February 6, 1944 - August 18, 2017
It is with great sadness we announce that David Welwood of High River, Alberta passed away on August 18, 2017 at the Foothills Hospital at the age of 73 years following a brief, fierce battle with illness. David is survived by his wife of 49 years Linda; daughter Jodi (Shaun) Conlin; grandchildren Logan, Rowan, Lachlan, Molly, Seamus; daughter Lori (Haralson); granddaughter Sophie; very special niece Lori Greig; in-laws David & Carolyn Turpie and nephew Cory (Deb) Turpie. David was predeceased by his parents John & Ruby Jackson, his brother Harold Welwood, in-laws Andy & Ena Turpie and nephew Jason Turpie. David was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he spent the first 27 years of his life before transferring to Alberta. He was in sales all his working life in fields of Flooring, Oil, Real Estate and Dental. He was an avid hockey player in his youth and fervent Blackhawks fan his whole life. David also enjoyed skiing and skating, coaching his daughters' baseball teams and playing golf with his wife in High River and Nanton. He was a steadfast dog lover and a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion. David's favourite hobby since retiring was his Harley Davidson, hitting the open road alone or with his Harley buddies at every opportunity. David was a fixture of the neighbourhood with constant cleaning, tinkering and modifying his Softail Custom in the garage, open for ready conversations with neighbours walking by and with an endless stash of treats for their dogs. Never one for half-measures, David is remembered for his zealous dedication to anything he saw fit to embrace, be it hobby, work or family. His friendly, booming voice was always quick with a story or joke and his frequent belly laughs could turn sour grapes sweet. At David’s request, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations can be made in David's name to Heaven Can Wait, P.O. Box 6131, High River, AB, T1V 1P7, www.heavencanwait.ca To send condolences and view David’s Tribute Page, please visit www.lylereeves.com.
