You were both so lucky to have one another. Your story has been such an inspiration to us. David will be forever young. Please keep running. He will find a way to be there, cheering you on. Love you Marion.
David was no ordinary man.He devoted his life to helping and caring for others, and in doing so achieved more inner peace and humility than anyone else I ever met. He was and will always be my role model for being a Good Samaritan and a true gentleman. I hope I can be half the man he was. Rest in peace.
I didn’t know David from running, dancing or musically. Every time I saw him though, was pleasant. Any interaction with him left me feeling good…pleasant,,smiling, optimistic. Too many good people leaving too early. My condolences to Marion and family.

Dave and Wanda Winaut
Just a few short weeks ago David came to tell us of his illness. We were shocked and saddned but he said he has lived 72 years( 52 married) and no regrets. In reading all the heartfelt messages there was a common thread of David’s life. He was a gentle man and a caring man to his family and his many friends.During the Liverpool run in 2013 where he ran with Arnold was just an example of his kindness to others.I will always remember his golfing tips and his latest running tip he heard in Digby when you ran Marion. David was one of the kind and Marion you lost your soul mate and We hope you will continue gardening and running with David by your side.
I was so sorry to learn of David’s passing. He always had a smile on his face and enjoyed a good joke. I know his thoughtful, caring demeanor will be remembered by all who knew him. Do try to remember the good times, it really does help. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Dear Marion and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. David was such a helpful, gentle, friendly man. Always a cheerful word and wonderful smile. A huge loss to you and your family, and all the community around the Shore Road (and beyond). I am so sorry. You have my deepest condolences, Gill
Pat and Geno Messore
We will never forget our trip with the Herlson’s to Nova Scotia. David was the “native son” who made sure we experienced all his home town had to offer. A wonderful man – a life well lived.
We will hold him in our hearts forever!
Gerald & Vina Moses
So sorry to hear of David’s death. He was one of the folks who welcomed us when we moved to Western Head as we would meet Marion and David as they jogged around the area. Our condolences to Marion and family…
I am so sorry to read of the passing of David! I enjoyed conversations with David! He was certainly passionate about health and fitness and was a positive supporter of the running community! He was an inspiration and I enjoyed seeing he and Marion running, walking and cycling together! I will miss seeing him pass by our home with a smile and wave.
John Rideout / Jenny Keenan
During the summer of 2013, I was running in Moncton and a passing car called out my name. Later, in September, you and David ran in the Berwick 5 miler and it was then that he told me that he was the “mystery” driver in Moncton. He (and I ) had a great chuckle when I told him that I had no idea who had called out to me.
David was a true gentleman. David and you made a great couple and you both contributed to the sport of running.
You are in our thoughts.
John & Jenny

Tom Ross - Middleton, N.S.
Marion: My condolences with David’s passing. I was away at the time and learned of his death on return. I have fond memories of running around Western Head with David years ago when I lived in Liverpool (’78-82). At that time, David had just taken up running and would run short distances with me as I passed the house. He always told me he would run around the entire Head with me someday and, in time, he was ultimately doing this. Always enjoyed seeing you and him at the races, most recently 2 months ago in Digby. Again, my thoughts and prayers for a good guy.

Marion & Family,
We were so sad and shocked to hear of David’s passing. I remember the first time I met him at the Old Italy Cross Fire Hall.
He was so wonderful and told me a lot about you and himself. He talked about his marathons and how much you both enjoyed them.
He also loved the Music Jams. You both were such kind people. David was playing his guitar and always had that wonderful smile we will never forget. He was always happy and told us how much he enjoyed Gary’s Guitar Playing and my singing. You both also were so great to bring Fred to the Jams. Our Love Prayer’s and Sincere Sympathy goes to all of you at this very sad time. David is now busy in Heaven running his Marathon with God and playing his guitar for the angels. God Bless you all.
Love Gary & Heather Crossland.
