Obituary

David Keith Dolding
December 10, 1935 – November 3, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather and uncle. Dave passed away at the age of 85 at Neepawa Health Centre with family by his side.

Dave was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba before moving with his family to Kelwood where he grew up and went to school.

He held numerous careers in his life. Dave first started working for CN Railway before moving home to help out his father with the cream truck. He loved this job, and he eventually took over the business. During this time, Dave met and married the love of his life, Joyce Dolding (née Pelk) on October 8, 1966. After they married, Dave and Joyce moved to Neepawa where they started their family and had their sons, Marshall and Jonathon. Dave worked for Neepawa Co-op and then Neepawa Food Processors until his retirement in 1999.

Upon retirement, Dave enjoyed travelling to many places such as China and Hawaii. He loved to work at home in the garden and spend time with his family. Dave was known for his quick wit and being a jokester, which remained with him until the end. Throughout his life, Dave was a devoted member of Christ Lutheran Church, where he was a church elder for many years.

Dave is predeceased by his parents Nora and William Dolding, brother Bill (Sally) Dolding and infant brother. His memory will be kept alive by his wife of 55 wonderful years, Joyce; sons Marshall (Jeannette) and Jonathon (Tran Sin); grandchildren Clayton (Kayla), Dalton, Robyn and Harrison; nephew Robert; niece Patricia (and family) and numerous cousins!

Our family would like to thank Rev. Edmund Mielke for his prayers, care and compassion. Thank you to the doctors, nurses and staff at Neepawa Health Centre, with special thanks to Dr. Cram and Dr. Dangerfield, for their service and care shown to Dave and his family during his final weeks. We would also like to thank White’s Funeral Home for all their assistance.

A private service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Neepawa Christ Lutheran Church or Heart & Stroke Foundation Canada.

“Grandfather,
although you can’t be here with us,
we’re truly not apart.
Until the final breath we take,
you’ll be living in our hearts.”
