I was fortunate to have Dave as a friend. Our families moved to Calgary around the same time and Dave, Gord and I shared a lifetime of adventures throughout high school. The camaraderie of the fitness centre at Wisewood. Friday night burgers at the Scott’s and so many beers out-singing Waylon & Jerry Jeff. Bush parties ending too soon. Branding parties with Dan, Rick, Wade and Billy. Weekends swimming Fish Creek long before Lake Sikome. Parasailing at Kal Lake. Camping trips with "Pink Squirrels." Ice caving In Bragg Creek. Stampede keg parties at my parent’s farm. Cow chip throwing contests. Dave’s adventures with his horse Chico – stitches included. It was a rich and vibrant time. Too soon ended my friend. Rest easy until our next beer together.
What a shock. My deepest condolences to the Scott family. Dave and I were good friends beginning in high school and for many years afterwards. Although we fell out of touch over the past years I often thought of him and how he was doing. We shared many good times together: branding and gopher shooting at the farm in Irricana, movies with a 'large mushroom madness' pasta afterwards, engineering school, and both of my weddings. I can say with confidence I would not have passed engineering school without Dave's help. No one could outwork him, we spent hours on the phone discussing engineering problems and life in general. I hope good memories keep the family through these rough times. I will miss my friend.
