Dave Adams

1936 - 2018

The family is sad to announce the passing of Dave Adams of Paris, formerly of Red Bay, on Friday February 16, 2018. Dave is predeceased by his wife and best friend Connie in 2014. Dear father of Douglas (Tammy), Dan, and Chris (Erin). Grampa will be forever remembered by his grandchildren Aaron, Amber, Crystal, Jill, Stephanie, Rachel, Caroline, and Julia. Very proud great-grampa of Nash, Layla, and Tayla. Dave was also predeceased by his parents, Reg and Edith of Paris; and his sister, Betty. Dave had, in his own words, "a great life". He was one of Canada's youngest solo pilots, having flown his first solo flight at the age of 12. He enjoyed a lifelong interest in cars, and was a founding member of the Brantford Piston Pushers. He spent his entire career as a truck driver and retired to Red Bay in 1999. Dave and Connie enjoyed a long and busy retirement in the cottage that they built by their own hand. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff of Telfer Place LTC, of Paris, for their wonderful loving care of Dave for almost four years. The family would like to invite friends to gather with them at Red Bay Cemetery for a graveside service on Monday May 28, 2018 at 11 o’clock. A luncheon will be held at the Thomas C. Whitcroft Peninsula Chapel, 272 Berford St., Wiarton, following the interment. Donations to the Alzheimer Society Grey Bruce would be appreciated.

It has been our honour to serve this family
