David Michael Burgess

February 20, 1967 - June 3, 2015


 Dave passed away peacefully on June 3, 2015 at the Cowichan District Hospital with his loving family by his side. Dave (Uncle Davey) was a risk-taker and lived life to the fullest. He possessed a generous spirit and was a friend to all. With his quick wit and sense of humour, Dave was always the life of the party.

Family and friends were important to Dave. He will be lovingly remembered by: his wife Joyce; his parents Mike and Sandy Burgess; his sisters Lesley (Steve), Jackie (Mark), Josie (Steve); his nephew Christopher and niece Margaret; his brothers-in-law John, Frank (Shelley); his niece Grace and nephew Kai and many other family and friends.           

 Joyce would like to thank the staff at the Cowichan District Hospital and Dr. Ibrahim for the wonderful care that they provided to Dave.
When you think of Dave, remember his jokes, his laughter and his love for life.  “…might as well face it you’re addicted to love.”
