Condolence from Grant Connolly on July 13th, 2018 10:24 AM

I had the privilege of working with David and through that, getting to know him as a professional and a person. David was a man of exceptional character, integrity, capability and competence. He listened more than he spoke and when he did speak his words were always valuable and insightful, delivered in a calm and measured manner. David lived out a very strong set of values and set an example that constructively challenged and inspired others. I will miss him very much.
I extend my sincere condolences to David’s family and friends.

Condolence from Alfie Jinah on July 13th, 2018 2:11 PM

I worked with David on and off for about 7 years, my most recent interactions with him were at the end of last month. I always got a good vibe from him, he engaged thoughtfully, with empathy, and a genuineness that was refreshing. I am glad our paths crossed.

Dear Wiley family,
We are very saddened by the news of Dave’s passing and wish to express our sincere condolences. My husband and I met him briefly at the sad occasion of Tina’s brother Kenny’s funeral last summer. It has been our blessing to interact with two of his daughters Marilla and Sarah at church. They are beautiful young women who are kind, dependable, smart and articulate, fun and creative and willing to work hard and do their best. Their love of the Lord is very evident through their quiet acts of service and love to those around them. They are a great credit to their parents. Tina, May you and your daughters and other loved ones feel the love of the Lord and His comforting light at this heartbreaking time. We love you.

Doug and Judy Takahashi

Tina, Katelyn and Jacob, Marilla and Sarah,
Our sincerest sympathies, prayers and thoughts are with you all at this most difficult and unexpected time. We were shocked to hear of David’s passing and cannot imagine your grief. David was one of the most loving husbands I have met, I often watched as he opened the car door for Tina and helped her with her coat; small kindnesses that often wain with time. David’s character was reflected in his three daughters, two of which I had the pleasure of knowing well as their Young Women’s leader in the church; he left a legacy of happy and hard working daughters with integrity that is beyond reproach. He was a quiet achiever, a humble and kind man.

I have know David since the early 2000s and never once did I know him to be anything but a gentleman, he was quiet and unassuming but his opinion was always listened to due to his great knowledge.

My wife Danielle and I were shocked to learn of David’s passing and our hearts go out to his family at this time. Personally, as I have read of the condolences of others I think of what a great legacy David has left behind, and what a wonderful adventure life was for him and for those he loved. I have always admired David and respected him for who he was and for what he stood for. I know and love his family well, each one of them a great example to me and all who know them. My heart weeps for each of you knowing how hard this time must be for you. You shared an adventure with one of the most wonderful awesome men there ever was and ever could be, and as time passes you know that that adventure will continue in a different sphere. God bless you all. I love and appreciate each one of you. Words are not sufficient for my feelings at this time.
