We thank God for David Robert Fair, whose life here on earth drew to a gracious close on February 14, 2019. He will be deeply missed by Mary, his wife of over 60 years, his children Deana, Denise (Rod), Ivan (Jane), and Elizabeth (Lyle), his nine grandchildren and their partners, and all who knew him.
Dave was born on May 6, 1930, and grew up on a farm just outside Paradise Valley AB. He moved to Edmonton in 1954, married Mary in 1958, and worked for Canada Safeway, primarily as a store manager, for over 30 years. Following early retirement, he drove a bus for school field trips, joining and enjoying the children in all their activities. Throughout his life he was actively involved in his church, and praised and thanked God every day for his family and friends.
A service to celebrate Dave’s life will take place at Beulah Alliance Church, 17504 – 98A Avenue at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, February 19, 2019. In lieu of flowers, we encourage donations to be made in his memory to Bethel Bible Camp (bethelbiblecamp.com) and the Edmonton General 9Y Hospice Continuing Care Centre (covenanthealth.ca/donate).
