Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • I Just found out about Dave’s passing this morning. My condolences to Dave’s family and friends. Dave and I met thru the food service industry. I was his sales rep at two of his job sites and we also worked together at the fishing lodge and in the cannabis courier business more recently. Like others have mentioned Dave was indeed a kind and caring person. It was always a pleasure dealing with David and enjoyed sharing a pint on occasion with him. You will be sorely missed my friend. RIP buddy! - Posted by: Glenn Rolfe (Friend ) on: Feb 04, 2023

  • David was a kind soul. He was whip smart in High school and I used to joke.."let me guess, you got A+?" Though he downplayed his great academia at the time. As we moved toward Grade 12 and "legal drinking" David had some great parties at his place! Unlike ones were we drank beer and ate chips, his was a culinary spread with real food... not out of a bag of box. As time passes, I lost touch with him after 1st year University, but said hello in passing at events or at some store. Truly sad is his passing. Thinking back, he was one of the most sincere, kind people I have ever met. - Posted by: David Green (friend in Highschool) on: Apr 16, 2022

  • David was a friend for over 30 years. My fondest memory of David was our amazing group vacation at a villa in Acapulco in the early ‘90s. David was a kind and gentle spirit who will be missed by many. See you on the other side, amigo. - Posted by: Maree Grigaitis (Friend ) on: Apr 08, 2022

  • Dave was a fine crib player and a fantastic cook. I will miss playing cards and sharing a bottle with him. He was fond of his family in Saskatoon and friends in Winnipeg. Ever the entertainer, Dave would often have gatherings at his apartment on Garry Street where he would provide a delicious meal and good company. Dave was generous with his time and gregarious nature, may he rest in peace. - Posted by: Geoffrey Brown (Friend) on: Apr 03, 2022
