UPDATED TIME AND DATE DUE TO WEATHER CONDITIONS
Sending so much love to all of you during these unimaginably sad days. David’s warm heart and warm smile will be missed by all. I feel very fortunate to have grown up with him and to have shared many happy family events with him over the years – often with him having at least one hand on the family puppy and making sure the kids are having fun.
We were so very saddened to hear of David’s passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Deepest condolences to all your family.
Sincerely, Keith and Rose Whiteway
Don and Trixie were are so sorry to hear about David’ passing.

Nancy and Morley Kenway
Don, Bob and I were so very sorry to hear of David’s passing . Bob and I send our sincere condolences to you, Trixie and Janice. You are all in our thoughts.
Don, Trixie and Family:
We were so very saddened to hear of David’s passing, and extend heartfelt and deepest condolences to you and the entire family. Hold tight to the beautiful memories you have of your precious son. May the love of family and friends give you comfort now and always. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.
Don and Trixie….. I’m so sorry to hear this news. It’s difficult to know exactly what to say but know you’re in my heart. Life is a journey and it’s not always the way we thought it would be or want it to be. Take care and it’s a comfort knowing you have each other to lean on.
To the White Family:
I did not meet David in person but we spoke online often over the duration of the Pandemic, and up to maybe a month back I guess due to the change in Twitter’s Algorithm.
When I learned of his passing to say I was shocked would be an absolute understatement.
I don’t think I could possibly convey to you how much he meant to the online NL Twitter Community, but I hope you can get a sense of that through the amount of condolences you are receiving online .
He was such a bright , intelligent, kind, respectful person and the comic relief for us all at a time when the world needed it most. It was easy to see he was a genuine person and a good soul.
We bantered a lot about Food, Hockey, and Dogs. He began every morning over summer months with a tweet when he started his work day , a reminder to us all to have a good day and pet an animal. He would then follow up with his Dashboard Lunch – I think we all looked forward to seeing what he had as the week progressed. It almost always included a chocolate milk and I would remind him often that he needed to pack more water and stay hydrated .
He is going to be missed. I have thought of him often over the course of the last few days since learning of his passing and I can assure you that I’ll continue to think of him with every single Raven that I see, as he spoke of his love of them often.
You’re the sunlight shining in my eyes,
A breeze that passes by
A golden leaf from a maple tree
and the clear blue morning sky.
You’re the whisper that passes by my ear
When the wind has something to say
You’re the sunset in the afternoon
to end another day.
Then at night you light the sky
and twinkle with the moon
To let us know another day
Will yet be coming soon.
RIP you beautiful soul. 💐
Your Twitter Friend,
A beautiful service to celebrate the life of a beautiful person who brought so much to so many.
Sending you all my deepest condolences. May the memories you have of David bring you comfort and peace. Take care of each other, that is what he would want.
So sorry to hear of David’s passing. You don’t know me but I worked with him. He was so sweet and we had quite a few laughs together. He will certainly be missed. Hugs to you all. May he Rest In Peace.
I can’t find the words….you always could!
You are missed.
Trixie, Don, Janice and family. So sorry for the lost of David. Having lost our own daughter we can feel you pain. Stay strong !
Mac and Trixie Downer
Louise and I send our heartfelt condolences on the passing of your dear son.
My condolences to David’s family, I’ only met Dave on Twitter but he was one of my best Twitter friends, we exchanged pictures of food all the time & we were true Montreal Canadians fans who stuck together. I would also let David know when Sobeys had Monterey Jack cheese on sale which I will miss the most, he was kind & funny on Twitter that’s what everyone loved about him.Rest in Peace David you deserve it my Twitter friend.
I only ever knew David from Twitter, but I’ll always remember his love of candy and chocolate milk. He was quick to go to bat for the people he cared about, and spoke so fondly of his family. I remember when he got assigned the task of watering his parents’ plants one time…he was so scared he was going to water them wrong and make his folks sad.
Sending condolences to you all.
David was an amazing online friend. He had an amazing sense of homour and even larger heart. He is truly missed. May you rest easy and have all the choc milk you can handle. Condolences to all who loved him. Fly high!
