David William Rowe beloved husband of Tracy Rowe and father of Westley and Ryan Rowe of Calgary, passed away at the Rosedale Hospice on Monday, July 7, 2008 at the age of 54 years.
Dave was born and raised in Calgary and as a true Canadian was a Tim Horton’s addict. He started playing the guitar at an early age and continued playing in various local bands all his life. He most recently was part of the band Wildcard that included many old friends. Dave worked at Shell Canada for over twenty years in the computing department and it was here that he met his wife Tracy – going to great lengths to capture her attention by taking up running. In addition to his music, Dave enjoyed spending time with his family at their cabin at Little Bow. He was a great hockey dad – never resorting to violence.
Dave is also survived by his parents Jack and Nina Rowe; brother and sister-in-law Terry and Peggy Rowe and their children Jennifer and Trevor Rowe; father-in-law Bill Usborne; brother-in-law Scott Usborne; and by all his other friends and family.
