LAPP, David Henry

Oct 25, 1932 – April 16, 2012

Dave passed away at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox after a short battle with cancer. He was pre-deceased by his father George and his mother Alice, brothers John, Phil, Bob and Dick, sisters Rose, Pearl, Betty and Bev (twin), his first wife Joan and second wife Phyllis. He is survived by brothers Ernie and Allen and sisters Muriel, Elsie, Ruth and Doreen, his son Michael (Marie), daughter Cheryl (Chris), stepdaughter Corae (Mathew and Jeffrey) and his grandchildren Catherine (James), Spencer and Shane, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Dave was born in Victoria, BC and at a young age, he moved with his family to the Comox Valley where he spent the rest of his life. The majority of his career he was a grader operator for the Dept of Highways. He was a proud lifetime member of the Courtenay Fish and Game Club. His passions included hunting fishing, camping and rebuilding steam engines. He also enjoyed the odd visit to the casino and his favourite lottery booth and going to the hockey arena to watch “the pocket rocket” score and “the wall” make saves.

Special thanks from Dave’s family go out to Don and Philip, all of his caring neighbors and the great staff on the third floor at St. Joe’s.

There will be no funeral by request. A celebration of life will be held on Saturday May 5th from 1 – 4pm at the Courtenay Fish and Game Hall 3780 Comox Lake Rd.
