David Andrew Mayer
April 7, 1945 – February 13, 2016
Passed away suddenly and peacefully at his home on Salt Spring Island. He leaves behind his brother Robert, Robert’s wife Veronica, his niece Karen, her husband Paul and his great niece Jorja all living in the U.K. He also leaves behind here on Salt Spring his devoted partner Sue, with whom he has taken many holidays and spent much time enjoying life on this beautiful island.
David was born in Bristol, U.K. attaining his Master of Science at Cranfield University and then emigrated to Canada in 1969 and became a Registered Professional Engineer in B.C. He spent his working life engaged in the forest industries of B.C. and spent time consulting internationally.
David retired to Salt Spring in 1999 as he loved the nature and simplicity of island life.
He will be sadly missed by all who knew him for his sense of humour, and many real, and not so real stories he told.
David requested that no service should be held.
