We regret to announce the death of our beloved husband, father and friend on the evening of June 16 at the age of 76.
Dave was a member of the Silver City Trap Club, Masonic Lodge, Trail Wildlife Association and past member of the Trail Amateur Radio Operators. Dave was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved the wilderness and his trips to the Caribbean and making and drinking his homemade wine. You could always depend on Dave for a colourful story and long telephone conversations.
He is survived by his devoted wife Joan (of 53 years), sons Rick (Mary), Brian (Carol), Chris and grandchildren Charizma, Kienan, Chris, Theo, and Joli and his brother Garry (Elfriede) and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
The family thanks his friends for their support and, in particular, Bud Gruden, Gerald Caron, and Glenn Smecher, for going the extra mile.
We invite you to join us in celebrating Dave’s life at the Silver City Trap Club on Hwy. 22 (in Birchbank) on Friday, June 22 at 12:00 noon. Bill Clark of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.
As an expression of sympathy, donations in David’s name may be made to the Trail Hospice Society at 1500 Columbia Avenue, Suite 7, Trail, BC V1R 1J9 or online at www.trailhospice.org or to the BC Wildlife Association (Trail Branch) at 101-9706 188th Street, Surrey, BC V4N 3M2 or online at www.bcwf.net
