David Gerald Katz November 6, 1965 – March 10, 2023

We would like to let family and friends know that David – husband, father, brother and uncle – died unexpectedly on March 10, 2023. We are all completely heartbroken and truly devasted by the loss of this amazing man.
David was an incredibly compassionate, considerate and gentle person. He was very much like his own father Ben (Zaida). As a young child, David was introspective and kind. David was happiest when he met and married his strong and nurturing wife Linda and was overjoyed when he became a dad to their daughter Ava. David was an incredibly attentive and loving father. From the day Ava was born, he doted on her and cared for her with his entire heart. The two of them share an amazing bond, and he wanted nothing more than for her to be happy. He was an exceptionally patient dad who would move mountains for his family.
David or “Uncle DG” as he was known to his nieces Talia and Hannah, was an involved and caring uncle. He attended every special event and was present to celebrate every milestone. When Talia and Hannah’s own dad Tom died in 2007, David was an essential figure, providing unconditional love and support to Talia, Hannah, and their mother, Ilana. Ilana always looked up to her older brother and they were deeply connected since childhood. Rarely a day went by without several phone calls to one another.
David began working at a very young age and throughout university often had two or more jobs. He worked for the government for over 25 years and was a loyal and hardworking employee. He loved to travel and prior to becoming a father, he took many trips to Europe (sending postcards from every location). He travelled with his family to China and took them on many adventures across North America.
David was incredibly generous with his heart and his time, first to offer to help others in all types of situations. He was nonjudgmental and accepting and those who knew him loved him dearly. He was quiet and thoughtful in his conversations, and also playful and witty with family and close friends.
David has many people who loved and cared for him especially his wife Linda, daughter Ava, sister Ilana, brother Roni, and nieces Talia, Hannah, and Naomi. He will also be missed by many extended family members. David had long term friendships and was especially connected to his best friend Nish. David was very close to his father Ben, mother Avivah and brother in law Tom, and he honored their memories throughout his life.
We know that David would never want any of us to suffer on his account and we are mindful of this as we mourn this profound loss. We cannot imagine the world without David, and will hold his kind, generous, and loving energy with us as we navigate the days ahead.
