Recently retiring from Mailman Projects; he started working for Fresh cuts market, travelling to the Valley and surrounding areas making new friends.  He was also an Honorary Fireman with the Northfield District Fire Department and served the community for 40 years.

If you invited David over for a meal, you better have tomatoes, he loved tomatoes more than anyone else.  He was a kind, giving, gentle soul and had a great respect and love for automobiles, especially his ‘62 Austin Healy, Honda Goldwing and 1979 Ford F150 Ranger. He cherished getting out on the open road.  He enjoyed going to the camp with his many friends and they enjoyed all the great stories he told. He was a catcher for the Venoitte’s TNT’s ball team and he attended the St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, in Bridgewater. He was very punctual, and he bought Nancy a house full of clocks and watches to no avail. He enjoyed telling hilarious stories to everyone he met and had a great sense of humor. David had an easy-going attitude, held no grudges, did what he felt was right, and made everlasting friends easily all throughout his life. David will be dearly missed by his wife, his dog Elvin, family, and many close friends.

A private, family graveside service was held at Maple Grove Cemetery, in West Northfield. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Kidney foundation of Canada, Canadian Diabetes Association, or the Salvation Army.
