Hi Pat and family,

Just wanted to send our sincere and deepest sympathy in the passing of Dave.

My fondest memory is of Dave driving his car everyday to the ECU entrance, coming back towards Materiel Management, parking the car oposite my office window and sleeping in his car during his lunch break. Sometimes we’d walk past and he’d be fast asleep. He always woke up in time to go back to work.

Dave was always friendly, a little shy, but such a nice man. I know you will miss him terribly.

Sincerely Larry and Teena

We were sorry to hear about Dave’s passing. He was a wonderful person to play bridge with. He never followed the rules, played by the seat of his pants and usually came out on top while always making the game enjoyable. Our deepest sympathy to you Pat and your family.

Pat and family-David was our good friend during his school days. His sense of humour still brings smiles to our faces. Hard to believe that we now have reached the age where we must say good-byes.
God bless

So sorry to hear about David passing. In our early teenage years we were very good friends. His humor, his kindness ,his enjoyment of life made him a popular friend. Pat, Eva and I have an understanding of what you and David have gone through because Eva has cancer. Multiple myloma a cancer that can respond to treatment but not cured. Pat, when you are home NB stop for a visit. Wishing you and your family condolence.

Was so sad to read about Dave’s passing. You two were a prime example of young love; it’s refreshing to know that it will last forever. Love; I think of you often.

Relation: School friend

Dear Pat and family, I just heard about David’s passing and wanted to send my sympathy to you all. I was a year older than David but spent all our school years together in Edam and there always was an open door at his family home. Gordie, Mackie and David had deep family and community roots in Edam and will always be remembered.
