MWO (Ret.)

Aug. 10, 1951 – April 30, 2012

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of David Wooley. He left us on April 30, 2012 from complications of lung cancer. He was just 60 years old.

Husband, father, brother, friend: he was all of these things to everyone. Dave was born and raised in Edmonton until he joined the Military in 1969. He served 23 years as an EGS Tech until he retired from the Military in 1992. Since his retirement he also worked at Valleyhaven, Nordel Mini Storage, the Harrison Hot Springs Hotel and Taplow Feeds.

During his Military career he served in many places; CFB Penhold, CFS Dana, CFS Alsask, CFB Chatham, CFS St. Margret’s, CFB Baden, CFB Shearwater, CFS Sidney and finally CFB Chilliwack. He also served two tours in Alert. Dave loved the camaraderie of the Military, the Vedder Legion (Br. 280), the ASU and Kinkora Golf Course as he was an avid golfer who racked up 3 “holes-in-one” over the last couple of years.

Dave is survived, loved and adored by his wife of 41 years, Jacqualynne; son Kevin; 3 sisters Margaret (Ray), Marylou and Susan (Bill); 2 brothers Harvey and Jim (Shannon). Also brothers-in-law Bill (JoAnn), Rick (Sharon) and sister-in-law Lianne (Ernie). He also left many nieces and nephews and cat Tiggr. He was predeceased by his parents Harvey and Margaret Wooley.

Dave loved his family and friends and they loved him. He will truly be missed. Please join us to celebrate Dave’s Life at the Vedder Legion (Br. 280) on May 20, 2012 at 12:30 pm.
