David Burkard

Monday Dec. 5, 2016

Sadly Dave died in the presence of Amy, Katie and Anna, at Nanaimo

Regional General Hospital at 67 yrs of age, from complications after

heart surgery on Nov. 2nd. Dave was born in Victoria B.C. and in 1975

set out with with his young family of three, to start a construction company

in the Comox Valley, David Burkard Construction, later changing

the name to BURLAC Const. which grew into a very successful business.

Three more children arrived by 1979.

As a man who loved to fish, Dave truly enjoyed being on the water and

always sharing his catch.

Dave was predeceased by parents Sylvester and Hilda, son Jonathan

and sister Shelley. He is survived by partner Linda Zaleschuk,

daughters Amy Bradshaw (Landon), Anna Zaleschuk (Christian) and

Katie Burkard. Sisters Joan (Jim) Bennett, Anne (John) Mace, Janice

Burkard and brother John (Joy) Burkard. Grandchildren Scarlett and

Saylor Zaleschuk, Maggie Bradshaw and Cruz Love.

As well as dozens of nieces, nephews and inlaws.

Since retiring Dave could be found trap shooting, chopping and stacking

wood, lots and lots of wood, reading a good western, and playing

with his toys.

Rest in Peace Dave in the eternal Happy Hunting Grounds…..autem

dolupta qui tem re reiumquia volo officia voluptatiis molo experum

consequatur, nim quas debis pore
