Giesbrecht, David Allan

August 29 1963 – April 16, 2011
David passed away peacefully at Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice in Kamloops, BC. A devoted father and uncle, he will be sadly missed by his loving wife Marilyn, and their three beautiful daughters, Kaitlyn, Alana, and Shannon. Dave is also survived by his parents, Lawrence and Minnie Giesbrecht of Kamloops, his sister Lori (Peter) Bradstock, also of Kamloops, and his brother Geoff (Marie) Giesbrecht of Clearwater.
He will be missed by Marilyn’s parents, Rie and Ben Obdeyn, her brothers, Rodney (Kelly) Obdeyn and Jeff (Kim) Obdeyn, her sister, Cindy Obdeyn, as well as Dave’s nephews Adam, Erik, Jack, Nicholas, and Alexander and his nieces, Emily, Laura, Ceara, and Alyssa. Dave was predeceased by brother-in-law Bernie Obdeyn in 1991.
Dave was born in Neepawa, Manitoba but lived most of his life in Clearwater, BC. Many friends there have great memories of playing sports, or hunting and fishing with Dave.
In 1992, Dave married Marilyn Obdeyn and they moved to Kamloops where their children were born. Dave loved being a part of the many activities his girls were involved in, and, whatever they were doing; swimming, soccer, basketball or track and field, Dave was there cheering them on.
The highlights of his outdoor life were the hunting and fishing trips he enjoyed with his dad and brother, but he also shared his love and knowledge of travel, hiking, and gold panning with his children, nieces, nephews and their friends.
Friendship was one of the great pleasures of Dave’s life, and the family would like to thank the many wonderful people who shared their time and pastimes with them and with Dave. It was especially evident how much he was loved by the number of visitors who dropped by to visit while he was in hospital and hospice during the last two and a half months, and the many care packages and meals that would magically turn up at home.
A public viewing will take place at the Kamloops Funeral Home on Tuesday, April 19, 2011 from 2 to 5 pm. On that same day, prayers will be recited in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church on at 7pm. The Reverend Father Peter Nguyen will celebrate the Mass of Christian Burial in the church on Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at 11 am. Interment to follow, Hillside Cemetery.
Special thanks to the staff of the hospice for making Dave’s life and the lives of his family so much easier during the weeks he was there. The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Dave’s memory to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House, 72 Whiteshield Crescent, South, Kamloops, BC, V2E 2S9.
