Two sons: Cameron and his wife Jill Marie, their son Rylan; David and his wife Crystal, their children Avery and Kendal. Grandchildren: Lindsey and Christopher Spence. He is also survived by one sister Nancy Murray; niece Linda Obodiak; and nephew Douglas Murray.

Dave was predeceased by two sons: Robert in 1996 and Douglas in 1997.

It was Dave’s wish to have no formal service but to have a wake. We will celebrate his life at the Comox Golf Club on January 11 at 4 pm. All friends welcome. Cremation has taken place and his ashes will be interred with his sons in Banff on February 22, 2007.
