David Rory Sussums

It is with deep sorrow the Sussums family (Don, Donna, Laura and Dan) announce the passing of their beloved son and brother. Dave touched many in his 29 years. His unfaltering courage and dignity while battling cancer was a testament to his bright spirit. His ever-present smile and unquestionable love for those in his life will be forever remembered. He leaves behind great memories and a reminder to live, laugh and love as best you can. He will be sadly missed by family and friends too many to mention, and the love of his life, Tara, who never left his side.

A celebration of life was held at FOSTER’S GARDEN CHAPEL in Calgary, Alberta on June 12, 2011. There will be an additional celebration held in Crawford Bay, B.C. on July 23, 2011. (Please email sussumsservice@yahoo.ca for information) Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.fostersgardenchapel.ca . In lieu of flowers, Dave’s request was for donations of blood, or contributions to any of the following organizations:
