The family moved to Campbell River in 1975 and Dave worked as a millwright at the Gold River Pulp Mill, Elk Falls Pulp & Paper Mill and the Tmberwest Sawmill where he retired in 1998.
Dave was an avid outdoorsman & hunted and trapped and fished while growing up in Quebec. In Campbell River he was known affectionately as “Old Salty” as his greatest love was sport fishing; he worked as a fishing guide and had many a story to tell. He also enjoyed bowling, curling, wood working and building wooden clocks. Dave was always looking for ways to build a better mousetrap.