My condolences to Dave’s famiy and friends,
Like many on here I only knew Dave thru Twitter. We shared a few laughs about hockey, food among other things. I remember one night in particular it was rather late and we were talking about candy, he got me wanting some so bad I had to leave the house late at night to go get some….lol.
He was one of the good ones that comforted many when they needed it. Our little Nl Twitter group has a void in it and he will be missed by many on that app.
Rest easy Brother and I sure hope you got one hell of a nice dump truck to drive now.
David was an amazing Twitter Bro. He was there cheering us up, being so funny. Loved a good argument just to have a laugh. His lunches was hilarious. He left a footprint in every heart that knew him. He shall shine on and his memory will bring a smile to many faces. 💙
To David’s family,
Like many on here I was a Twitter friend of David. There has been a huge hole in the Twittersphere over the last few weeks. I will miss his humor and dashboard lunch updates!
Condolences to you all.
Trixie, Don, and Janice,
We were so shocked and saddened to learn of David’s untimely passing! There are no words to express what you must be going through. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Keep your memories close. David was a wonderful student of mine. He will be missed. Stay strong. We are so sorry for your immense loss.
Lois and Darroch Jones
David was one of my first friends on Twitter. He was warm and sweet and full of love for animals. We’ll miss you and I’m sure you are flying with the crows you loved so. Deepest condolences to your loved ones. 🕊️🕯️
Dave, we only met in person for the first time last Summer when we were helping a friend move. You were a pure gentlemen and a funny one at that. Twitter was a much better place with you on it.. We had many a chat about music and I will miss them for sure. So glad we met my man, see you on the other side.
David had a love for dogs, hockey, poutine, crows,/ravens, the great outdoors and all of the people he met on Twitter. I’m one of those people. There is so much to remember about him. His dashboard lunches were a hit with those who knew him. He was right beside me on my journey to adopt my little dog, Macie. David just adored her and talked frequently about someday finding his own dog.. I shared with David my love for metal detecting and later magnet fishing. He said he someday wanted to get a metal detector and find some great artifacts. We shared an interest in the TV program , The Curse of Oak Island, about two brothers set out to find treasure left behind hundreds of years ago. David was just so down to earth and had such a wide age range of friends. I have a daughter a year older than him, so it was really easy to connect with him.. He had such a wide range of interests and loved music and his guitar.
We had so many laughable moments., even the one of him having trouble growing facial hair. I guess it never came out the way he anticipated it would. He could turn everyday life around and make fun of it in a way that just made sense. He will always, ALWAYS be remembered for that.
I am so sorry for the loss of your most beloved son,..David is going to be terribly missed by all of those who knew and loved him on Twitter.
You have my deepest condolences 💐
RIP you beautiful soul 💐
Don, Trixie and family
I was deeply saddened to hear of David’s sudden passing. Thinking of you and your family during this difficult time. My heart aches for you all.
Mr. & Mrs. White,
I’ve been having trouble coming up with a condolence that puts in to words just how highly I thought of your son. Like a number of others here, I was lucky to meet David through Social Media and in-person thereafter. He was a bright light in the darkness during the pandemic.
He was so many things to so many people: a friend, brother, son, boyfriend, and trucker-extraordinaire(!) – but to me he was an understanding ear who didn’t hesitate to check on people when they were feeling low, he was hilarious and unashamed to be himself and he wasn’t afraid to speak his mind or stand up for others.
He had excellent spelling and grammar, knew how to use their in a sentence properly and we shared many laughs over poor editing on news articles. He spoke so highly of his family, of everyone really… you could tell immediately that he was everyone’s type of person. A friend to all.
My heart goes out to everyone feeling this immense loss, because I know there are many. We are better people for having known him and I am so so grateful for having had his friendship. <3
Don and Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you .
May God grant you comfort and peace.
Sincerely, Retired Teachers, Avalon East.
Janice, Greg and family, we are sorry to hear of the passing of your brother. May your memories bring you comfort through this difficult time please know that we are thinking of you..

