David Friesen

February 3, 1926 - April 30, 2016


Dave Friesen passed away April 30th, 2016 in the Mission Hospital. Born Feb 3, 1926 in Aberdeen, Saskatchewan, he was the second eldest of 6 siblings. As a teen, his family moved from the prairies to BC and finally settled in Mission. Dave celebrated 67 years of marriage to Erna. She passed just over two years ago and despite many friends, it has been a lonely time. He is survived by his sister Sarah Bueckert, his children; Victor (Jo-Anne), Stanley (Lois), Judy (Walter) Wall, Joanne (Gordon) Yard. Dave is blessed with 11 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren. Dave was a good provider for his family. He worked in forestry (shake splitter, logger, faller, skidder operator) mostly in the Stave Lake area. It was very important to Dave to give back to his community. He achieved a lifetime membership in the Lions Club for his many years of service. When he was no longer able to keep up with Lions activities, he volunteered at the MCC. In his golden years, Dave’s favourite hobby was fishing. He made a multitude of trips to Howard Lake with friends and family. In more recent years, he spent countless hours playing crib and socializing with other seniors. A service to celebrate his life and legacy will be held May 6th 2:00pm at Cedar Valley Mennonite Church. There will be a reception to follow at the church.

Dave, we shared a birthday, and we shared many fun times with the Lions Club. I am so happy we were able to have lunch together on our last birthday, although I remember you used to delight in telling everybody I was so much older than you. I also enjoyed our dinners together with our spouses. Erna’s birthday was one day before my husbands. I’m hoping you are at peace with your beloved Erna. You will be missed by many people.
