The family would like to extend a very special thank you to Dr. J. McCarthy, Dr. Hong, the staff of H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Center and the staff of the Health Sciences Centre.

Dave was a hard working and caring person who always offered up help and support to anyone who needed it. He was a loving husband and father, who put his family first and foremost in his heart and mind.
Dave was a proud member of Freemasonry, to which he held several positions over many years. He was also very involved in the scouting movement, in the past, and spent countless hours of volunteer work.
