It is with a heavy heart that he passed away at Groves Memorial Hospital after a courageous battle with cancer. Dave was born in Guelph, also lived in Arthur/Fergus/Elora. He will be deeply missed by his son (Robert Purdy), grandchildren (Taylor and Natalya), brother (Walter Purdy), nephew (Ryan Purdy) and all the friends that shared THE GOOD TIMES. Dave will always be remembered for hosting never forgettable gatherings with many friends and some good music – always a good time. He was easy going and thinking of everyone else first, making sure they had fun. He enjoyed playing pool and betting on the horses, hockey games, and live music. Funeral and Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date due to Covid restrictions.
