It is with the greatest sadness that our family announces the unexpected death of David William Regehr in Vernon, B.C. on June 22, 2015 at the age of 55.
David is survived by his parents Florence and William Regehr of Winnipeg; his wife Beth Regehr; his children, Brydan and Sara Regehr; his sister Carol Pollack (Farley); niece, Kristen Spiers (Adam); and their daughter, Harper. He was predeceased by his son, James Christian Regher who passed away at four months in 1990.
David was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on Feb. 28, 1960. He graduated from the University of Manitoba Dental School in 1983, then moved to Jasper where he practised at the Jasper Dental Clinic until 2000. This is where he fell in love with the mountains and became an avid sportsman and a devoted father. He moved to Vernon with his family in 2000 where he bought a dental practice. He was a compassionate dentist and valued his dental team both in Jasper and Vernon.
David excelled in many sports. During the winter months he enjoyed cross-country and downhill skiing at Silver Star. As soon as the snow melted he was on his bike, rock climbing or kite boarding. He was a devoted family man and passed on his love of sports to his children. A perfect day for David was spending it outdoors with his family and friends. His family all had a passion for travelling and enjoyed exploring new countries together.
Charity and mission work were important to David. He had a passion for helping those in need and volunteered in Jamaica, Mexico, St. Lucia, Peru, and Fiji.
He will be deeply missed by his family, friends and all who knew him.
A funeral service will be held at the Vernon Alliance Church, 2601-43 Ave. at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 27, 2015.
