March 9, 1953 – March 30, 2012
It is with deep sorrow and loss that we announce the passing of David (Dave) Michael Wercholaz beloved husband of Sheila of Calgary, on Friday, March 30, 2012 at the age of 59 years.
Dave was born in Hamilton, Ontario, where he attended Sir Winston Churchill High School. He moved to Calgary in 1977 where he worked in sales; his customers quickly became dear friends and remained so throughout his thirty years in the industry. Dave was a dedicated athlete, strong of body, mind and will. He brought love, laughter and joy to easily forty “world class” buddies whom he cherished as dearly as if they’d been his brothers. He was fun-loving and fiercely loyal to his friends and family and treasured his wife beyond measure. Recently his life was made all the richer with the birth of his first grandson, Slater Carlin Conn.
Dave is survived by his loving wife Sheila, his step-son Carlin (Erin) Conn and his dear grandson Slater as well as his stepdaughter Tracey Conn. He is also survived by his sister Carol, and nephews Jay (Kelly), Hannah and Shaun Whitehorn. He was predeceased by his father Slats Wercholaz and his mother Lavonne Wercholaz.
A Gathering will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Monday, April 9, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. Dave was a colourful character, recalcitrant to the end. Please forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
