  • Sending sincere condolences to Ruthie and her family and Carl and Louise and remaining family. I am so sorry to hear of David's sudden passing. He was always had a friendly smile when you met him and it appears he was a hard working man his entire life and loving family man. He certainly will be missed by his family and also his friends. I have many memories of spending time years back growing up in Skylake with the Blahey family. I remember enjoying many picnics with Adam and Sambor school. We participated in races with the kids from Adam school yearly in the picnics. Sambor school always tried so hard to win a softball game against the kids from Adam school. This was often difficult mostly because they had more boys on their team. Cherish the wonderful memories and stay strong. Your family is in our thoughts. - Posted by: Irene /Eric Bechert...Nee..
