Dublin, Ireland, passed away peacefully on May 17, 2006 in Coquitlam, B.C.
An adventurous soul, Peggy traveled through Europe at a young age, and spent

years on Vancouver Island, Peggy and Noel relocated to Coquitlam in 2001.
Peggy endured numerous medical challenges, especially in her latter years,
but did so with courage, grace and an unrelenting faith and strength of
spirit that was a constant source of inspiration to her family and many
friends. In spite of her pain and discomfort, Peggy's sense of humour and
cheerful resolve touched all who were blessed enough to know her. Her family
would especially like to thank Dr. Matthew Choi and the wonderful and caring
staff at Dufferin Care Centre, whose infinite compassion and commitment to
Peggy's care was of great comfort to her, especially in her last days. Peggy

and mother, Margaret in 2005. She is survived by her loving husband Noel,

colleagues throughout his career by his eagerness to pursue innovative ideas
to successful conclusions and to undertake groundbreaking leadership
positions. His zest for life and passionate enjoyment of his hobbies and
interests - railroading and baseball, to name two - led to many lively
friendships. His love for his family was active, unconditional and
unrelenting. He is remembered as one who took his responsibilities
assiduously, pursued knowledge relentlessly and was generous in sharing his
thoughts. He was a loving father and a very proud Canadian who strongly
believed in giving back to this world that he so enjoyed. He died with
courage and dignity, and graciously donated his body to the University of

He began his own construction company at 21, worked for Corrections, and
then headed off to work in New Guinea for CUSO. Never one to miss an
opportunity, he experienced New Guinea as few others, trekking to ceremonies
in remote locations, conquering mountains and exploring the culture. When it
was time to return home, he and his friend, Ted Murray, outfitted Tiki, a 20
1/2-foot replica of John Guzzwells sailboat Trekka to sail from New Guinea
to Victoria. David moved to Quadra Island where Sam Hooley hired him as a
construction worker. So began David's love affair with a place that he
considered heaven on earth. He later opened Discovery Islands Realty and, in
so doing, coined the term Discovery Islands. His enthusiasm, sense of
adventure and love of life were infectious. He enjoyed a challenge and
inspired his family to look at life as a journey that offered a banquet of
opportunities. He hiked, biked, snowboarded, rock climbed, boated and
traveled. David made the most of every minute and was ever ready to share
that enthusiasm with others. There was always room for Val and AJ's friends
to join in whenever an opportunity presented itself. David's family and
friends were his greatest passion. In lieu of flowers, please make a

held at the Quadra Community Center on June 2 at 2 pm.
