October 28, 1915 – October 12, 2016

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 sister-in-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 were appreciated. A Celebration of David’s Life is to be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, October 29, 2016 at Providence’s Summerland Chapel, 13205 Rosedale Ave., Summerland, BC.
