David Marr, loving father to Isobel Basi, step-father to Sarein Basi-Primeau, brother to Ken, uncle to Kevin (Olivia) and Kassy and a friend to all whose lives he touched, passed away on the morning of Tuesday, September 14 at the age of 68 after his courageous battle with cancer. He was pre-deceased by his granny Helen McNeil, mother Isobel, father Spencer, and sister Sandra Cooper.
“The mountains are calling and I must go”
David was a man of few words but expressed his heart and soul through his painting and raising his daughter. His love of nature took him on endless adventurous hikes and camping trips; there were always stories to share upon his return. His greatest joys were sharing nature with his daughter and taking deep pride in all of her successes.
David, we will miss you but we take comfort in the thought that your spirit is at peace now and you are climbing a mountain.
The family would like to express our appreciation to everyone involved with his care, particularly Dr. Forghani, at Victoria General Hospital and the Victoria Hospice in his final weeks.
There will be a private family service at David’s request. In lieu of flowers please donate to a charity whose mandate is to conserve and protect nature.
