PETTIT, David Brian
(June 17, 1945-February 16, 2008)
With his wife Joan and daughter Karen by his side, Dave passed away peacefully in Ottawa on Saturday, February 16, 2008, two rich and adventurous years after being diagnosed with colon cancer. He was a loving, caring, and dedicated husband for more than 40 wonderful years, and a beloved father to Karen (Adam) and the late Mark. Dave was predeceased by his parents Sherwin and Lucy and was a loving brother of Mike, Keith, and the late John. He will be forever remembered by his two grandchildren, Alexander and Lindsay, who always made him smile. Dave's wisdom and guidance will always be treasured by his son-in-law, Adam. He will also be greatly missed by his many nieces, nephews, relatives and Friends. Following a career in finance with International Business Machines Corporation and Canada Post, Dave retired four years ago. His inner strength and the chemo treatment enabled Dave to continue to find the joys in life. He spent countless hours at the cottage and found pleasure in exploring new endeavours: touring in the RV which replaced their 140-year old log cabin, 'playing' with his lathe, and researching his family tree. He is remembered by all who knew him as kind, gentle, and hard-working. Friends are invited to visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod Street, Ottawa, on Wednesday, February 20 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A celebration of his life will be held at Rideau Park United Church, 2203 Alta Vista Drive on Thursday, February 21 at 11 a.m. Reception to follow in the church hall. Donations in Dave's memory to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre or a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family. Condolences/ Donations at: mcgarryfamily.ca 613-233-1143
