June 8, 1937 – January 20, 2015
Dave was the son of the late Joe and Margaret Ridsdale and brother to the late Marie Faint. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Doreen and son David (Taeko) and daughter Christine Desautels (Gord Davis). Dave will also be missed by his grandchildren Kaytlyn and Jeffery Desautels.
Dave and Doreen met in 1957 in the St. Andrew’s Cathedral Choir. Dave’s passions in life were family and friends. He loved to sing and had been a member of the Prince Rupert Community Choir for more than 40 years. He enjoyed many social activities at the Seniors Centre and participated in carpet bowling at the BC Senior games for several years. Dave was most at home in the outdoors. He loved to fish and spend time at the cabin. Dave worked at the pulp mill as a supervisor in the wood room for 40 years.
Dave’s woodworking talents will be a constant reminder to those who knew him with the chapel altar and pews he built along with many other articles and pieces of furniture.
