David Gordon Lee

December 17, 1953 - December 5, 2023


David was born in Kingston, Ontario on Thursday, December 17, 1953, to mother Beverley and father Gordon Lee. Pre-deceased by parents and sister Donna and left to grieve, wife Lynda, sister Susan, sons Todd (Jade) and Rory, daughter Sarah, grandchildren Gabrielle, Rylend, Orson and Chloe, great aunties Lynn (Bryon), Taffy (Cameron), and Judy, man’s best friend Chief and many cousins and good friends.

Growing up in the Kingston Mills area David learned how to fish, hunt and be one with nature at a young age. Listening to far reaching radio stations at night with headphones and radio fashioned by his electrician dad, his love of music was embedded. Teaching himself to play guitar from songs on the radio and records was another of David’s first loves. Riding on the back of best friend Peter’s motorcycle on camping trips sealed the deal for David always having one of his own to ride throughout his lifetime.

Moving his young family and all possessions in a Jeep truck to Vancouver Island, Dave worked in forestry and at Doman’s then began fishing out of Cowichan Bay to support his family for many years. Following a few years mapping creeks and streams and restoring salmon habitat in the Cowichan water basin everything then went to the dogs. David loved every dog he met and they loved him back equally. Establishing a business to care for dogs when their owners were away was a rewarding life for Dave that gave him opportunity to play with dogs, play guitars, ride motorcycles and meet so many wonderful people. Kindness, generosity, loyalty and respect are the values he shared with everyone he encountered and he is sorely missed by many.

The family acknowledges with sincere appreciation the many comforting messages, prayers, and other expression of kindness that have been received during this difficult time. No service will be held. In David’s memory please consider making a donation to Diabetes Canada.
