David Wyatt

May 23, 1930 - April 13, 2015


Dave was born May 23rd, 1930 in Brixham, Devon, England to parents, John and Annie Wyatt. He was the youngest of seven children. Dave joined the Royal Air Force in 1948, married Joyce and their son Paul was born in 1950. In 1952, Dave emigrated to Canada with his young family and settled in Oshawa, Ontario where he worked as a Shop Forman for General Motors and a subsidiary for over 30 years. In 1987, Dave retired and moved to Nakusp to be closer to his son and grandchildren.

Dave met and fell in love with Shirley Cameron in 1989 and they married April 7th, 1990. They spent the next 25 years happily and busily involved with many activities and organizations in and around the community, including the Legion, Seniors, and their Church as well as golfing, camping and fishing.

Dave was predeceased by his parents, two sisters and three brothers.

Dave is survived by his loving wife, Shirley, his sister, Margaret, his son Paul (Brenda), his two granddaughters, Corinn and Erin, his great-grandson, James, and many nieces and nephews as well as three step-sons, Larry (Lila), Jim (Virginia), Bob (Renee), two step-daughters, Jo-anne (Terry), Marie (Ernie), 17 step-grandchildren and 24 step-great-grandchildren.

Dave will be sadly missed by his wife, family and friends.

From: Ian and Gloria Johns
Relation: Uncle

Our deepest sympathy to Shirley , Paul and family. Uncle Dave and Ian worked in Houdaille Industries and played golf, fished and played hockey together. Ian remembers Christmas get-to gathers, when they built house and cottages. Uncle Dave was the first person to take to Ian a drive-in. At one time Uncle Dave lived just down the street. And we spend a lot of time together at his cottage on Balsom Lake. At this time it is impossible to attend the funeral. Blessings. Ian and Gloria.

From: Miriam (Johns) and Herb Terry and family
Relation: Niece

Uncle Dave was my mother’s youngest brother and I remember him for his British accent (which I never noticed in my own Mom) and his quick smile which was much like Mom’s. I was quite young when he and Paul lived on Jane Avenue in Oshawa but I remember him frequently dropping into the house for tea with Mom. His happiness seemed greatest though when he met and married Shirley and although his health was recently compromised I’m sure she made the past 25 years wonderful. Condolences to Shirley, Paul and their families.
