March 30, 1935 – Dec. 1, 2016

It is with sadness we announce the passing of our father, grandfather and brother following complications due to a stroke.

Dave was born in Kamsack, Saskatchewan and is survived by daughters, Karen (Giovanni) Porco of Maple Ridge, Brenda McCurrie of Qualicum Beach; son, David (Elly) McEachern of Toronto; grandchildren, Ryan, Evan, Lauren, Matthew and Cathryn; siblings, Beverly (Bill) Taylor, Evelyn (Gilbert) McNab, Sharon (Donald) Walker, Robert (Lynn) McEachern; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by Neil (Twila) McEachern.

Dave was member of the 1954 junior A baseball that won the Ontario championship. His team reunions were something he always looked forward to. Dave enjoyed hunting and fishing and was an active member in the Masonic Lodge recently receiving the distinction of Knight Commander of the Temple. He will be sadly missed.

A special thank you to the Millar family for all of their help and support.

In lieu of flowers, please consider honouring Dave’s memory by making a donation in his name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, 222 Queen St, Suite 1402, Ottawa, ON, K1P 5V9
