May 2, 1939 – April 22, 2022
In Loving Memory ~
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of David after a very brief battle with cancer. He passed peacefully at home surrounded by family.
Dave came to Canada from South Africa in 1956, and Christmas Day 1959 met the love of his life Pauline and they married in May of 1962.
Dave was predeceased by his son Kevin.
Survived by his wife Pauline, children Shane (Laura), Barry (Pam), Chris and Karen, twelve grandchildren and ten great grandchildren.
Dave and his family moved to Port Renfrew in the seventies where he worked for BCFP as a heavy duty mechanic/driller blaster. He later relocated his family to Lake Cowichan where he retired.
Dave was a very skilled multimedia artist. Dave was a member in the Kaatza Art Group. He was awarded the “People’s Choice Award” many times in the past nineteen years.
Dave will always be remembered for having a great sense of humour, the never ending love for his family along with the willingness to help others.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BC Cancer foundation.
A celebration of life to be held Saturday May 14, 2022 @ 1pm at the Lake Cowichan Seniors Centre, 55 Coronation Street North, Lake Cowichan V0R 2G0.
