REMPEL, David Friday, 21 Nov 2014

Rempel,David June 15, 1955 ~ November 21, 2014

David Rempel went to his eternal rest on Friday, November 21, 2014 in Abbotsford, BC at the age of 59.

David was born in Comox, BC and spent his childhood in Black Creek on Vancouver Island and the Sumas Prairie in Abbotsford.

Dave discovered his love and talent for farming at a young age while helping his parents on the family farm which he later purchased to raise his own family on. His other passions in life were vintage vehicles and driving truck.

His brother Johnny will forever remember fondly their long drives to Anchorage, Alaska together.

Unfortunately Dave dealt with health issues that lead to difficulties in his life and impacted his relationship with those he loved and those he dealt with regularly in the community. Dave will always be remembered and in his family's thoughts, especially anytime they see a lime green Chevy truck.

He is survived by children Kara and Jess Lindsay, Karmen, Christen and Barry Rumbles, and Jeremy, grandchildren Ethan, Wyatt and Colton; mother Anne Rempel; siblings Judy, John and Karen. He was predeceased by his father John.

Burial took place at Yarrow Cemetery. Rest in peace David.

Online condolences may be offered at Woodlawn Mt.Cheam Funeral Home.
