Unrest in Ukraine led David’s family to immigrate when he was 5. After his father learned cheesemaking in Ontario, the family moved to Guernsey district, Sask. David helped on the farm. The family attended Philadelphia MB Church, Watrous, Sask., where David remained a faithful member throughout his adult life, teaching youth Sunday school and serving as church secretary. After David married Mary, they farmed together. David served as school trustee. He enjoyed soft ball, shinny hockey and billiards. David never missed Hockey Night in Canada nor the evening news. He readily discussed history, politics and current events. After Mary’s death to cancer, David remained on the farm, later joined by his son.
