David James Skelly

1930 – 2013

David James Skelly was a wonderful man! Sadly, he passed away on September 21, 2013. He was golfing, with his oldest friend, and parred the first hole at his beloved golf course (Hillview), then had to leave us suddenly. He left with grace and dignity with his family by his side.

Dave will always be remembered as a loving husband, brother, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend. He is survived by his wife, Lois, of nearly 60 years, three children: Sherry (Harvey), Pat (Bonnie), Heather (Gerry), seven grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, several other relatives, and many good friends.

In life, Dave had many great passions. He was an accomplished outdoorsman, athlete, wood worker, gardener, and dog owner. Everything he did in life was done to the best of his ability.

His stories (which became more embellished with each telling) will be lovingly remembered and retold by family members and friends for years to come. Dave was a notorious jokester and always looked at the positive side of life. He warmed our hearts, enriched our lives, and will be sadly missed.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

The family would like to thank the staff at Vernon Jubilee and Dr. Fred Dyck for the loving care they gave Dave.

There will be a celebration of life on Sunday, September 29th at the Enderby Senior Citizen’s Complex in Enderby from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
