Sept. 16, 1939 – Aug. 9, 2007
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, brother and grandfather, David. He lived his life with an incredible devotion to his family, his friends and his work life. David was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1939, the second of four children to Jim and Betty Fenn. David had a life long affection for all things mechanical. He owned a B/A gas station at the corner of Pembina and Osbourn in the 60s. In 1974, David moved his young family to Calgary to embark on a career in the bearing and transmission business that would last 30 years. Life eventually moved David and his cherished wife, Maureen to Mission, B.C. for his autumn years and there he and Maureen rediscovered the joy in the simple things they found together. He finished his career with Friesen Electric doing a job he loved, helping others.
David will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Maureen; sons Bradley and Cameron and their wives Kay and Christina; siblings Jim, Sally and John and their families; grandchildren Stephanie, Jordan, Zachary and Max, as well as, his extended Gyles family and his many friends and business associates.
A celebration of David’s life will be held at All Saints Anglican Church, 33077 – 2nd Ave, Mission B.C. on Thursday, August 16, 2007 at 11:00 AM.
