With grace and dignity, Dave passed into the arms of his Lord on Sunday, Mar. 28, 2004 at the Chilliwack General Hospital following a short and courageous battle with cancer.
Dave was born April 8, 1948 in Saskatoon, Sask. to his predeceased parents, George and MaryJane Corke.
He grew up with 5 brothers and sisters in the Kamloops area. At the age of 15 years, Dave moved to Chilliwack. There he met and lived with his extended family in Columbia Valley.
Dave worked at a shake mill and then with Canada Post with whom he transferred to Kitimat, where he lived for a few years. When his physical health no longer permitted him to continue working, Dave moved back to Chilliwack and made a host of new friends during his daily walks downtown.
C.N.I.B. became a social outlet where he avidly enjoyed bowling and biking. His computer opened the door to his ongoing quest of learning.
A Celebration of Life Memorial will be held Saturday, Apr. 3 2004 at 1 pm at Woodlawn Mt Cheam Funeral Home, 45865 Hocking Ave. Chilliwack, BC, Major Angus Haggarty celebrant.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Dave, to the CNIB or to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.
