In loving memory of David “Dave” Smith who passed away at Health Sciences North in Sudbury on Friday, July 28th, 2017 at the age of 78 years. Beloved husband of Melvina Smith (nee Downey) of Garson. Loving father of Rick Smith (wife Traicie) of Timmins and Donna Dube (husband Mike) of Sault Ste. Marie. Cherished grandfather of Melvina, David and Calen. He also leaves behind 9 great-grandchildren. Dave will also be sadly missed by his good friend Lydia of Sudbury. He was predeceased by his brother Harry (surviving wife Shirley of Sudbury) and his sisters Edna Thornton (husband Bill predeceased) and Bernie Boyd (surviving husband Doug of Sudbury). Dear uncle to several nieces and nephews and friend to so many. Dave was born in Kirkland Lake on January 9th, 1939 and raised in Sudbury. For 30 plus years, he worked as a mechanic for Pioneer Construction. In his healthier years, Dave enjoyed fishing and hunting and simply spending time in the great outdoors. You could often find him tinkering in his garage, which was one of his favourite pastimes. He will be remembered as a very kind and caring individual who loved being surrounded by his family, especially by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and as someone who was always willing to help anyone in need. In keeping with his wishes, there will be no visitation. Cremation at Lakeview Crematorium. Donations to the Lung Association, in Dave’s memory, would be greatly appreciated by his family. Arrangements in care of Simple Wishes of the North. (705) 470-7070
