It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved husband and father at his home in Selkirk on Monday, October 22, 2012 at the age of 89.
He is predeceased by his sister Elaine Johnson and brother Eddie. He will be lovingly remembered by his loving wife of 57 years Anne (Pastushenko), daughters Tamara and Rena, his grandchildren Sacha and Ava Semenko-Farion and Ethan Stiglich, his brothers John and Larry (Sharon), and his sisters Irene Beers and Diane (Al) Loader. He also leaves to mourn his passing many nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives and friends.
He was born and raised in Sandhill, MB. After completing high school he served as a Sergeant in WWII overseas. After the war, he went to University of Manitoba and received his Bachelor of Pedagogy. He taught science and math for many years in the Selkirk area. After he retired in Selkirk, he went on to be a commissionaire at Lower Fort Garry.
David had a passion for history and astronomy. He was very proud of his whole family. He loved to read and was a very patriotic Canadian. He was a down to earth man and a minimalist.
As per David’s request, cremation has taken place and a private family service will take place in the future.
