After a courageous battle with cancer, David Allen Birchmore passed away on Tuesday, November 26, 2013, at the age of 82. Beloved husband of the late Molly Kathleen (Wild) Birchmore (2003). Loving father of Beth Anne Neil (David), Jeff Birchmore (Sylvain Cardinal), Jon Birchmore (Sandy Nicholas). As an only child, he was predeceased by his parents Wilfred and Beulah Birchmore, and is fondly remembered by his extended Wild family. Dave lived a full life. In his youth he was a pilot and OPP officer, then focused on technology in both his careers and free time. He was always up for learning something new. His warm sense of humour and zest for life will be deeply missed by all who knew him. A special thank you to the CCAC team and his amazing neighbours for enabling him to be at home, and to his friends for their support and care. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Dave’s life will be held on Saturday, November 30, 2013, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the SMITH FAMILY CENTRE (in front of Smith Funeral Home), 1576 London Line, Sarnia.
