My Story

David was a wonderful, kind man with a tremendously tender heart filled with love. He loved nature and animals. He believed everything had a soul and spirit. He was a loving caring father and husband. He was a loyal and faithful friend.

Even though he was a loner and a bit of a hermit he was always a leader in whatever he did. His humor was twisted and extremely funny. He agonized over not wanting to hurt people, especially those he loved. He was a fiercely beautiful man, inside and out.

In his younger days he searched for adventure by participating in adrenaline rushing extreme sports like boxing, cliff ski humping, helicopter snow skiing, and mountain climbing. In his late twenties he shattered both of his knees by jumping off the wrong cliff. The doctors said he'd never walk again. He proved them wrong.


He liked all kinds of music, from rock and roll, to classical, to new age, and beyond. His love of music started in his teens. He was a professional musician (bass player) most of his life, acoustical and electric. He played 'til the very end. He was also in the entertainment industry as a pyro-technician, electrician, sound man, and special effects, for over 30 years. A baker, as in bread, etc. for 30 years as well. When he moved to Florida he became a plumber and a computer geek. That is stated with GREAT pride and respect. He did wonderful things with his puters. He had 3, all hooked together with 3 screens hooked together too, and 1 keyboard that worked on all 3 puters. We watched movies and seasons of programs (that he downloaded to his 'puter)  on the TV in another room through his computer. Tools...he had almost every kind of power tool available.

He was born in Vancouver, British Colombia, Canada. Raised in Campbell River, on Vancouver Island. At times he lived in Nanaimo, Vancouver, Burnaby, British Colombia; Wembley, Alberta; and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

He met Janet Pauline online, on a site called Odigo, February 2002. He traveled to Central Florida March '02 to meet her, then moved to Florida to be with her April '02. They were married July 17, 2002.

His heritage and ancestry is Squamish and  Coast  Salish from his mother's side of the family. He was very proud of his ancestry and heritage.

He is survived by his mother Geraldine "Bunny", his daughters Berkley and Tanya, his sister and brother Dennis and Kathy, his wife Janet Pauline, and lots of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He strove to live by this anagram and words. T.H.I.R.D.L.
Trust...Honor/Honesty...Integrity...Respect...Dignity...Loyalty/Love

HE WILL FOREVER BE IN OUR HEARTS
