It is with the most profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of David James Treloar on Saturday March 26, 2011.

David was born in Rockhampton, Australia on March 8, 1973. At three months of age, his parents brought him home to Vancouver and introduced him to his large extended family.

When David was eight, his family moved from Port Moody to Abbotsford where David attended school till his graduation from Abbotsford Senior Secondary in 1991. David was a proud member of the Abby Panthers basketball team and the Abbotsford Whalers Swim Club. David received his BHKIN and BEd from UBC and worked as head lifeguard at the University Aquatic Centre. David taught in Vancouver where he coached basketball teams at Windermere, and this past year at Kitsilano Secondary.

In 1999 David married Laura Austin and started the family that became the centre of his life. David was a proud and loving father and spent hours at the hockey rink or baseball diamond, supporting his children in their various activities.

David leaves a great gap in the life of his wife, Laura Treloar (nee Austin), his three children, Austin, 6, Michaelie, 5 and Aiden, 3. Also mourning the loss of David is his father, D.
