I was very fortunate to work with Dave at the Bruce. He was a very knowledgeable gentleman who you couldn't help but like and respect. My thoughts are with the family at this time. Ken Coleman

Sorry to hear about Dave’s passing. He was a calm and easy going member of our inspection group in Darlington and our ball team. RIP Dave

Dave was truly one of the nicest people I have ever worked with. When we met working at Bruce Heavy Water we realized that we had the exact same start date with Ontario Hydro and joked about having to flip a coin if layoffs ever happened. He could count a crib hand faster than anyone I knew and loved his cheap sci-fi paperback novels.
My condolences to his family.

My condolences to your family. I worked with Dave at Bruce Power and found him to be always friendly and helpful and supportive in our interactions.
