DAVID A. FROESE
November 23, 1926 - August 2, 2021
David is survived by his daughter Lynnette Froese and her husband Rod Birch, his cherished granddaughters, Caryn and Allison Birch, grandson-in-law Eliya Ichihashi and his precious great-grandson Callum. David was predeceased by daughter Connie and his wife Margaret. David is also survived by his brother John Froese (Mary) and sister Margaret Kasak, sisters-in-law, Elnora, Mary and Verna, his Peters in-laws and many nieces and nephews.
David's teaching career began in 1946 and continued until 1992 in nine different schools in Southern Manitoba. He also taught Mathematics to many students in Winnipeg at Daniel McIntyre, Kelvin and Dakota. Dave was a passionate teacher whose patience in helping children and youth learn was in stark contrast to his "always on the go" personality. While his life was full of many sports activities and building projects until he was 90 there was no greater joy than spending time with his granddaughters, grandson-in-law and great-grandson or meeting a former student and reminiscing.
The family wishes to thank the support and caring from Lindenwoods Terrace, The Rosewood, Harold at Grace Hospital and Riverview Palliative Care. Thank you to all friends and family who have dropped by and kept in touch.
Private family celebration will be held.

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)
Mr Froese had a big impact on my academic and professional life. At Kelvin in the 70s I had suspiciously squeaked through '00' maths in grades 10 and 11. In grade 12 when I became one of his students it turned around in a big way thanks to his skill and especially his patience. Wanting to understand the mathematics behind things started with the confidence he gave me. RIP - Posted by: Andy Kunz (Student) on: Feb 15, 2022
Dave was one of if not the best teacher I ever experienced in all my school years. Daniel Mac 1968/69. Tough and fair. Actually was a cross the street neighbour on Fairmont Road for few years. Always enjoyed visits at DMCI reunions. - Posted by: Terry Slight (Former student. ) on: Aug 22, 2021
Mr. Froese was my high school teacher in 1955, 1956 & 1957. He was a great teacher, but also played & refereed hockey games with the students. In the religious class he read a story of the last times when Jesus would come and take Christians to heaven. Since I was rather rebellious I didn’t think that I was in right standing in my Christian walk. I subsequently recommitted my life with Christ. My Christian walk since then was full of joy and peace. Thank you Mr. Froese for reading this story to the high school students so many years ago ! My condolences to his family ! —-Art Penner former student - Posted by: Art PENNER (Former student ) on: Aug 08, 2021

Great Math Teacher!!! He made me like Math!!! I took 102 Math, and his patience, guidance and understanding, helped me follow in his footsteps, as I was a Behavioral Support Educational Assistant, with WSD, for 33 years!! RIP Mr. Froese. - Posted by: Susan Bosecke (nee Henley) (Student) on: Aug 07, 2021
Mr. Froese was my math teacher at Daniel McIntyre. He is the reason I loved math all of my life. A wonderful man and great teacher. My condolences to the family. - Posted by: Darlene Bonney (Student) on: Aug 07, 2021
