DAVID HENRY CRAVEN (published on April 04, 2009)

DAVID HENRY CRAVEN Peacefully, at the United Mennonite Home in Vineland, Ontario, on March 31, 2009, in his 89th year. David was predeceased by his wife Irene in 2001. He will be fondly remembered by his sister Laura Mary (Don) Buckingham, of Perth, Ontario; his sons, Ron (Linda) of Qualicum Beach, BC and Ken (Lucy) of Grimsby, Ontario; grandsons, Glen, (Michelle) of Edmonton, Alberta and David of Grimsby; great-grand-children, Jenna and Jeremy of Edmonton; and nephews, Bruce (Wendy) of Kanata and Larry of Deep River, Ontario. David was born June 5, 1920 in Medicine Hat, Alberta and moved with his family to the Norwood area of Winnipeg at an early age. He served in the Royal Canadian Navy during the Second World War and married Irene Darling in 1941. After the war, he worked for National Drugs until his retirement in 1985, at which time he and Irene moved to Victoria, BC. There they enjoyed the company of many friends. They loved travel, especially to Hawaii. Following many years of good health on the Island, they moved in 2001 to the Niagara region of southern Ontario. David's family express their appreciation to the wonderful staff at the United Mennonite Home in Vineland, Ontario, where David lived for the past several years. David's passions included piano and organ, bridge, cribbage and fishing at Longbow Lake in northwestern Ontario. No funeral service at his request. In lieu of flowers, please remember The Heart and Stroke Foundation or your favourite charity. For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, And the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.
