Katelyn & Steven I am so sorry to hear about Dave. My family (The Shavers) have great memories with Dave, and family, with picnics, family gatherings, and the Cobourg Lumber connection. I personally worked with Dave at Weston Bakeries, and always enjoyed hearing stories from him, about growing up with my mom You are in my thoughts Danielle
Katie and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Dave, aka "Ziggy" , was a pleasure to call a friend . We spent many hours playing ball for the Diamond Dogs, he was a natural. Most of us would wear shorts when it got hot but Dave always wore his long ball pants. We shared good times, lots of laughs and a few adult beverages. He was a really nice guy
Dave was our best man at our wedding. He and David Lougheed were great friends, through their years in high school and especially when it came to sports! I’m sure my Dave would be surely feel sorry loosing his friend! Sincerely, CarolAnn

Katelyn and Steven: I have not seen David in recent years but we were in Scouting at St. Peter's Church together from Cubs to Ventures. David and I shared an apartment on Reid Street in Peterborough when he was a student at Fleming College. I was working at GE down the street. He was a great guy and always helpful at camps from cub camp at Shelter Valley as a Scout to a Venture. He enjoyed camping north of Mazinaw Lake both summer and winter camping. My condolences to you both. I will try and make the service on Friday and bring you a scouting picture from the 1970's of St. Peter's 1st Scouting Troop with David in it.
Our sincere condolences....Dave was one hell of a ball player...one of the best I ever played with...heaven is getting one great guy.
sincere condolences to Dave's niece and nephew . i first met Dave when we bowled on Saturday mornings and then reconnected in high school, he was a great person someone i looked up to and respected.
I worked with Dave many years ago at Curtis. He was a funny, witty and kind soul, willing to help everyone. May he rest in peace, reunited with his family.
I will remember a man with a kind heart and warm smile
