The family of David Edward Willoughby Botting sadly
announce his passing at The Hamlets, Penticton B.C.
Born in Nelson, B.C. to Mary and George Botting, he will be
sorely missed by his loving son, Allan, daughter-in-law, Karen,
his grandsons and their families: Chris, Shawna, Sloane, Jade
and Finn; David, Krista, Connor and Logan; and Paul, Chrissy,
Zoe and Kora. He is also survived by his brother, Bill and sisterin-
law, Kathryn and will be missed by many family members
and friends who were an important part of his life.
David joined the RCAF in Victoria in 1939 and after serving
to 1945, he settled his family in Manitoba then moved
to Edmonton with Canadian Pacific Airlines, followed
by Richmond (Vancouver) until retirement. Settling in
Summerland in 1977 with Alyce and ‘Elinor’, he made many
good friends in the Vintage Car Club.
Thanks to Dr. Westby and the staff of The Hamlets for making
his last years comfortable and to Lorrie Rich whose attentions
