RIP David. I will always remember my one and only fishing trip many years ago and of course your regular poker nights with the boys. You were always there for your friends and we will miss you.

Condolences for Dave’s family. RIP Dave, we enjoyed many laughs working together at Nortel and beyond. Memories of Tennessee and Beale St. come to mind. Thank you for all the discussions we had about music, sports and lots of menial subjects as well as always including me in your poker games with many of your good friends. I feel truly blessed to having known you.

David was my eldest cousin. Seeing his smiling picture holding that big fish reminded me of a similar picture of our grandfather, James Stuart McDonald – another avid fisherman. I truly wish I had known Dave better. My thoughts are with Judy and DJ and Ariel. Rest in peace, Dave.

My dear friend,
Saddened to hear that you’ve left us. I will always cherish memories of our weekly hockey games, softball league with Hunter Douglas, Sunday morning touch football, the Stubby invitational, and of course your organizing and cooking skills. You are a true friend that I’ve been blessed to know and love.
My sincere thoughts are with Judy, DJ, and Dave’s extended family.

Never had the pleasure of meeting Dave in person, but even if it was just over the phone,
sharing life stories over the years,….. and some work news, of course
Dave was very unique , in all the right ways.
He has set the bar high, for us to live our lives , with courage, strength and courtesy , wrapped in humour
