June 20, 1955 – August 22, 2010
David “Davis” Martin Charlebois, beloved husband of Kate Charlebois of Calgary, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, August 22, 2010 at the age of 55 years.
He bicycled the world and spent his time wandering in the mountains and badlands, watching the birds and the stars. He was appreciated by all who came into contact with him for his gentleness and generosity of spirit.
Davis was helped on his last journey home by his wife Kate, their friend Bryan Parker and many more of his loving friends. The family would like to take this opportunity to thank the Palliative Care teams who were so caring during Davis’ last six months. Theirs is a true gift and they were invaluable.
He is survived by his mother Rosemary Charlebois; his brother Michael Charlebois; his sister Marylou Beaubien (Andre) and their children, Mathieu and Elise, and sister Karen Fojt (Sander) and their children, Andrea and Kevin. Davis also leaves many relatives of the Voytechek and Charlebois families as well as Kate’s sisters and brothers.
