Dave’s journey ended on Tuesday, October 26, 2004. He passed away peacefully at the Beverly Centre and his journey was eased by the care and compassion shown him by the caregivers there.
Dave was born on June 11, 1931 in Winnipeg. Always interested in military life he was active in Cadets and in 1951 received his commission in the Canadian Army Regular Force.
