ANDERSON, David “Dave”

It is with heavy hearts and immense sadness that we announce the passing of Dave Anderson at the age of 63. Dave passed away surrounded by loved ones after an admirable and courageous nearly five-year battle with cancer.

Dave leaves behind his loving daughters Kylie (Tyler), Lindsey (Spencer), Breanna (Kyle), and Karalee; as well as his adoring grandchildren Lane, Theodore, Miles, Rooney, and Sonny. He is also survived by brothers Ray (Deb) and Doug (Lorraine); and sisters Betty (Bob) and Debbie (Brian). He was predeceased by his parents Lewis and June; and brothers Ron and Tracy.

Dave’s thoughtful, caring nature served him well over a forty-year career as a Funeral Director. Starting in 1980, Dave spent twenty years at Westlock Funeral Home in Alberta, eventually he relocated to Kelowna, BC and became a valued team member of Springfield Funeral Home.

Dave was an accomplished athlete, completing multiple Ironman Triathlons and numerous other competitions as well. He enjoyed cycling with a close group of friends up until this past fall. Dave had a great sense of humour, an even better sense of style, and will be best remembered for his deep love of his daughters and grandchildren.
