Loving and devoted husband to his wife Kerry of 52 years formerly of Peterborough, Ontario.
Proud and beloved Dad to his daughter Karen and her husband Dan Gainforth, John Smyth and his wife Erin and Mark Smyth.
Adored Grandpa of Kristen, Mitchell, Calvin and Kayleigh whom he loved dearly with all his heart. Dear brother of Jim Smyth his wife Angela, sister Patricia and her husband Fred Mason.
Will be fondly remembered by his many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Dear son of the late David and Kathryn Smyth formerly of Peterborough, Ontario. Dave started his career with Prudential Insurance in Peterborough and continued very successfully in the insurance industry retiring after 38 years of service. More importantly to Dave was the time he spent with his family coaching his sons in hockey and supporting his daughter in baton.
He always made sure he was there for special family events. Dave also enjoyed playing baseball with Eastview Men’s League for many years. We are very grateful and wish to extend a special thank you to the doctors, nurses and paramedics of Lakeridge Health Oshawa for their care, support and compassion for Dave and the family.
Special thank you to our family and friends for their continued support.
“He will be sadly missed by all.”
