He was born on April 25th, 1939 to John and Katrina Harris, in Endeavour, Saskatchewan, the youngest of 11 children. He leaves behind his two siblings, Olie Harris of Meadow Lake, SK and Lena Ticehurst of Port Coquitlam, BC. After growing up in rural Saskatchewan, he travelled to Winnipeg to work on the Red River Floodway, and met the love of his life, Anne Tasker Alexander. They were married on May 27th, 1966 and made their way to Alberta to begin their family. Their children, Dawn Katherine and John David, were born shortly after they settled in Calgary. After finishing his post- secondary schooling at SAIT, Dave began working as a heavy-duty mechanic for Ferguson Supply. In 1979, he moved his family to Medicine Hat, where he stayed until his final days. His career was completed as shop supervisor for the M.D. of Cypress. He loved Medicine Hat, and became involved with several charity men’s groups such as the Moose and ACT, always thinking of those in need. David was an avid sports fan, if he wasn’t curling or golfing, he was cheering on his favorite teams, especially his beloved Flames and Stampeders. Dave and Anne loved to travel in recent years, making new and special friends along the way. David leaves behind his wife, son, and daughter; as well as son-in-law, Frank; and grandchildren, Drew, Keath, Callan, and Taytan.
