September 22, 1963 – December 29, 2021
David Klassen passed away at the age of 58, after a six- month battle with cancer. He is survived by his children, Zoe (13) and Logan (9), as well as his parents, Robert and Lynn Klassen, his sister, Janis and brother, Mark. He will also be missed by his girlfriend, Kim Swedberg.
Dave’s passion, first and foremost, were his children. As a loving, dedicated and supportive father, being Zoe and Logan’s Dad meant everything to him.
Motorcycle racing was a big part of his life. In over 2 decades of racing, Dave won numerous Amateur and Professional Championships. Dave was a well-liked and well-respected competitor in both Canada and the US, with multiple track records as well.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Dave worked as an electrician. He spent many years working in the film industry, as well as commercial construction and later had his own electrical contracting company. As an adult he mastered the piano and enjoyed writing music.
His family, and many long-time friends can attest to his loyalty and sense of humour. He will be greatly missed by all.
The family wishes to recognise the great effort made by his girlfriend Kim Swedberg and very special friends Mike Power, Bernie Ryan, Robin Campbell, and Reno Pellegrin, who lovingly helped ease his passing. Memorial to be held by invitation, at a future time. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of choice.Obituary
