On September 28, 2017, with his family by his side, David closed his eyes and went to daven Kol Nidre in God's choir.
His wife Sandra, of 52 years, son Ari, daughter Brenlee (Ryan) his two grandsons, Jakob and Matthew, and cousin David (Hinda) Gruber said their goodbyes.
David was a well known member of the Jewish Community. A graduate of Maimonides College and a Past Master of The Grand Lodge for the Masonic Temple, music was a big part of David's life. He was a cantor for many years with the Beth Israel, Ashkenazi, and Bnay Abraham Synagogues. He will be truly missed by all who knew him in the business and accounting fields.
The funeral ceremony was officiated by Rabbi Avrom Altein. Pallbearers were: his grandson Jakob Novikoff, Michael Gruber, Jerome Avery, Mark Burgess, Doug Csuk and Errol Tapper.
Honorary Pallbearers were: Sheldon Earn, Allan Abosh, Arthur Gunn, Dr. Ted Lyons, SHeldon Stier, Cookie Shapera, Hardy Steiner and Jake Dethmers.
Thank you to the staff at the Health Sciences Centre, St. Boniface cancer care and the palliative staff at Riverview Health Centre. Thank you as well to all who extended their deepest sympathies and donated to different charities in David's name.
Rest in peace my love - until we meet again.
