David Threlfall was a father, grandfather, partner, friend, educator, counsellor, and friendly face to many as he always had an open door and a warm smile. Gifted with a passion for helping people, he mentored people on his ideas around Quality Schools and Choice Theory. David loved travelling and having adventures, being on the water, enjoying the cabin with grandchildren, as well as coffee/beer chats, and times with family. In the last years of his life, David remained positive and ready for new adventures in the face of Alzheimer’s Disease.
He passed peacefully surrounded by the love of his family and friends. He is survived by daughters, Pamela (Rob, Victoria, Mathew, Sam) and Andrea (John, Ben, Amelia), his long time friend Ellen and wife Joanne. Thanks for the wonderful care at Carlton Gardens and especially for Ram!
All are welcome to the celebration of his life to be held 2 pm, February 1st, 2020 @ Shaughnessy Heights United Church.
In lieu of flowers please donate to First United Church Mission, Vancouver where David volunteered https://firstunited.ca/donate-one-time/ .
