It’s with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our beloved father and husband David Weston Frederick Earle on August 25, 2020. Born Oct 26, 1943 in St John’s Nfld and passing away peacefully on the Gold Coast, Qld Australia.

For those of you who had the privilege to know David, you know we’ve lost a one of a kind man. His love for his family and friends was immense and as the sensitive man he was, he always made sure you knew exactly how much he loved you.
He married Beverley, the love of his life in September of 1972 and welcomed two daughters a few years later. It was then that the “adventures of the Earle family” began.
And what an adventure it was!!
Whether it was on the golf course, on the curling rink, a family vacation or a Christmas Eve at the Earle’s house, we all have a story that starts with “remember when Dave…”
Spending most of his life raising a family in Essex, Ontario, David and Beverley retired to the
Gold Coast of Australia to be close to their grandchildren he loved so dearly. Now his grandchildren Cooper and Brody have a million of their own stories that start with “remember when Pamma…?
His intelligence and wit made him a great man to sit down and have a conversation with. His silliness and yearning to make people laugh always had him performing some type of magic trick, in which he always showed you how it was done.

David leaves behind his wife Beverley, his two daughters Sarah and her partner Brad, Erin and her husband Gary and his two grandchildren Cooper and Brody. While we are heartbroken, we are comforted by all the memories we shared in our amazing lives together.
In lieu of flowers we ask that a donation be made to your local chapter of the Alzheimer’s and Dementia Society in David’s honour.
