HART, David Chauncey- aged 64, currently of Flatrock, NL, formerly of Port Dalhousie and St. Catharines, Ontario, quietly weighed anchor and set sail on March 8, 2007 from the Palliative Care Unit of the Leonard A. Miller Centre. He didn’t want to leave, but leaving was the better choice for him. We all wanted him to stay longer since we had not had nearly enough of him, but we couldn’t ask him to stay if it meant more suffering for him. In the end cancer won, but it had to fight for every ounce of life it stole from David.
David is loved and missed with an aching heart by his wife, kindred spirit, soul mate, sailing partner, and best friend, Patricia, who will always hold him close in her heart and memory. His daughters: Jennifer (Dave) in Worcestershire, England and Samantha (Aaron) in Jasper, Ontario have lost far too soon their dad whom they cherished. Jennifer and Samantha, and step-daughters Melanie (Doug) in Labrador City, NL and Michelle (Ann) in Toronto, ON now have an empty space in their lives, a space he filled with love and kindness and his own special uniqueness. David’s grandchildren: Eloira, Maggie, Caelam and Reilly David will never get to know Grandpa - Poppy - the way they would like to know him. They will feel his absence all their lives.
David is remembered with great love and tenderness by his special niece Gaye Hart Yachetti, by his niece Debbie Hart, by his old navy pal Lorne Sweetapple, and by his lifelong buddy and friend, John Richardson. His sister, Vivian Truesdale, has lost her dear baby brother. Numerous family members and friends, far too many to mention individually, in Newfoundland and Labrador, Ontario, Florida, North Carolina and around the world are sad that they can no longer have David in their lives. David was one of those rare spirits most people never get to meet.
Standing by in the next life to welcome David with open arms were his mom Georgie; his brothers Bob and Bill; and his good friend, Vern. We know they have lots of catching up to do, and they were his crew for this journey.
David’s family and friends will celebrate his life and honour his memory with a get-together (a ‘happy fizzy party’ to use David’s words), including music (Jimmy Buffet), stories, a few laughs and a few tears at home in Flatrock, exact time on Thursday, March 15 to be determined later. Anyone who cares about David and Patricia will be made welcome if they drop by to share in the memories.
The doctors, nurses, and staff of the Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre and the Leonard A. Miller Palliative Care Unit showed David tremendous kindness and caring throughout his illness. Donations in his memory to either centre or to the Canadian Cancer Society would make David very happy.
David has found a soft place to rest his weary head and aching body. He may be gone from our physical presence but we’ll know that whenever anything goofy happens that he is still with us. Rest easy, David. With the going out of the tide, float to a happier shore where there is no pain and where you can keep a guiding eye on us and all our follies.
Mo anam cara, we are all ‘star stuff’ and someday we’ll be together forever in the stars.
It’s my time to go now,
Haul away the anchor,
It’s my sailing time...
