David passed away suddenly on October 8, 2019 in Spruce Grove, AB.
David had a big heart and once you were his friend, it was for life. He was a giving person as his family and friends will attest.
David will be forever loved and sorely missed by dad Dennis; mom Sandra; sister Kathleen; brother-in-law John; nieces, Shaye and Kylee; his Alberta family, Harold, Tracy, Tanner and Ciarra Papineau, Steve and Angela Wall. He is survived by aunt Joanne; uncle Ted; numerous cousins and his many friends in Alberta and Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Cremation has taken place and we will be bringing David home to Thunder Bay.
