DAVID EDWARD CHANDLER July 1, 1956 - February 15, 2013 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of David Chandler. His Saviour came and took him home the morning of Friday, February 15, 2013. Our husband, father, grandfather was so loved and will be so very missed by his wife Kathy of 26 years, his daughters Angie (Chris) and Kylee (Mike) and grandchildren Asha and Jace David, along with many brothers and sisters. He was predeceased by his parents Wade and Jean Chandler and sister Verna. David was a wonderful husband and father. He always put his family first and took care of all our needs. He worked at Frick Construction for 30 years, enjoying running the big excavator. David also ran his own business Chandler Hauling for about eight years. One of his biggest accomplishments was contracting the building of his own home and doing a lot of the work himself with excellence. David was loved and respected by many people. Thank you to Concordia Hospital for the care given to David during his final days and to CancerCare for many months of treatment that were done with kindness and compassion. Memorial Service will be held Thursday, February 21 at 11:00 a.m. at Eastview Community Church, 3500 DeVries Ave. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in David's memory to CancerCare Manitoba, 675 McDermot Ave., Rm 1160 R3E0V9 204-787-4177. "Psalm 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want, He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul..."

- I knew Dave in high school and we became good friends. He taught me how to drive a standard transmission. He was a wonderful person. My heart goes out to his family and to Jean.

- My heartfelt sympathies to Kathy and family. To Jean and Rick, although many years have passed since I spent time with Dave, the times that we spent back in the "eighties" are still fond memories. Dave was kind, caring, and for awhile a great neighbor. Living in the same apartment block, and on the same floor, we shared stories, social gatherings, laughter, and many friends. I will always think of Dave, a sun drenched glow on his face and wearing a beautiful smile.
Rest In Peace Dave

I sincerely feel all your pain right now and I am so sorry.
Dave fought a hard battle and "Kudos" to him for that!
Kathy and family don't go back and think " could have would have"! You all did the best that you could given your circumstances.

- I knew Dave from our teenager days, and we had/have many mutual friends. Although I didn't know Dave really well, my memories of him are all positive ones, I recall he was a really good guy, and well liked. I was very surprised to hear of his passing, given his relatively young age. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with the Chandler family.
