With loving memories, we said good-bye to David Bird who passed away on February 7, 2021, in Grace Hospital at the age of 81 years, despite the generous and loving care of the staff.
He is survived by wife Gillian Bird; children, Lawrence (Maria), Owen (Karin), and Anna (Stephen); sister Valerie (Mike); grandchildren, Akio, Maya, Sasha, Morgan and River, as well as cousins, nieces, nephews, close friends and neighbours.
David Bird led a full life, loved by his family and friends, as a dedicated doctor, world traveller, avid supporter of the arts, seeker of knowledge and admirer of natural wonders.
For anyone wishing to do something in David's memory, please consider a donation to the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, one of his favourite local arts organizations.
A celebration of his life will take place when restrictions allow and the weather has improved. In the meantime, David's family kindly requests that friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by visiting his tribute page at A photo-biography, as well as memories and stories published by those who knew him, are available there.
