In the early days I always admired the way Dave calmly handled driving Big Rigs around the Metropolis! He would not let the the pressure of time tables and dispatchers get to him! I don’t think he ever had an accident driving in that hot pot of stress! I still to this day try to follow Daves driving habits by not letting other people’s actions affect my own! I noticed he carried this calm demeanour while working as a bouncer at Goofys Bar diffusing drunk people’s disputes! I always thought highly of his abilities and am sorry to hear of his passing! Please accept my condolences!

Dave touched a lot us – from Viewlynn, Cedar V, Ant hill mobs days, thru Argyle, Lynn Canyon, Goofy’s, Sunday baseball beer daze, onto and thru BCRail, Dixon’s funeral, The Av, Roach, Lynn Wood and Big O rock sock ’em nites. I liked his take on North Van life, how he thought, how he resolved his unique philosphy . How many us are now thinking, recalling, relaying ‘not one or two unique stories about Dave’, but several. There was no one quite like him really – he was a union man, a fighter and ladies man, an athlete and a drinking buddy, a sure bet you’ll get out of ‘that out-town situation’ alive navigator. Good ol good time Dave, i was there when you earned your 2nd nick The Hammer – i was and am proud you hail from Lynn Valley ( we’ll meet again sir, – bottoms up )

deep prayers to your friends and family

From: Monique van Oord

My sincere condolences for the loss of a good man. Part of my journey as a proud “Lynn Valley Girl” was travelled with Dave aka Woody. My last encounter with Dave was an act of true kindness as he went out of his way to whole heartedly help and I hadn’t seen him in 20 years. But the years apart never breaks the tight bond many of us have growing up through good times and difficult times. You can’t replace that with anything. I wish I saw him more the last few years but Dave will always remain close to my heart. I’m going to miss you Dave.
