Obituary

Dave was born in Prince Albert Saskatchewan, the second youngest of 7 children. He grew up in Prince George and later moved to Fort St. James to work in a sawmill and freight line business with his brothers. He was a proud Veteran of WWII where he served with the XII Manitoba Dragoons. Despite several close calls, he returned and in 1947 married Lucille Harrison. They remained in Fort St. James, where their son, Dale, was born, before moving to Prince George and subsequently, Nanoose Bay and Courtenay where he could be closer to his family. His past five years have been spent in Campbell River. Lovingly remembered by his son,...
