Condolence from Chris and Roberta Kennedy on October 8th, 2014 7:44 pm

Condolences to your family, I went to high school and vocational school with Dave and lost track of him for while after that until one day he came up to me at Michelin while he was a contractor there and said hi. We had good conversation a few times while he was there and then he was hired at NS power. I saw him off and on after that and we reminisced about old times.Dave was an usher in our wedding party. He was once a close friend and sorry to see him go so soon.
Our hearts and Prayers go out to all your family.
Chris Kennedy

Condolence from Peter and Darlene McKean on October 12th, 2014 2:59 pm

I was sad to learn last night of Dave’s passing upon arriving home from moose hunting in Cape Breton. Dave was one of the nicest guys I have ever had the pleasure of working with while he was at Michelin. I always compared every other worker I had with me to Dave and none had ever exceeded him.. He never spoke ill of anyone and always had kind words and a smile. He also had a serious side when needed and spoke very highly of his family. He will be appreciated in heaven and hope I will once again get to see and speak to him. RIP to a great guy.
