FLARITY, David - 76, passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, August 18, 2015.He was the beloved husband of 44 years of Irene, father of Geoffrey (wife Victoria), delighted grandfather of Roslyn; brother of John and Darcy (wife Cheri) and uncle to Aisling, Siobhan and Sinead. Raised on the family farm in St. Catharines Ontario by his parents Beverly and Verna, David was passionate about people, planting trees, and amateur (Ham) radio. He enjoyed interacting with people as both a travel agent and as a teacher, took great pleasure in watching the numerous trees he planted grow, and was proud to share his passion for Ham radio as a volunteer for the Red Cross and at a local retirement community. He was also known to build, fly and occasionally crash radio controlled model gliders. A celebration of David's life will be held at Grazi Cafe, 36 Vansickle Rd (at 4th Ave.), in St. Catharines on Saturday August 29th from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family asks you consider a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Parkinson Society of Canada.
I've known Dave for decades, first encountering him on the National Traffic System traffic nets, later using his travel expertise, and spending time on a few occasions in the "shack".
We'll all miss him, and please pass on belated condolences to all. Sincerely, Mike and Allison
Our thoughts and prayers are with you Reny and with the entire family.
