He married Helena Wiebe on Nov. 11, 1950.

He ran a leasing and operating a Home Oil service station with his brother Jake.

In November, 1999, he had his first 'so called' seizure. March 10, 2000 he was taken to a neurologist in Vancouver and was diagnosed with Fahr's syndrome: calcification of the brain. This caused deterioration of his body over the 9 years.

Dave attended Maplewood house 2 days a week and really enjoyed it. Even though he was disabled he was always happy and never complained.

He is survived by his wife, Helena, of 58 years; son Victor (Irene); Grandchildren: Sharon (Darcy Froese); Brian (Andree) and Jeff; Great grandchildren: Rachael, Kaitlyn, & Jaden Froese, and Johnathan Abrahams.

Thanks to the staff and Maplewood House and the Cottage for all your help.
