After graduating from Harvey High School, David enlisted in
the military and served with the Canadian Armed Forces for several
years. Following this, he completed his welding training with the New
Brunswick Community College and entered his career with
Carson’s Trucking in St. Stephen, NB.
David had a great love of animals and nature from the day he
was born. He cared for many of natures allies from his cats and dogs
to saving two eagles, from his osprey he taught to fly so it could
join its family again, to his pet squirrels Ashley and Nipper (only to
name a few) to his pine trees which he called his babies. The Saint
John River was part of David’s soul, winter and summer. As an avid
motorcycle rider, he would enjoy many long hours on his bike. He loved
to read his books, especially on airplanes and boats. One of his
favourite pastimes when he was a boy was throwing crabapples at his
brother Peter, or anyone else that got in the way. While waiting for
the school bus, he was knows to throw rocks at the guardrail with
incredible accuracy. He was a prankster and loved to play jokes and
tease his brothers and sisters.
David had a special bond with his mother, family and friends.
They take some comfort in knowing he is now with his 18 year old cat,
Maggie, whom he loved dearly.
There will be no visitation. The family welcomes everyone to
a graveside service being held on Wednesday, July 31, 2019 at 11:30 am
in Kingsclear Baptist Cemetery. Rev. Peter Valji will officiate. For
those who wish, donations in David’s memory can be made to Ca-R-ma
