David Robert Pearson

May 9, 1958 - July 20, 2017


Gone Golfing…Sadly.

Dave slipped away on July 20, 2017, at the age of 59 after a battle with melanoma. He lived a big life that was rich in family and friends. He was taken too soon and will be in our hearts forever.

Born a Calgarian, Dave moved to BC at the age of nine with his mom and brother. He spent his first years in Burnaby and Vancouver, then moved to Chilliwack for his high school years. From there his work as  a parts person took him to Campbell River, then Powell River, where he settled and considered home.

Along the way Dave met many amazing people: family, friends, colleagues and customers. He loved sports, loud cars and trucks, the outdoors and new adventures, whether it was on a long-distance bike trip, in a boat, school bus, vehicle or motorbike, on the golf course or a sports field, in a hockey arena, at work or in front of his television, he was always ready, willing and able.

Dave married once before he met Linda and the boys in 1994, when his life was forever changed and a new series of adventures began. He became an instant family man, welcoming the challenge, and he never looked back.

Dave left behind Linda Wightman and the sons they raised: Torey (Sydney) and Stevie (Katelin) Wightman and the newest member of the family, granddaughter Aoife Wightman. He also leaves behind his mother Gloria Lawson, brother Rick (Diane) Pearson, fathers-in-law Andy Byrne and Harold Wightman, sisters and brothers-in-law Val (Brent) Rothwell, Sandra (Rob) Stewart and Pam (Dan) Iwasiuk, nieces and nephews Kris, Mike, Nicki and Kaity and their families, Kevin, Amanda and Amy and Powell River cousins Albert (Shelley) Randle and Pam (Ray) Dube and families.

Dave was predeceased by Mary Byrne and Beryl Wightman.

A celebration of life will be held from 2-5 pm on Saturday, September 9, at Dwight Hall, 6274 Walnut Street.

I am very sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. I was a business colleague and friend with many great memories of calling on Dave at Aero Services. Many fond memories of seeing Dave at various industry events in Banff, Toronto and Quebec City. He was always a gentlemen to me and always had a great time together. He always had the early morning coffee on at the shop and always welcoming. I will miss you my friend and prayers are with the family.
