In his latter years, he enjoyed the company of his dogs, family and friends.
Dave will be remembered for his quick wit and sense of humor.
In these unprecedented times, a celebration of Dave's life will be held at a later date to honour his memory.
As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made in Dave's memory to the Canadian Diabetes Association.
