It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of David Firth at the young age of 62. After a strong battle against Covid-19, Dave passed away peacefully at LHSC – Victoria Hospital, with his family by his side on Sunday, April 4, 2021.
Cherished father of Angela and Justin Fields, Corey Firth and Ashley Gallagher. Proud grandpa Dave of Hayley Fields. Deeply missed by his beloved dog, Roxette. A wonderful brother of Karen and her husband Brian Warner. Adored uncle of Andrew and Tooba and Lindsey. Fondly remembered by his aunt SheShe, aunt Margie, and cousins Butch, Jenn and their families. Predeceased by his parents John and Patricia (Wilson) Firth.
Dave was born and raised in Pointe Claire, Quebec. While on his journey in life, Dave touched the lives of many while residing throughout parts of Canada. Most notably Alberta and Ontario. Dave lived his life to the fullest. If he wasn’t with his family and friends holding a cold Bud Light, he could be found riding his Harley or traveling the countryside as a proud long-haul truck driver.
Keeping with Dave’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A time to celebrate his life and enjoy a cold BL will be held at a later date, when family and friends can safely gather together to share in a story and a laugh. Arrangements entrusted to Haskett Funeral Home, Exeter (519-235-1220).
Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Dave are asked to consider the LHSF-Covid 19 Response Fund or the Karnak Shriners in Montreal, QC.
The family wishes to offer their sincere appreciation to all the Doctors, nurses and staff in the CCTC at LHSC and those in the ICU at Stratford General Hospital.
