After university, he worked for many years with Reynolds and Reynolds in Winnipeg and Toronto as an IT specialist. Subsequent to retirement, Dave lived at Revera Portsmouth in Tuxedo where he was an active participant in that community. Dave was a quiet man who will be remember for his dry sense of humor, thoughtfulness, kindness and willingness to assist others. Over the years, Dave was a fisherman, a sports enthusiast, a music lover, a poker player, a traveler and a volunteer. He will be sorely missed and fondly remembered by many. Our thanks go to the staff and friends at Portsmouth and to the nurses and home care attendants who gave him great support.
