He will also be cherished forever by his brother Mike (Roma), sisters Theresa (George), Linda and many many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Your dad was so helpful to me when I worked in the health office…I remember when the health building was being renovated – your dad and Cyril were there every day to help make it a welcoming place in the community. Dave’s quiet humor, and gentle manner will be missed. Sending much love to you.

    Dear family of Dave,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Death is an enemy that never gets satisfied.I wish to share comfort from the Bible.
    Jesus well knew the Bible statement:” Time and unforeseen occurrence befall them all”[Ecclesiastes 9:11]. He knew that
    sometimes bad things just happen.
    The wonderful future resurrection hope is the promise found at John 5:28,29.
    Revelation 21:3,4 states that death will be no more. and pain
    will be no more, the former things will have passed away.
    Our Creator, Jehovah God, by means of his son Jesus, is going to undo the tragedies that touch our lives today.At that future time we will be able to welcome back our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death.
    As you read these texts from your Bible, may they be of comfort to you now, and forever.
    Dianne Mullins

He was such a gentle person and so loving of everything. Debbie and I are deeply saddened by your loss . He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him . I will never forget that smile at the back of the class. Debbie and Jerry Boscariol

    its almost been a full year since i’ve seen my uncle.. i always think about the last thing he said to me when him and reg were over here working then had some homemade bread with some tea and stayed to have a conversation for hours. we would laugh, smile, and talk about everything and anything. the last thing he said to me was “ill see you soon jungle” and i never thought that the next time i seen him would be like that… i missed his funeral and i been crying about it everyday and every night but there was nothing i can do at the time. i never thought something can make you so sad that you will get sick. thats what happend to me…… there was too much here for him i dont understand why he left. if i can change this then i would. if there was a way for me to talk to him just one more time i would. i love my uncle with all my heart and i would do anything for him…. i just wish i could understand, wish someone would explain to me why this had to happen…. i just want my uncle back <3
