We Remember


After a life well-lived, Dave has embarked upon his next adventure.

The family wishes to announce Dave’s peaceful passing in Kelowna General Hospital on December 4, 2021, just short of his 81st birthday.

Dave will be greatly missed by his wife, children, grandchildren, his many nieces and nephews, and close friends. Gregarious, and frequently sporting a grin, and a twinkle in his eye, he was always game for a good laugh or a chat.

Dave will be fondly remembered by his colleagues at the CBC as a talented and experienced cinematographer. He traveled the four corners of the world, occasionally risking life and limb, to document many significant social and political events for “The National” and “The Journal“.

In retirement, Dave discovered his love of boats – the bigger the better. Upon earning his captain’s license he spent many delighted hours on Okanagan Lake. He loved photographing animals, helping friends, and working with things that got his hands dirty.

The family wishes to express its gratitude to Dr. Robert Williams for providing excellent and compassionate care to Dave during his illness. According to Dave’s wishes, there will be no service. The family will gather in the spring for a Celebration of Life.
