So sorry to hear about your loss. Deepest sympathy to
all the family.

I am sorry to hear of David’s passing and extend my condolences to the family. I lived just down the street at 19 Memorial Avenue. We attended GFA together,, scouts, etc. I would have considered him a goof friend. He will be missed.

I am saddened to hear of Dave’s sudden passing, and wish to extend my sincerest condolences to Paulette, Laureen and families. Many are the talents and treasures of Dave to have comforted you, but I always admired the courageous turning point in his life when he left the security of Government work and boldly and successfully became an entrepreneur on his own terms ! The young Grand Falls boy done good !
