To the Bachly Family, I am very sorry to hear of Dave’s passing as he and Marilyn were wonderful people. We met at the Barrie Jazz Society functions and loved to watch Dave and Marilyn dance. They loved to watch me and my husband Eddie dance! Dave would often visit me at Barrie City Hall where I worked for many years. Dave attended Hearings there as he would chair our Rent Review Board Hearings. Brilliant man David was and very kind. He truly missed his wife Marilyn when she passed away, way too soon! I am sure they are dancing up in heaven now to their Jazz tunes! Rest in Peace David
Warm regards, Debbie and Eddie Ing

I am so sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. He was a dear man who spread smiles around the neighbourhood with his daily golf cart tours. He and my father George were good friends and Dave always made a point to remember my dad when he saw me and would always say something kind about him. He has left many legacies but his creation of a new community in Moonstone is just one of his visions completed. He will be missed in the neighbourhood. Our thoughts are with his family.
Sincerely, Janice Steponas ( nee Bartnicki) and family.

He was a wonderful man and friend to all. He was a very special friend to my father George Bartnicki. They were strong supports to each other.
