tribute daveDave was born in Bristol, England on June 5th, 1938 and came to Canada in 1964 with his wife Lesley. After short stays in Saskatoon, Vancouver and Squamish, they made their home on the Sunshine Coast where they raised their family. As a young man, Dave was an avid athlete; he swam and cycled competitively in England. Once in Canada, with a family to care for, he shared his passion for sports by coaching and sponsoring a youth soccer team. In earlier years, he was an active member of Kinsmen, a community volunteer service.

Dave always found time to attend his kids' ball games, chaperone at Cub Camps, and help out at school sports days and other activities. A big kid at heart, Dave designed and built unique Halloween costumes for his kids and hosted a neighbourhood Halloween bonfire/fireworks display for many years.

Although Dave enjoyed many things, his real passion was for electronics. An industrial electrician by trade, Dave was an electrical foreman at the local pulp and paper mill where he worked for over 30 years. His interest in electronics and desire to be his own boss led to the start-up of his own security alarm company.

A true people-person, Dave always found time to spend with family and friends, telling stories, lending a helping hand, or just hanging out. We will all treasure memories of our time with him - his sense of humour, his tall tales, and his fun-loving nature. His presence will truly be missed.
