David Shaun Schalk

Tragically on October 27, 2019, David passed away at Little Grand Rapids, Manitoba. He will be deeply missed by his parents, Alfred and Faye Schalk, his brother Dean and special friend, Breanne, together with his many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. David loved the rugged beauty of north-eastern Manitoba, and spent much of his time at Manigotagan with friends, Lee and Todd and their families, and his special group of friends.

David grew up on the family farm near Petersfield, attending school at Teulon. He learned many things while helping on the farm, but was especially interested in carpentry. He worked on many construction jobs before going into business for himself. He often worked for other contractors while continuing work on his own time. He was much appreciated by his many friends as he was always willing to help them out. He was most recently employed at Bree-Dan Construction Ltd.

David spent his adult life in Winnipeg. He loved to ride his Harley and enjoyed time visiting with various friends he met along the way. We all enjoyed his friendly smile, joking manner and easy-going ways.

As per David’s wishes, he has been cremated and a graveside service will be held with immediate family at a later date.

David was much loved by all who knew him and will live on in our hearts.
