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.
Visitation will be held from 7-9 p.m., on Friday, October 29th, 2010, from Chandlers’ Funeral Home. A Funeral Service will be held Saturday, October 30th, 2010, at 11:00 a.m., from Milton Baptist Church, followed by a reception. Reverend Corey Pickens and Reverend Doug Mailman officiating. Burial will be in Seaside Cemetery, Brooklyn. Family flowers only. Donations may be made to the Canadian Red Cross, South Shore Palliative Care Service, or to the Milton Baptist Church. Online condolences may be made at www.chandlersfuneral.com

Take care and keep you eyes on God who will carry you through.
Donnie, Linda , Judy and families ,
There are so many good stories that I could share with you all about David. But the one that I will never forget is when Mike was fishing with Dave and when they would get done evenings they would both come back to our place for a nice warm drink. Zack was only a baby then so when ever Zack would see Dave pull in the yard he would holler Santa. And Dave would always make sure he came in from the garage to talk to Zack. That’s what a great man he was… and will always remain. You all should be very proud to have had such a wonderful man in your lives.
May he rest in peace!
Love you all and am sendin you prayers in this tough time.
April, Mike, Zack and Zoey Whynot
