David passed away at Carpenter Hospice in Burlington after a long and courageous 26 year battle with cancer. His wife and best friend of 59 years Beverley (Stewart) and his daughters Carol (Stephane Gagnon), Brenda (Carlos Cerqueira) and Janice (Ken Brohman) were at his side. David will always be fondly remembered as Pops by Owen, Erica (Brohman), Madeline, Sebastian (Cerqueira), Alexandra and Charlie (Gagnon). David graduated from U of T with a degree in Engineering, from McMaster University with his MBA and from Western University with an Executive Financial Management MBA. David joined Dofasco Inc. after graduation and worked there for his entire 37 year career. He sat on many boards as a director both for work and later for the Hamilton Regional Cancer Centre Foundation. He was awarded The Charles F. Rand Memorial Gold Medal for Distinguished Achievement in Mining Administration on his retirement. David’s greatest passions were skiing, sailing and golf, but family always came first. He supported his girls in all their endeavors and was very proud to be their father. Stoney Lake was a very special place for David. He grew up there as a youngster and passed his love of the lake on to his family. We hope that you will take a moment and remember David. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation, Juravinski Cancer Centre / Hematology or Carpenter Hospice, Burlington.
