Dave was such a wonderful neighbour and friend. He was so kind to my Dad, Alvin Smiley, when he lived in the Imperial Place condo. Dad would frequently call on Dave to help with a few projects and Dave was always so willing and helpful. He always had time to chat and share an interesting story. We wish to express our deepest condolences to the Kowal family and Gerrie. Bev and Cathy Workman.

Our sincere sympathy goes to Jeff, Kara, Gerrie and all of Dave's family. Dave's exuberant voice and all enveloping smile will be remembered by hundreds for a long time. My personal memory of Dave on the first base line cheering on his kids when ours were the opposition will stay with me forever. He brought happiness to all.

Geri, my deepest condolences to you and all of Dave’s family. He was just so involved in life. Dave and I served on many curling committees together over the years but my special memory will always be of him as a volunteer in cancer care, serving me my lunch during my chemo treatments as we was fighting the disease as the same time.
Always smiling, never complaining, just helping the patients. He will be remembered and missed by so many.

Our condolences to Dave's family. I was so fortunate to meet Dave on my very first day of training at Westman Lab, he was my good friend and mentor throughout my years there. Although Wilson and I moved away from Brandon years ago, whenever we were In town we made a point of visiting the lab and if lucky, Dave was there to make us smile..

My deepest condolences to all of Dave’s family. I first met Dave 45 years ago when we were both attending a youth conference at Brandon University, and then we both went on to study Medical Laboratory Technology at the same time. He always had a smile or a humorous word or two for me. Rest In Peace, Dave.

There are certain people who touch the lives of those they know in a unique way.
Knowing them brings us joy and inspiration, and when they are gone,
Memories of all they have done stay with us. . I am grateful to have known such a special person. Thank You David for looking after my Mom when she was in the Brandon Hospital.

Though it was many years since I worked with and we played slo-pitch with Dave, time melted away whenever we ran into him. He had a lively interest in anything - it was always entertaining having a chat with Dave. You always walked away with a smile. Our deepest heartfelt sympathy to you all.
