Himmelman, David Russell, 69, of Brooklyn, Queens County, went home with his Lord, Tuesday, October 26th, 2010, at home, surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Liverpool, he was a son of the late Laurie and Marion (Peach) Himmelman.
His first job was on the Gypsum Boats, before going to work in the woodroom at Bowater Mersey Paper Company, where he worked for over 30 years up until his retirement. David loved anything to do with the sea, whether it was being on the boat lobster fishing, which he did from the age of 12, or taking his beloved Sunday afternoon drive along the ocean side. His grandchildren were his pride and joy and the more time he spent with them the happier he was.
He is survived by his loving wife, the former Judy Irene Frail; daughter Linda (Robert) Barker, of Liverpool; son Donald (Janet), of Eagle Head; grandchildren Kayla, Brandon, Breah, Garrett; brother Douglas (Beatrice), of Bridgewater; sister in law Rika, of Woodstock, Ontario.
He was predeceased by a sister Brenda and a brother Edward.
