David Lorne Mannington

March 2, 1945 ~ June 15, 2017 (age 72)
It is with sad hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Dave Mannington, age 72, on Thursday, June 15, 2017 after a short but courageous fight with cancer. Dave was born in Wales; grew up in the Coaldale area of Alberta; and spent most of his adult life in Calgary. He was a kind, honest and gentle soul who loved his family and always treated people fairly. He had a passion for the outdoors - running, hiking, backpacking, camping, scuba diving - and spent countless hours walking urban trails with his best friend Goldie. Dave will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 52 years, Goldie; daughter Paula (Denis); son Perry; two grandsons, Merrick and Delano; sisters-in-law Claudia (Bob), and Kathy; brother-in-law Gerald (Char); step-brothers Doug (Thelma), Duane (Pat), and Ray as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and dear friends. He is predeceased by his parents, Jeanetta and Eric; brother Bob; Grandma Hunter, brother-in-law Clem, and step-sister Lorna. Dave will be deeply missed by all he knew and touched. A Celebration of Dave's Life will take place on a later date. Photos, memories and condolences may be shared with Dave's family through www.evanjstrong.com. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made to The Salvation Army Agape Hospice, 1302-8th Avenue NW, Calgary, T2N 1B8. The family wish to thank the staff on Unit 38 at the Peter Lougheed Centre as well as the Agape Hospice for their care and compassion during the last few months. Arrangements in care of EVAN J.
