À la mémoire de
David L. Shelley
29 août 1936 –
4 juin 2021
Died peacefully on the evening of June 4th, 2021, at the age of 84. He is predeceased by his wife Sally and his siblings Elaine, Bob, Doris and John. Former husband and friend of Joy. A people-person with a generous smile, Dave was loved by his children, David (Aizada), Lindsay, and Rob (Marie). Step father to Chris (Kim). Proud grandfather to Jared, Matthew, Benjamin, Cameron, Chloe and Ayan.
Dave grew up in Kitchener, Ontario, raised his own family in Oakville, and finally settled in Mississauga.
Dave was well loved and respected by the many loyal employees of his businesses over the years: Motel 27 and Shelley’s Esso Gas and Wash in Etobicoke; The Mohawk Inn, Campbellville; Holiday Inn Express, Stoney Creek; and the Country Inn, Oakville.
He had keen eye for recognizing a “good deal,” little aversion to risk, and a logical, analytical mind to craft ideas, buildings and people into a business.
Passionate about golf, he was the volunteer coordinator of hospitality at the Canadian Open for many years and member of Credit Valley Golf club for over 50 years.
He had a fondness for Teen Ranch, the summer camp influential in the lives of his kids.
His family is also grateful for the help and friendship offered by Oakville Strokers, which helped Dave to navigate his last 17 years as a stroke survivor. A family service will be held Sunday, July 11, 2021.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in his name to TeenRanchMinistries.org or to OakvilleStrokers.ca
