Dave was a great guy to work with and a good friend. I,m sorry Nancy and I cannot attend

From: Fred And Nancy Powell
Relation: Worked for the same company.

We are deeply saddened by hearing of Dave’s death. He was such a great work-mate and friend. We did some work together ‘overseas’ in Victoria once. Dave and Phyllis lived in the same apt. block in Burnaby as I did for a while too. Dave and Phyllis came to our wedding in Kamloops in 1967.
Unfortunately, we will miss being at his memorial because Nancy just returned home from being in hospital with A-typical Pneumonia.
Love & big hugs Phyl,
Fred & Nancy Powell.
