December 18th, 1946 – July 9th, 2014
With much sadness the family of Dave Laird announces he passed away peacefully after a short illness, July 9th 2014. His family was at his side.
Wife of 45 yrs June, daughter Nicole, son Rob (Danean), granddaughters Brenna, Dailah, Danika and many extended family members will be sustained by so many happy memories of a loving husband, father, and grandpa (Poppy).
Dave worked as a service manager and residential builder in Richmond B.C. before moving his family to the Comox Valley in 1976 to teach at Robb Road and Highland Secondary Schools as a shop teacher for 30 yrs. This time also included a teacher exchange year in Perth Australia.
His interests included playing and coaching rugby, woodworking, sailing, golf, RVing, and involvement in Skills Canada trades competitions for high school students.
Always available to help family and friends with renovation projects, he enjoyed a challenge anytime, anywhere.
We know you are with the Angels now Poppy and we can feel your gentle hand guiding us forward. You taught us all so much.
Dave did not want a public service. Family will gather at a later date in Comox and Powell River. If you wish to send con-dolences, please visit www.piercysmtwashingtonfuneral.com
