Obituary

DAVID C. HILL (published on March 24, 2009)

DAVID C. HILL With great sorrow we announce the loss of a son, a brother, and an uncle. David was born on April 30, 1943 in Winnipeg, the beloved son of Barbara and Ted Hill and a terrific brother to Michael (Shirley) and Bryan (Sandra). David moved with his family to Fort William, Ontario (Thunder Bay) where he received his education. Being a big guy he found high school football the best course he could take! After High School David had a number of careers . He worked locally in the concrete testing business before rejoining his family who had returned to Winnipeg. Always interested in variety and challenge David spent time in the camping supply industry (Coghlans), in shipping and receiving (Shoppers Drug Mart), then with Manitoba Poole Elevator where he learned the grading and weighing of grain. After a brief stint in the oil patch near Brooks, Alberta, he returned to Winnipeg and found employment in the heating and air conditioning parts business (Winnipeg Supply). But, David found the most satisfaction as a self-employed courier. This allowed him the freedom to move around the city, be his own boss and do very well! David could be found most summer weekends with his beloved Sam a gentle black lab, out in his boat or camping with family or spending some special times on Shoal Lake at Pioneer Camp with family. He amazed us with his remarkable memory of past family events and laughed a lot at his recollection of the details. David was a member of St. Margaret's Anglican Church and sang in the Choir for many years. Over the past few years David was a tremendous support to our Mother, always there to assist with her shopping or transportation needs. The past year was very hard on David as he fought determinedly a growing number of complicating health issues slowly lowering his quality of life. Through all of these he never stopped fighting and we will always remember the courage and resolution he had in his life. We will gather to remember David at Lindenwood Manor, 475 Lindenwood Dr. E, (Heritage Entrance), Thursday, March 26 at 3:00 p.m., with Reverend Jim Slater officiating. Please join us in celebrating his life. Flowers are gratefully declined but gifts in David's memory could be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society, 45 Hurst Way, Winnipeg, MB R3T 0R3.
