February 11, 1935 - August 21, 2023

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of David Muir at the age of 88 years old.

Leaving to mourn are his children, Debbie (Chester) Wionzek, son Darryl (Joan); grandsons, Christopher, Scott (Abi), Wionzek, Justin and Devin Muir; and newest edition, great-grandson Jaxton Wioznek.

Predeceased by his loving wife Donna, David was diagnosed with prostate cancer and COPD over five years ago.

He enjoyed his time moving into the Metropolitan Kiwanis Courts keeping staff and residents entertained with his humour and wit. The last year had been a struggle and he finally went to sleep for the last time.

The family would like to thank the MKC for making his time there so enjoyable. To the staff at Riverview Health Centre, for making his last days comfortable, we thank you.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba.

Condolences may be sent to

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • So Darryl and I (in Ness Junior High) walk down to Kmart on Portage Ave plotting a killer scheme. We’re going to score us some “Wonder Wine”. It comes in a package, you add water and maybe something else and weeks later, presto, we’ll be drinking 7% wine in Amarynth Park before we know it. We can almost taste the wine. Get back to Darryl’s. Hi Mr Muir. Darryl bends over to pet his dog, Snoopy. The WW packages roll out of his jacket, landing on Dave’s feet. Dave bends down, picks it up. ”What the hell is this?” Busted. Wonder Wine winery was closed before it ever opened. Dave used to walk for miles every day- to Unicity and back, stopping for coffee with several friend groups along the way. They wrote an article about him and his walks in the paper, Free Press, I believe. Holy garage sale Batman. Dave bought a lot of s*** over the years. Remember those 2 lions squatting like sentinels at 22? He set up a basketball net in the backyard for us. That’s why Darryl shoots hoop so well. He coached us hockey. He could do this crazy shot with one hand, using his opposite leg as a fulcrum. I never could shoot the puck as hard with 2 arms as he did with one. Darryl and Debbie, forgive the unsolicited and impromptu eulogy. It’s just that your dad meant a lot to me and all of us friends / neighbours. We grieve with you and we smile fondly with you and your family. God bless you David Muir. And God bless you too Darryl, Debbie and your families. - Posted by: Carl Torbiak (Friend) on: Aug 26, 2023

  • My sincere sympathy to the family. I met Dave in 1966 at the waterworks, he was one of our teachers at the High Pressure Plant. He was a good friend, used to go snowmobiling with him and out for lunches and hot dog day. Will miss him. Ian Adams - Posted by: Ian Adams (Friend) on: Aug 26, 2023

  • Mr. Muir [I have and will always think of him this way] is the 1st neighbour in my life that I remember. He and Mrs. Muir were always smiling and wondering what was going on in my life. We always had good times on Amarynth Cres. Hugs to the family. - Posted by: Avril [Sallows] Kousof (old neighbour) on: Aug 26, 2023

  • My sincere condolences to the family. I worked with Dave for The City of Winnipeg in the Water & Waste Department. Dave was working on the tapping truck, good old No. 7, when I first met him and our paths crossed many times over the years. Off work I enjoyed going snowmobiling with him, I'd go to his place and we would go riding right out his back door and take his kids out at times. After retirement several of us would meet for lunches. Rest in peace David. - Posted by: Eddy Hupalo (Friend/ Co-worker) on: Aug 26, 2023
