David was born on August 18, 1963 in Regina, Saskatchewan and is the fourth sibling of twelve. As a youngster David was a very gifted model builder. David was very proud of his electric train sets, and was an avid collector and history buff. David loved children and they loved him. David spent many hours providing childcare and taking care of the home after our mother passed away at the age of 53. He also provided frequent caregiving for his siblings’ children and grandchildren over the years, in particular for Sandra because he lived in her home and cared for Jacob. David helped with the care of our father as well until his passing in June of 2019 at the age of 94. David was an avid walker and was involved in the community through the Olive Tree charity in Lloydminster. David was a Christian and was an active member of the Christ-Committed Community Fellowship. This is where he spent many hours engaged in church activities including singing in the Praise and Worship Band. David continued his caregiving profession with church members, particularly one family who he lived with for a time.
David was a compassionate, gentle, quiet, private soul and was also a knowledgeable, animated conversationalist when the occasion arose. David, will always be remembered for his easy smile, laugh and witty humour. David faced his recent diagnosis with courage, dignity, and grace, always thinking of other’s needs first right to the end. David will be sorely missed by all those who knew and loved him.
