As per Dave’s wishes, no funeral service will  be held. His family and friends will celebrate his life at a later date.

    I worked with Dave at IPSCO. I remember him as a man who was always had a smile on his face. In the work place he was eager to learn and always did his best. We soon became more than colleagues… we were friends. I recall a beard growing contest between the two of us long before “Movember ” beards became popular. And yes, Dave won the beard growing contest. Louise & I offer our prayers and sympathy to Iris and the family.

    I have known your family for over 30 years and you have all been a big part of my life, and I cherish you as my best friend…. there has never been anyone I have been as close too as you !! You have been there for my good times and of course the bad. My 4 beautiful children are very blessed to have you as their godmother, and I know if anything were to happen to myself or Scott, you would be an excellent role model to our children. I am very sad to hear about your Dad and I know how hard it is with losing a parent, as I lost my wonderful Mother in 2007, there will not be a day that goes by Shell that you will not think of the special times you spent together. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your Mom at this difficult time, please remember if you ever need anything at all, do not hesitate to call on me. Your one of the best people I know and we love you too the moon and back !!! Take care and God bless you both.
