A celebration of DG Dave's life on April 24
A memorial service was held on April 24 -10am at the Delta Funeral Home and live streamed to allow family, Rotarians and friends to attend.
DG Dave Hamilton was admired and respected for his humour, friendliness, passion for helping others and thereby being a positive influence on all those lucky enough to have spent some time with him.  PDG Garry Shearer as Emcee for the Memorial, fondly recalled the early days of Rotary Club of Tsawwassen and Dave's guiding spirit. Dave's partner Tanya, spoke of his open and friendly nature, willing to help all that he could.  PDG Darcy Long expressed how much Dave inspired others and how he would always have time for anyone. 
The passing of Dave Hamilton will leave a vacuum in the world of service, to his Rotary Family and his friends, colleagues and immediate family.  Dave is not gone as long as we continue to remember him and carry on his passion for service.
