OBITUARIO

David Francis West

15 septiembre , 19427 enero , 2021

It's with a sad heart, that we have to announce the passing of our dad, David West.

He passed peacefully, in Courtenay on January 7, 2021. Dave spent the last 3 years living in the Comox Valley, bombing around on his red scooter which he greatly enjoyed! He loved anything to do with the BC Lions and was proud to have coached with the Sea Lions football organization. He always seemed to have a terrible joke on hand to lighten the mood, and really enjoyed greeting people upon arrival to the Walmart store. Dave and Dot lived In Port Alberni for 45 years and loved that community, their Beaver Creek friends, and were active members of the Port Alberni Rock and Gem club.

Dave will be greatly missed by his children; Darrin (Karen and the dogs), Liana and her children (Nate, Zack, Noah and Elly), and Paulene Rice. He will also be missed by many Port Alberni friends and extended family in Ontario and Texas.

In lieu of flowers, we'd kindly ask that you help support the Ty Watson Hospice in Port Alberni, as they were such a support to our family, when we needed them.

Additionally, we would like to thank the staff at Cumberland Lodge and the Comox Valley hospital who cared so well for Dave.

Rest peacefully Dad.

Father’s Day 2019 with a bearded Darrin.
Once Dave moved to Comox he started to grow his “stache”, and sadly Darrin also decided to. 🤣

Thank you so much for the memories that people are posting here. Darrin and I really enjoy learning what “early” Dad/Dave was like. Here are some favourite photos... Karen West (Dave’s daughter-in-law).

Dave and Dot were both members of the Beaver Creek Volunteer Fire Department for many years. We spent a lot of time together at the various functions the department put on. One of my fondest memories is Dave as Santa Claus at our annual Christmas party. RIP Dave, give Dot a hug from us!

I remember you arriving at our home in Port Alberni with your family. A wife, a young son and a six week old daughter. We had a long lasting friendship and went through a few tragedies like the fire that destroyed your home. You and Dot never stopped to lick your wounds, you just charged ahead and rebuilt another home. We had many campfires in the back yard, some rock hounding and a few road trips together. Both of you will be in our hearts and thoughts for many years.

Uncle Dave, I did not know you very well, but I am glad I got to meet you, even if it was over the phone and video. I know my mom (Betty) really enjoyed talking to you.
I Love you all the way from Texas. ❤️
