DAVID “Flash” SCHELLENBERG

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of David Schellenberg. Dave lost his battle with cancer on September 18th, 2008. He is survived by his wife of almost 56 years, Mary and children Geraldine (Bill), Shirley, Gary (Heather), Andrew (Judy), and grandchildren Eric (Jeanine), Chris, Karl, Lauren, Geoff, Isaac, Sarah, and siblings Peter, Sara, Lenora, Elmer and Joan. He was predeceased by his brothers George, Henry, Ed and sister Tina. Dave was born in Chilliwack on January 5, 1929. He married Mary Brandt on September 21, 1952 and settled in Langley where they raised their four children. In 1972 they moved to Kelowna where he worked in the automotive parts business until his retirement. He loved spending time going fishing with friends and family members. Catching fish was only a bonus as he loved the time spent talking with his fishing partners and enjoying many laughs out on the water. He will be greatly missed. A celebration of Dave’s life will be held on Saturday, October 4, 2008 at 2pm at Sunpointe Village, 700 Rutland Road North in Kelowna, BC. If you wish, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Central Okanagan Hospice House or the B.C. Cancer Foundation.
