  • Sorry to hear of my Uncle Dave,s passing, our love and thoughts are with all the family at this time.

    I have wonderful memories of my holidays spent with Uncle Dave and Aunt Marion and my cousins Heather, Valerie & David, I miss you all very much, I still have a laugh when I think of the Greyhound Bus Trip I went on with Uncle Dave and my father Tom McIntosh shortly after my mother passed away in 1981, Uncle Dave was so much fun and a huge support to his brother / my father Tom McIntosh, a special memory was our time spent on the trip in Canada / Niagra Falls – Sheraton Hotel, Uncle Dave was the entertainment officer for those passengers staying at the a hotel, I cried with laughter with his antics.

    Love to all my family in the USA. xxxxxxx

  • I want to express my condolences for your loss. I met David while walking my dogs on Norden Place and Greenfield.
    He was comical and we laughed a lot. Always pleasant. He had two dogs at the time, Sonny and Cher. I will miss
    him. May he Rest In Peace.
