1937 ~ RICHARD “DICK” DAVIES ~ 2021Posted: May 13th, 2021
The family of Dick Davies is sad to announce his passing on Monday, May 10, 2021 at the age of 84 years, after a courageous battle with Multiple Myeloma cancer. Dick was born in Redcliff, AB on February 27, 1937 where he was surrounded by his aunts, uncles and cousins. Dick is survived by his wife of 62 years, Garda Davies. He will be missed by his children, Donna (Humphrey) van Eerde, Glenn (Julie) Davies, Cheryl (Doug) Bader and Carol (Gordon) Charlebois; grandchildren, David and Kevin van Eerde, Max Davies, Justin (Ashley) Bader, Curtis (Shelly) Bader, Michael Charlebois; step-grandsons, Paul (Jenn) Charlebois and David (Carrie) Charlebois; sister, Gloria Keats; brother-in-law, Jim (Bernie) Tennant, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Dick was predeceased by his parents, Richard and Ivy (Podesta) Davies; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Alec and Donna Tennant. Dick spent many hours, months and years walking the course of MHGCC while trying to perfect his golf game. Along the way he formed many great friends, made lots of memories and had a ton of fun. He was able to keep the friends but never quite perfected his game. He thanks those who shared that journey. Dick was a lifelong Toronto Maple Leafs fan and was happy to see this year’s team at the top of the standings. The family would like to express their thanks to the doctors, nurses and the staff for their compassionate care during Dick’s stay at St. Joseph Carmel Hospice. Dick called them his angels, which they were. In addition the family thanks the doctors and staff of the Margery Yuill Cancer Center and the Tom Baker Cancer Center.
