They married October 15th of that year, on David’s birthday. This October would have marked their 50th year together. From the moment they met they knew they were soulmates. David and his family moved throughout Quebec during his early childhood. They settled in Sudbury in 1954 on Riverside Drive. David attended Sudbury High School, worked in retail, outside sales and was currently a sales associate at Dunrite Rubber. David spent his summers at Tobacco Lake, Manitoulin Island surrounded by friends and family. It was a sacred space to him where he loved to fish, swim and spend his evenings by the fire listening to music and never missing the opportunity to catch a Manitoulin sunset. David was known for his sense of humor and loyal friendship. He was a kind and caring husband, brother, dad and grandfather.
