FOOTE, David Arthur - December 6, 1939 - December 11, 2022
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of David Foote, who passed away peacefully, on Sunday, December 11, 2022.
David was born on December 6, 1939, to Arthur and Gwen Foote (nee Mihel) in North York, Ontario.
Trained as a car mechanic (but never graduated from high school) he spent his working years in car sales starting first with Fiat in 1956, Birchdale Lincoln in the 1980s, amongst a host of other manufacturers, and retiring from Hyundai in 2005.
He spent his retirement years with the love of his life, Carole Foote (nee St. Amand).
He split his time in Dunedin, Florida, with his writers group in the winter, and in Skerryvore, Georgian Bay, at the cottage in the summer.
David is survived by Carole Foote and her daughter, Tara Curvin; daughters, Julie Shortreed, Stephanie Booth (Scott Booth); and son, Andrew Foote (Lisa Foote).
His sister, Ruth Moore (David Moore); and grandchildren, Emily, Stuart, Taylor, Mitchell, and Christian.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to a Charity of Your Choice, in David's name.
