ROYAL, David Arthur

It is with great sadness, we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of David, May 16, 2015, at his home in Cultus Lake at the age of 67.

David was born in Vancouver on Friday June 13th, 1947. He was a devoted family man and was passionate about camping, fishing, cooking, garage sales, playing cards, gardening, watching/playing sports and was an avid reader. He was a thoughtful, adventurous and hardworking man who you could always rely on. He would strike up a conversation with anyone who crossed his path. David couldn’t go anywhere without bumping into a friend.

He was predeceased by his father, Charles. David and his bear hugs will be forever missed by his mother Gladys; siblings, Wayne (Sherry), Michael (Tracy), Kathryn (Andrew); his wife Nancy; children, Tonia (Brandon), Jana (James), Jordan (Emily); stepchildren, Kathy (Louis), Stacy, Shawn and extended family. His fishy kisses will be treasured by his grandchildren Grace, Lily, Hudson, Cara, Jamie, Nathan, Taylor & Jessie.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday May 23rd, 2015 at the Carman United Church 7258 Vedder Road, Chilliwack at 11AM. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Crohn’s and Colitis Canada in memory of David.
