August 19, 1957 - August 19, 2019

Following a courageous battle with cancer, with family at his side, Dave passed away on August, 19, 2019, at the age of 62, at Seven Oaks Hospital.
He will be missed terribly by his love of 20 years, Fiona Wiebe; his daughter Dana (Shane); sons, Sean and Kyle (Mallory); stepson Michael (Jenna); grandchildren, Payton and Guinevere; sister Leslie (Joss); his beloved Auntie Nellie, and countless friends.
Dave is predeceased by his parents, Olga and Walter; and his Uncles Peter and Alec.
Dave worked for Willmar Windows for numerous years before finding his true passion as an independent contractor. Those who had the privilege of knowing Dave also knew of the great loves in his life - family, friends, hunting, fishing, his farm, and his trucks. He was always happy to share stories about learning the ins and outs of auto mechanics at his father's autobody shop, how his mother defended him as a long-haired teenager, growing up with his extended family, his Auntie Nellie's cooking, and above all else, how proud he was of the three children he raised.
A celebration of Dave's life will take place Monday, August 26, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. at Klassen Funeral Home, 1897 Henderson Hwy.
Dave's family would like to give a heartfelt thanks all of his friends, as well as the medical staff at Seven Oaks Hospital.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba.

  • David was a remarkable person. He would always be there to help those in need. He loved the province of Manitoba and enjoyed many wonderful experiences in its rural areas. Most of all he was extremely proud of his children and loved them dearly. I will miss his comments on how grateful he was even with the smallest things. He was always thankful. - Posted by: Gordon (Friend ) on: Aug 23, 2019
