Dear Patricia and family. I was saddened to hear of David’s passing. I had the pleasure of serving with him and always impressed with his informed opinions. He was always helpful and shared his guidance when ever asked. Guelph was lucky to have had him as a leader and as a caring volunteer to their community. May he Rest In Peace and his memories be a comfort to you. Kate Quarrie.

Sincere sympathy at this difficult time. So sorry to hear the news of David's passing. May you find the strength to get through this too. He had made many friends in his life, I am sure. Many are still around and will remember him for his friendship and care. Be comforted.
