Dave was born in Victoria where he raised his family with the love of his life, Carol, predeceased in 2000. He will be greatly missed by his sons Scott (Tracy), Andrew (Anita); grandchildren Liam and Amelia; sister Annette (Bruce).
Dave spent his working years as a pharmaceutical sales representative, travelling the province between appointments and fishing holes.
Dave was an avid sailor, sharing this passion with his sons and teaching them there were two seven o’clocks every day.
Summers meant Shawnigan Lake and Qualicum beach. The fishing rod was always close at hand.
Dave loved animals, forming special bonds with the family pets. Woodworking became a hobby for Dave after retirement and he perfected making outdoor furniture using recycled wooden pallets.
