David L. Oswald

It is with deep sadness we announce the sudden passing of David (Dave) Oswald on February 2nd, 2017.

He will truly be remembered for his wonderful sense of humour, great advice, as well as being a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. Dave was always a pillar to the family and was there for all of us when we needed help. Whether that was helpful advice, a home renovation, or just a few laughs. Dave was always there and he will be deeply missed.

From his many years working as a professional forester for the BC Forest Service, he was also an interesting man to talk to. He had great knowledge of the Nelson area that he called home, and for many years enjoyed hiking and skiing here with his family.

Dave is survived by his wife Cathie, daughter Andrea Jarman (Brian), grandsons Adam, Eric and Greg; his son Alex (Collette) and granddaughter Jaeda. He also leaves behind his sisters Diane Kirkbride (Brian), Carol Burns (Bill), Lorna Leinbach, his brother-in-law John Sinker, and many nieces and nephews and their families.

In accordance with Dave’s wishes, there will not be a service, a family gathering will be planned for later. In lieu of flowers, a donation to The Heart and Stroke Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
