My condolences to the family for the loss of such a special guy. I only met you a couple of times but you always had that smile of yours, which others feel good. Please enjoy this next step in your live and whenever you have time, look down on us and perhaps sent us a smile and note

To Dave's family I send my deepest regrets on his passing. He was a very kind, polite, and thoughtful man. He loved his friends and his sqirrels and birds. He would probably get a kick out of the fact that a young man left a whole box of Timbits for the squirrels yesterday. I am going to miss him as a neighbour. Bev I'm here any time you want to chat. Godspeed Dave...

I sailed with Dave "Dancing Bear" Stobie on HMCS OKANAGAN, an Oberon Class submarine, Daily life on a submarine can be quite mind numbing sometimes, so the crew relies on the cooks in particular to help brighten their days with great meals. Dave was a great cook and he had a real knack for entertaining with his quick wit and stories of all kinds. He wa given the nickname Dancing Bear for a whole host of reasons, but the one thing I can say is that you were always left smiling after talking with him. He had a lot of charm and character, and that is what made him such a valuable asset on Subs and Ships. A great shipmate, a great cook, and a great friend. He will be missed. My condolences to the family for the loss of such a special guy.
