David graduated from James Fowler High School, Calgary, Alta., in 1991. After a year at Columbia Bible College, Abbotsford, B.C., David studied art at the Alberta College of Art and Design, Calgary. He grew to love many outdoor activities such as cycling, hiking and snowshoeing. David worked at Mona Lisa Artists’ Materials, Quickdraw Animation Society and, most recently, at West Canadian Industries. As a child and young adult, David made important faith commitments and was baptized by his father. His family will remember his kind, loving demeanour. June 5, 2014, he told his family his plan to hike on June 7. Unfortunately, David slipped and had a fatal fall.
