care of her always. Same with Aunt Marie, Aunt Bz, & Aunt Lorna, who will definitely be missing your presence tons. I know you will help us, as well as your children and their beautiful families, and your other nieces and nephews, by continuing to pray for the best for all of us - we all have a beautiful new angel. You were one of a kind, and will be missed greatly. Please give my Grandparents, my Aunt Jean, my Uncle Bill, Georgia, Nini, Carly, and Julie big hugs for me, and I send you a kiss on the forehead. I will hold you close in my heart, until we meet again.
❤ Your Bubbie, always xo...

It is with a heavy heart that I write this your family. I have so many wonderful memories of working beside your dad for so many years in his kitchen and driving him all over the place while we planned all the events. He will be truly missed and his warm and loving heart will never be forgotten. His wicked sense of humour and laughter was contagious. His words of wisdom and encouragement were always welcomed. He was so proud of all of you and loved you more than words could say.

Although it has been many years since I last saw Dave, I have many great memories of bowling in the church league that he helped start back in the "seventies." He always seemed to be a cheerful, upbeat kind of person. I know my late mom (Betty) often mentioned attending the Chat and Chew. My condolences to his family and maybe they can take some comfort in the words of Jesus who said "because I live, you also will live."
