peacefully at home on August 26, 2022. Born in Luton,
England, he was the son of the late Joseph and Winnifred
David received his professional engineering designation from
British Motor Corporation (BMC) and Brookes College in Oxford,
England. During his apprenticeship, he met his wife, Judith, who
was studying abroad at the time, and (after finishing at BMC) followed her
back in Vancouver, Canada in 1964. David decided to continue his
education in Canada and in 1968 was among the first graduates

Judith made the decision to move across the country to Halifax, Nova
Scotia, where he obtained his master’s and doctorate at Dalhousie University. A
job posting at Acadia University’s English Department moved the
family in Kentville, Nova Scotia, where they raised their three
girls. Eleven years ago he and Judith built a house on the front
from the mountain to Centreville, N.S., where they enjoyed a beautiful
view of the valley and where he spent his last days.
Sports, especially those played outdoors or involved
racquet, squash and tennis in particular, were a passion for David.
Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, mountain biking and hiking were
also favorites, and he loved nothing more than doing these
activities with his family.
David maintained a very close relationship with his family
scattered in Canada, England, France and Switzerland.
Friendships from his early years in England, his stay in Great Britain
Colombia, and of course Nova Scotia were deeply appreciated, and he
much enjoyed reminiscing distant stories and more
recent past involving both family and friends.

Michelle Baron (Glyn Jones), Vancouver; Margot Day (Blair), Littleton,
Colorado; and Melissa (Jesse) Brotz, North Vancouver; sister,
