John David Simmill 1928 – 2018
Dave Simmill passed away peacefully on October 5, 2018 in Chilliwack. BC at the age of 89. He is survived by his children Jim (Judy) Simmill of Chilliwack and Bev (Dwight) LaPeare of Rocky View, Alberta; five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Dave is predeceased by his wife Marjorie “Fergie”, his son, Keith, and parents, James and Maude Simmill.
Dave was an active volunteer in several organizations in the High River area as well as every town that he lived in before that and was always eager to help out wherever needed. Dave won several medals for swimming in the Senior Games and loved working with children in the Spitzee and Joe Clark Elementary Schools in High River. He lived life to the fullest and greeted each day with a smile and a twinkle in his eye. His sense of humor was a close second to his love of ice cream and wiener roasts. He will be forever missed.
A Funeral service will be held on Saturday October 13, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. at the Snodgrass Funeral Chapel, 301 Macleod Trail, High River.
