Peacefully, Dave Thompson of Dunnottar, Manitoba, age 76 passed away on November 21, 2018 after a courageous battle against Alzheimers.

Dave was predeceased by his parents George and Mary Thompson, in-laws Jack and Daisy Geall,  son-in-law, Chuck Schau and his constant companion Cali, his dog.

Dave had a very successful career as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) and retired as IT Manager from Air Canada.

He was passionate about historical photography and proudly displayed his work.  He was a fluent writer of poems and stories.  Dave had such a compassionate heart towards others and always enjoyed his time with family and his wonderful friends.  He always was willing to listen or lend a helping hand to anyone in need.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Tyndall Building in Selkirk for all their special care they provided to Dave and our family.
