So sorry to hear about the passing on Dave. I worked with him on the Commerce Court construction project many years ago. Recently, if there was any information I needed about CIBC I would always rely on Dave. He was such a wealth of information. RIP.

My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. David Dwyer. I met David as a neighbour almost 28 years ago, and we bonded over our love of dogs; especially Jack Russell Terriers. David was an active contributor to our condominium community, having resided here for over 50 years. He had integrity, was highly intelligent, and was a dedicated family man,
I miss him already.

In sympathy,
Paula Campbell
