With much sadness, our family announces the passing of Dave, at age 34, on April 20, 2022 at the Hamilton General Hospital. He will be profoundly missed by his parents, Monica Slote and Michael Nakoneshny (Sharon Carr) and his siblings, Alexandria, Shawn, Zoё and Holly. Dave was a proud uncle to Zayne and Maci. Grandparents Dale and Helen Muttart and many aunts, uncles and cousins share the sadness of his loss. Dave is predeceased by his grandparents Mary (2011) and Edgar (1992) Legere, Lillian (2020) and Elmer (1987) Nakoneshny and uncle David (1981) Nakoneshny. Dave was born in Hamilton on January 4, 1988 to Monica and Michael. He graduated from St Thomas More Secondary School in 2006. He pursued his dream of becoming a mechanic, completed a Truck and Coach Technician (Diesel Mechanic) apprenticeship and worked in this role for 12 years. Dave will also be remembered for his ability to repair all types of recreational sport vehicles, riding trail bikes and his love of the outdoors. Cremation has taken place and internment will be at Resurrection Cemetery in Hamilton. For those who wish, memorial donations made in Dave’s name to a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family. We would like to thank the Hamilton General ICU staff for their compassion during Dave’s time in their care.