My sincere condolences from my family to yours.
David was a friend of mine on Twitter and his kindness and sense of humour shone through.
Rest In Power David, you will be missed.
David, “Batts” to me on Twitter, was one of the very first friends I found on Twitter several years ago. He was unfailingly helpful, patient, funny, dependable and kind.
He loved his family, friends and Newfoundland. And his “poutine”.
Although many may be yet unaware of his passing, I will continue to let as many of his friends know as I can.
My blessings and strength to your family. David was a good man.
I’m so sorry! I know David from Twitter. He was always a laugh – making the funniest posts. I will miss his sense of humour!

To my lifelong and dearest friends Triixie and Don:
I am saddened beyond belief to hear about the death of you dearest and only son, David.Trixie, we were both pregnant at the same time, in our older years, and each of us did not know about the other until much later. We were all so happy when David was born and you were so luckey to have a son. We watched David grow up through our many, many visits on long weekends and holidays. We were and still are like family since I met Trixie in 1962 at Bishop Jones Hostel. We became like sisters and still are to this day.
There is no way that I can describe how I feel. Itis as if I had loss one of my own.. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this most difficult time in your lives . I have been and will continue to be in contact with you in the difficult days ahead.I will be there for you no matter what. My only regret is that I am unable to be with you due to circumstances beyond my control.May God sustain you in the days ahead.
Love and hugs to you, Janice and all your family.

Like many people who have left condolences I met David on social media . We had great online/offline chats and I had hoped that one day we would meet in person when I came back to NL to visit my own son. Sadly I waited too long . So sorry for your loss David had an energy you could feel and I know he will be missed by many who never actually have the gift of meeting him . This hits me hard I have children his age and I can’t imagine the grief you are feeling . My deepest condolences :
Dear Trixie , Don and family,

To Whitey’s family and loved ones –
Dave and his many friends came into my life in my late teens, when high school had ended but it felt like real life hadn’t begun. I was definitely a bit lost after high school, but as it happens my best friend Rob started dating Whitey’s friend Becky going on 20 years ago, I was welcomed into their huge social circle, and here we are. We all became fast friends, and the group was so welcoming, but nobody was as kind as Whitey. It’s funny how my memories from that time go from not knowing any of these people (him, Christine, Nick, Becky, Erika, Adam Squires, Shane Lambert, Shane Boland, Laura, Matt Gosse, Jeanette, Emilee, and many others) to a point where we spent all of our time together, in the span of months. We were young, and not very smart, but honestly, Whitey was the best of us. He was a gentle soul, chilling out doing his own thing at parties while some of us (…me, it was me) partied like total fools. But it was always a safe space, with good people, and we had so much fun. I miss those days.
I’ve been in total shock since learning he’s passed, and have struggled with finding how to phrase this. I didn’t know him that well but he had a huge impact on me and my life. My sincere condolences to everyone who knew and loved him. I hope we can all find some peace in the many memories of his kindness and the good times we shared.
My deepest condolences to David’s family and friends. A genuine man for sure. Xo
Don, Trixie, & Family,
Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of your son David. While I did not know David, from what I have learned he was a wonderful person and I know you both will miss him terrible. Please treasure the great memories that you have and may he rest in peace and one day rise in glory
Dave had a number of friends on Twitter – some he’d met and some not. But we wanted to honor him – so we’ve made a $575 donation to the SPCA St. John’s in his memory. Rest easy, Battsy
-your friends on Twitter 🫐

Dear White family,
Like so many others, I too only knew David through our Twitter interactions. I looked forward to his hilarious tweets each day, you never knew what he was going to say. He always shared his truck lunch pictures, and his love of animals, especially dogs. He would always comment on my dog and meal pictures, and said he was going to show up for supper one night. I always told him the door was open. I am truly saddened by his passing, he was a bright light to so many. Sending my deepest condolences to you all. Rest easy sweet David.
Dear Trixie, Don and Family:
Our thoughts, prayers and Deepest Sympathy are with you at this very difficult time. I remember David well as a little boy from St Michael’s. May God grant him eternal rest.
To the Janes and White Family,
I’m very sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences to you all during this difficult time.

