We Remember


Dave was born in Kelowna, March 27, 1952, to Mary and Bob. Never straying too far from “home”, Dave passed away Dec 30, 2023, in peaceful Beaverdell.

Dave’s family will be missing him, his partner, Nia; his children, Cheryl (Darryl), Dawn, and Terry (Tina); Nia’s children, Dave (Vanessa), and Mike ( Allison); 17 grandchildren; and 2 great-grandsons; his brother Jack (Zonya); nieces and nephews; and of course his very important fur babies. Many special family members predeceased Dave and they are now re-united with him.

Dave was always a lover of the outdoors. Camping, fishing, hunting, a 4×4 up Spion Kop, a bonfire, sledding, quadding, or even a crazy carpet ride down a steep hill followed by a hot tub “to get the kinks out” were all things Dave enjoyed. These things couldn’t be done alone, because, what fun would that be? So….Dave always had accomplices. He called the accomplices his friends. Dave leaves many friends with wonderful memories of time spent with him.

Dave was a red seal carpenter and spent most of his working years at Sawchuck Developments and School District 23. Dave was proud to be a volunteer fireman for Kelowna Fire Dept (Glenmore Hall), where he made many lasting friendships.

He will be missed so very much by those who loved him. May he rest in peace now.
