August 5, 1958 – January 2, 2019
It is with heavy hearts the family announces the passing of David Rene Carriere at the St. Boniface Hospital on Wednesday, January 2, 2019.
David was predeceased by his mother Betty; brother Brian and sister-in-law Valerie.
David will be sadly missed by his daughter Rebecca (Josh); father Denis (“Danny”); brothers Denis (Diane) and Michel; sister-in-law Pauline; sister Charlene (Joe R) along with many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and Lucy.
David loved his daughter Becca and was proud of all of her achievements; always looking forward to her future success. The smile he had when she walked in the room was pure love for his “number one girl”.
David was born in Digby, Nova Scotia and moved to Winnipeg when he was young. He grew up and remained in Winnipeg until his passing. David worked for the Winnipeg Regional Health Services for over 25 years and he truly enjoyed his work. He was very compassionate about the people he worked with, often collecting and sharing items needed for his clientele.
David loved to laugh and had a great sense of humour. He was also a collector and took pleasure in his finds with his family. He loved music and spent many hours creating playlists for family functions. He shared his love of music with his daughter and many nieces and nephews, instilling in them the love for old rock. A family event was not complete without David, his music and his jokes. While the family hearts are filled with sadness, they know he has merely “Gone treasure hunting”.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, at 1:00 p.m., in the chapel of Voyage Funeral Home, 220 Hespeler Ave at Henderson Highway.