To David’s Family,
Mr. & Mrs. White,
I met your son, David, over social media, Twitter, he was a very nice young man, always very polite to myself.
He brought many a smile to my face and everyone faces, each day.
He is definitely going to be missed on Twitter by us all to had the opportunity to get to know and interact with in person. That, I am 100% sure off.
Rest in peace David, my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
To David’s Family
Mr. & Mrs. White, you raised a fine human. I met David through his job at Parsons Paving, he was a dedicated employee, Dump Truck Extraordinaire.
Janice, he must have been the best brother ever. I am sure his wit and humor kept you in your toes.
David and I had become friends on Twitter prior to meeting, we shared many common quirks and he was always a great conversationalist. People may think, it’s strange to say friends and Twitter in the same sentence, but NL Twitter is a community like no other on social media, it is because of people like David.
I was blessed to have known him. He sweetly called me by a pet name only he used. May he RIP and fly with the greatest guitar players of all time, Jimi Hendrix & Randy Rhodes.
Blessings, peace and kindness
We only met once but chatted on social media quite often. Your positive impact on me and many more will always be remembered. Rest peaceful my friend
Shocked and saddened to hear of David’s passing. He was one of the brighter lights with his effortless charm and wit. I’d like to offer my sincerest condolences to his loved ones. I’m sure there are many who will miss this young man very much.
My sincerest on condolences to all those who loved David.
I became “ friends” with David through Twitter and he let his wonderful and generous personality shine through every single day. He was so supportive of people and always had a kind word.
He had a great sense of humour and used it daily.
Wishing him love and light and eternal peace..
Don, Trixie & family,
So sorry to hear of David’s sudden passing. Please accept my deepest sympathy. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.

Sincere condolences for your loss. I knew David throughout his teen years as he was a friend of my sons. I remember him as a kind, polite young man who was pleasure to have visit/hang out in our home. My heart breaks for your loss.
Don, Trixie, Janice, Greg, Madeline, and Peter,
Words cannot express my sorrow for you. David was a kind, giving, and compassionate man. He got me through some of the hardest times of my life and I wouldn’t be where I am today without his love and support over the years. He was dearly loved by all his friends and he dearly loved them. He loved his family more than you will know (and was especially proud of Madeline and Peter). I will carry David, and our memories, with me for the rest of my life, as I know you will too.
Rest in Peace, David
Don, Trixie and family,

We are so sorry to hear of David’s passing.
We interacted with David almost daily on social media. He always made us smile,
He was the sweetest, and we regret not meeting him in person. He wanted to meet our dogs and they would of loved him.
Rest in peace David

Mr. White & family, I am so sorry to hear of David’s passing. I have memories of from when I was a little girl and constantly asking David what he was doing in the backyard from our shared fence. Thinking of you all during this difficult time.
I’m in shock tonight to learn of Dave’s passing. We never met in person he was one of my first Twitter buddies and we seem to hit it off right from the get go. He was down to earth and loved a great laugh and the picture in his obituary definitely defines Dave, he sent me that picture the night it was taken last Christmas while he visited his parents for a Christmas dinner he loved that puppers. I was hoping to meet him this summer as I promised him some moose sausage, I’m feeling like I’ve lost a brother I never met. Until we meet my buddy RIP

Linda Barron (Dicks)
Completely devastated. I’m at a loss for words. I had the pleasure of meeting David a few years ago when he started getting tattooed by me. As soon as he sat in the chair I knew we were going to be friends. David had a humble and kind nature that is very rare to find in people these days. Truly an old soul. I recall him talking about how much he loved his mom and dad on numerous occasions. You raised a good man. My sincere condolences to your family. I miss him already.
Dave was a bright spot in a world of darkness. He will be greatly missed by an online family who all felt the same – he was loved by all. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
Don and family

So sad to hear of Dave’s passing. I am one of hundreds of people who ‘met’ and ‘knew’ Dave from social media. His posts and our online conversations were bright spots in my day. My sincere condolences. We were all lucky to have known Dave in whichever format.
Rest easy, Dave.
My condolences to his family and friends. I was a school buddy of Dave’s during grade school and watched wrestling together and played a lot of road hockey. Rest easy Whitey.
