Palmateer: David Charles.
Suddenly at his home, on Saturday July 24th, 2021. David Palmateer, in his 84th year, beloved father of Krista (David) Miller, Katherine (David) Waldock, and Jennifer (David) MacLachlan. Lovingly remembered by his grandchildren Drew, Bryce (Caterina), Katherine (Jose), Joel (Jen), John (Miranda) Emma, Michael, Keira, Sean, and his great-grandchildren Nico, Sadie, Iseult, and Jake. Dear brother of Annamary (D’Arcy) Kilham, Kathryn (Sam) Cureatz, Ron (Kathy) Palmateer, Dan Palmateer and Keith Palmateer. Fondly remembered by Mollie, and his nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
A life-long athlete, David enjoyed skiing above all, as well as cycling and golf. David inspired many young adults as a coach of high school and club ski racing – a role he thoroughly enjoyed. He was an avid canoeist and tripper, leading many trips in Algonquin Park.
Respecting David’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Donations in his memory to the Lung Association of Ontario would be appreciated by the family. Arrangements entrusted to the Rod Abrams Funeral Home, Tottenham, 905-936-3477. Condolences for the family may be left at www.RodAbramsFuneralHome.com.
