David William Holden

June 30, 1953 - April 1, 2021


David William Holden, also known to many as ‘Liza’, 67, of Powell River, BC, passed away on April 1, 2021, from the effects of cancer.

David was born on June 30, 1953, to William and Dorothy in Powell River.

After school, David immediately kicked off a long 40+ years career in the local Powell River logging industry. He became a union representative for many years to support his colleagues.

In 1983, David married Brenda and they enjoyed 37 wonderful years together.

David had 4 children, Steven, Jeffrey, Jodi, and Ruth.

In his retirement years, David rekindled his passion for law and combined it with his logging industry experience, repurposing himself to advocate for his fellow man’s fair and adequate financial compensation for pensions and otherwise.

David fiercely loved his family and devoted virtually all of his time to activities his children/grandchildren were involved in, including: swimming, camping, coaching soccer, playgrounds, and hiking. One of his very last memories was sitting on a playground bench, contentedly smiling and watching his grandchildren play.

David was predeceased by his parents, William and Dorothy, and his brother Peter.

He is survived by his wife, Brenda; his siblings, Valerie and Sue; his children, Steven, Jeffrey, Jodi, and Ruth; and his grandchildren, Christian, Jamey, Saranna, Aliza, Chloe, Jeremy, Adira, Ezekiel, and Brandee.

If you feel inclined to donate in his memory, please do so to The Salvation Army as he held them in high regards.

In the future we will be having a Celebration of Life in his honor. If you would like to attend this event or have any memories you would like to share, please use one of the contact details below to request for more information.

“We’ll see you at Birdy Beach, Poppa.”
