David Leslie King beloved husband of Linda of Calgary, passed away peacefully at the Chinook Hospice on Friday, January 12, 2007 at the age of 45 years after a year long battle with kidney cancer.
David was born in Germany on June 14, 1961 and moved to Canada in 1963 where he spent his early years in Eastern Canada, moving to Alberta following grade three. He had an enthusiasm that inspired all those who met him, living a life of passions, especially enjoying the great outdoors (fishing, camping, golfing, skiing, and triathlons), music (playing guitar), and his friends and beautiful family. David held a variety of jobs, working as a hardware store manager in Wainwright, an insurance and car salesman in Red Deer, AB, before joining the Grande Prairie city as a property assessor. His last years were spent in Calgary, excelling as a land agent. David’s playful laugh and soulful manner will be sorely missed by many. We Love You!!!
David is survived by his one and only love and wife of twenty-three years Linda; his children, Shaun, Jaden and Danai; parents Ronald and Marilyn King of Wainwright; brothers, Michael of Wainwright and Stephen of Calgary; as well as numerous other in-laws, nieces, nephews and friends. He will always be our angel looking out for us, believing in us and giving us strength.
