Our sincere condolences on the loss of your father. I got to know him better this past year and one thing is for sure, his love for his girls was immense. His pride in his first grandson, Keith was amazing to see. I know he will be missed by many. May your memories comfort you in the days ahead.

So sorry to hear this sad news of Dave's passing. Condolences to family and friends also. I have known Dave for a long time, back in the days of back yard parties at lancer Drive maple with family. He would show up in his Dad's old model car that made us all envious. His passion for old cars, old music, great memories, and that silent sparkle in his eyes that kept back many emotions untold. His heart ran deep for only him to understand. Always a great looking guy with a smile on his face always.
Over the past few years we shared music back and forth on facebook, challenging each others knowledge on who sang what, and do you remember when this tune was released. Dave would always be right and would say to me, but you almost had it, good going! Or , can't believe you dug that oldie out!
Our last conversation was a few weeks ago when he called through facebook and was having difficulty trying to face time, got frustrated and I said don't worry Dave I will call you back later as I was cooking and had company. I regret I never got that chance and to ask as I always did...".hows you doing today boy?"
Dave, you will be missed by all who knew you, may you rest peacefully and be free of pain.
"See you soon"
