Our deepest condolences to the Silverthorne family . Dave played Santa Claus for the Leslie family on many Christmas Eves and would bring his girls along also . Good memories. Dave was a good friend of my brother Dave. They were affectionately known as Dave and my other brother Dave.

Dave’s daughter I am so sorry to hear of your Dads passing. I have a lot of memories of him when I lived at Morgan’s Point.
Your Dad Mal and Dave Gibson had good times fishing and enjoying their Saturday’s breakfast. My prayers and thoughts are with you at this time.
Sincerely Diane

We offer our sincere sympathy to David's Family, remembering him going way back as a neighbor, and a regular at Concess's lunch counter, and more recently at Tim Horton's as a daily customer-- always a friendly 'Hello'
