He will be missed by all who knew him. Special thank you to the doctors, nurses, and staff of the Jubilee Hospital for their care and compassion. A Celebration of Dave’s Life will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at the he Royal Canadian Legion, 9775 Chemainus Road, Chemainus, BC.
