Spence, David Osbourne – It is with sadness that the family of David O. Spence announce his passing on November 14, 2012 after a courageous battle with cancer in his 78th year. He loved us and taught us many lessons of life, especially his last: bravery and resilience in the face of a difficult illness. He was a devoted husband to Velma, a loving Dad to children Peter, Mario, Charmaine, David, Mark and Shelly; a Brother, Uncle , and Grandfather; a keeper of many lifelong friends, a magnet for new ones, and a member of the Prince Hall Mason Eureka Lodge #20. Friends may visit at the Jerrett Funeral Home-Vaughan Chapel, 8088 Yonge Street (south of Hwy. 7) on Sunday, November 18, 2012 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, November 19, 2012 at Good Shepherd Catholic Church, 21 Simonston Blvd. (Don Mills and Steeles) at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated by the family as your expression of sympathy.
