David Robin White - February 8 1936 - Novmber 2 2019.
David Robin White died suddenly at home on Nov 2 2019 with his loving wife by his side.
David was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend.
For over 60 years, he was Maraithe's beloved husband.
He was the loving, dedicated father to Sarah (Paul), Andrew (Suzanne), Richard (Kelli), and Alexandra (Lee).
He was Pops, the fun-loving grandfather to Meagan (Helder), Graham (Rhiannon), Aaron (Jeannine), Jocelyn, Duncan, Nathalie, Michael and Robby, and the enthusiastic great-grandfather to Oliver, Emmet, Jude, Ailbe, and Alfie.
He was a close friend and like a brother to Anne Aurelius. David also leaves behind his twin brother John (Pam) in England.
David was born in Fulham, England just before the war, and told stories of many childhood adventures during the London blitz as seen through the eyes of a free-spirited boy.
He emigrated to Canada with Maraithe and their first three children in 1967. David worked as a cartographer and draftsman for Proctor and Redfern for most of his career, and was well respected in his industry.
He made many great friends there, and maintained these friendships long after his retirement. David was an avid photographer, patiently waiting for the perfect picture of the birds he loved, often while holidaying in the beautiful countryside of England with Maraithe and Anne.
David could be counted on to assist anyone - family, friend or church, particularly in a construction project, and he was always happy with a tool in his hand. Whether it was a basement renovation, a dog shower, or building custom-made cupboards, all of our homes have touches of David’s handiwork.
He was a devoted Christian, and always an active member of the churches he attended, most recently Forest Brook Community Church. The Celebration of David's Life will be on Nov 22nd at Forest Brook Community Church.
The service will begin at 11:00 am followed by a reception lunch at the church.
In lieu of flowers the family is requesting donations to World Vision Canada.
