HOLMES, David

February 6, 1976 – November 26, 2011

David Holmes, beloved son of Bob and Leslie Holmes, brother of Rob Holmes, brother-in-law of Margaret Grant, passed away in Calgary on Saturday, November 26. David faced many difficult challenges in his life. He dealt with these challenges with courage and patience, enjoying an active life that included skiing, swimming and music. To his family and friends, David will be remembered as a true gentle man. In addition to his immediate family, David will be missed and remembered by aunts Pat and Carol; uncle Terry; cousins, Jeanette, Roy, Kristen, Alyson, and Stefan; and niece Melanie. David taught us empathy, gave us inspiration, and enriched our lives with his love. While he died too young, we are grateful for the 35 years he was with us.

A Private Memorial Service remembering David’s Life was held earlier in the week. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. David’s family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the staff at the Rockyview and Foothills Hospitals, particularly the staff in the Foothills Intensive Care Unit, Pod C, who cared for David with skill and compassion.
