Savard, David Andrew

(March 26, 1955 – April 20, 2015)

On a warm, sunny day, Dave passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends.

Dave was born and raised in Ladysmith, BC. He became a steam

engineer/millwright spending most of his working career at Harmac, BC with brief stints in Mackenzie, BC, and Fort McMurray, AB.

He was a devoted and loving husband to Shirley for 33 years. Dave will be remembered for his hard work and commitment to his family and friends, love of entertaining, travelling, and sports. Dave’s sense of humor, kindness, sincerity, and most of all his generosity will be missed by all, but not forgotten.

Dave was predeceased by his parents, André and Inez, stepfather Andrew McKinley, and nephew, Shawn.

He is survived by his wife Shirley, sister Diane Savard, brother-in-law and wife (Leonard and Dianne Tong), brother-in-law, Dick Tong, much loved nieces, nephews, family and friends.

Special thanks to Dr. J. Lisinski, the Community Home Care Nurses, the staff at LCHC Urgent Care, our niece Tiffanie, and Dave’s sister, Diane for their attentive care.

Dave will be in our hearts forever.

I am truly touched by the outpouring of love and support from our family and friends during our challenging times, reaffirming how much Dave was loved. – Shirley
