WOODROFFE, DavidPosted: December 4th, 2020
1986 – 2020
David Alastair James Woodroffe, beloved husband of Jody Woodroffe, passed away at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Friday, November 27, 2020 at the age of 34 years.
David was born on August 12, 1986 in London, England and immigrated to Canada in 1992 with his parents and sister Katie. David worked for his father where he became qualified as a full-service financial advisor and insurance agent. On his dad’s retirement, David switched to a full-time insurance agent with AMA and received his Chartered Insurance Professional designation.
David was extremely intelligent and enjoyed any activities that challenged his mind. His many interests included chess, poker, and drumming. From the age of 12 when he arrived home from school he would say “Dad let’s play chess!”. Alan told David as soon as he was able to beat him, he would give David 10 dollars. David quickly earned that 10 dollars and was rarely ever beat again. He was passionate for soccer; he never missed a Tottenham Hotspur match. He inherited his father’s sense of humour and would always have a sharp-witted retort prepared.
Besides his wife Jody, David is survived by his parents; Alan and Ann; sister Katie; maternal grandmother Evelyn; in-laws Pat & Wayne; sister in law Lindsay (Jason) as well as many beloved nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
A Private Funeral Service will be held at 1:00pm, on Friday, December 4, 2020 at The Miz City Church. The family invites you to watch the Private Service via livestream at the Miz City Church webpage, https://www.mizcitychurch.com/.
In lieu of flowers the family is accepting memorial donations in David’s name to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada, 600 – 60 St. Clair Ave. East, Toronto, Ontario M4T 1N5, or AW Ministries (helping the poorest in the Philippines) through Bridges of Hope International, 2825 F 2 Ave. South, Lethbridge, Alberta T1J 0G8.

My sincere condolences to all Family of David. It was such a pleasure to work with him at AMA and I had the pleasure of sitting very close to him for many years. I really admired his work and the way he was able to professionally make every insured feel important and educated them to feel confident in AMA! David had a very good sense of humor that I also admired and enjoyed; and want you to know that he is deeply missed on our team.
Our memories of David are fond ones that comforts the hurt of loosing him and pray that you are also comforted by yours also.
God Bless You.
I was devastated to learn of David’s passing. David was a wonderful colleague and he was what we kept calling our “emerging star” as his professionalism, his natural leadership abilities, and his willingness to always try something new made him a fantastic person to work with.
I loved asking David about Jody because his eyes would light up when he talked about her and you could tell he really enjoyed their time together. I could tell that they had such a great time together and loved watching them laugh together.
I will cherish the time that I was able to get to know David will always remember him fondly. My deepest condolences go to his loved ones and friends.
