Born in Toronto May 2, 1931 David is survived by his wife Nancy, sister Ann, daughters Elizabeth (Harold), Lynn (Ib), Susan (Greg), son Terry (Liz), 6 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.

David spent many years travelling through BC while working for BC Tel, finally settling in Oak Bay in 1966. David established deep roots in the community while volunteering with the many sporting or musical activities of his children or flying and teaching ground school out of the Victoria Flying Club. At the parish of St Philip Anglican Church Oak Bay David was a devoted volunteer and gave his service in many different capacities.

When his mobility was challenged, David stayed involved and found a passion in Ham Radio with the New Horizons Amateur Radio Club. He enjoyed the “net” as well as the social functions the club offered.

Due to the current health situation a private family celebration of life will be held. In lieu of flowers, at the request of Nancy, please support St Philip Anglican Church in Oak Bay.

There are so many memories... really a lifetime so to speak.

As a youngster I would go flying with my dad whenever possible. Renting a plane is kinda expensive.
During my little league baseball career Dad would do his best to get to all of my games, play catch in the back yard and help me with my pitching desires.
On my rise to being a National class swimmer he was at all my home meets and was volunteering on the deck as an official whether it was reffing, stroke and turn, or whatever was needed.
He was there to support me in everything I did even into my adult life.
I am already missing him terribly

I remember when you would take me up flying with you and you would fly over our house and tilt the plane to the left and right so it was like waving to mom who was standing out on the porch watching us. It was so much fun.
