David N. PILIP

June 30, 1947 – September 7, 2011

It is with great sorrow we announce Dave’s sudden passing on September 7th at CGH. He passed away peacefully with his family by his side.

Dave is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, Gwen; daughters, Lisa and Michelle; granddaughter Tiana; sister, Lillian (Jerry) Lesiw; as well as numerous relatives and countless friends.

Born in Edmonton Alberta, Dave travelled to BC in 1971 where he worked in the food industry as a meat cutter. In 2001, work brought Dave to Chilliwack where he spent 14 years at Vantage Foods. He took great pride in his work and enjoyed organizing and participating in various events for the social club. Dave made friends wherever he went and will be deeply missed.

A celebration of life will be held at the family home on September 19th between the hours of 1:30 and 4pm. In lieu of flowers a donation in Dave’s memory may be made to a charity of your choice.
