November 11, 1933 – January 24, 2020
It is with great sadness that the family of David James Harry Dunnison announces his passing on Friday, January 24th, 2020, at the age of 86. After years of bravely fighting illness, David passed peacefully in his sleep at the Brock Fahrni Pavilion in Vancouver, B.C.
Beloved teacher, father and grandfather, with a commanding baritone, a love of conversation and an infectious sparkle in his eye, David was larger than life and lived an exceptionally rich one.
He is survived by his sons David and James, his daughters-in-law Alexandra Dunnison and Day Helesic, his grandchildren Ryan, Spencer and Ava, and his sisters Grace Malpas and Vi Soward.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, 7 February 2020, at Valley View Funeral Home, 14644 72nd Avenue, Surrey, BC.
The service will be at 2 pm, with a reception to follow until 5 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests sending memorial contributions in support of Brock Fahrni through the Tapestry Foundation for Health Care.
