Grand, David John

It is with great sadness the family of David John Grand announce his passing on April 18, 2020 in his 84th year at the Chartwell Brant Centre, Burlington. Married to the love of his life, Mary Claire (née Smiley) for 59 years and loving and devoted father of Martin and Lisa (Bill) Wert. Cherished papa of Kellie, Victoria and Kyle and much-loved brother of Patricia (Don) Caco. Dave is survived by many nieces and nephews who remember him as their funny and cheerful Uncle and by the extended Smiley family. Dave was a dedicated employee of Royal Oak Dairy with 33 years of service. Super Dave was a hardworking, strong, loving and gentle family man who was a history buff, loved cooking, fishing on Commanda Lake and cheering for the Toronto Argos and Blue Jays. Enjoying afternoon tea and cookies with Claire at his side was a simple pleasure they shared together. Your love, patience, understanding, wisdom and amazing sense of humour will live on inside us all forever. Thank you to the LTC staff and volunteers who befriended Dave, cared for him and held his hand during tough times when his family couldn’t. We are grateful for your care and compassion. A private family service will be held followed by interment at Holy Sepulchre Catholic Cemetery, Burlington. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Dave to The Carpenter Hospice would be sincerely appreciated by the family.
️We love you, always have, always will ️

Uncle Dave made people laugh, and I have nothing but good memories of him. The world has lost a wonderful man.

I have many fond memories of Uncle Dave. The Sunday brunches after church, the bar-b-ques, the camping trip to Wawa, my dad and Uncle Dave competing every January to have the first bbq, Grey Cup parties, and the on going banter between his beloved Argos and the #1 Hamilton Tiger Cats. He was always glad to see you and took interest in what you were doing. He had such a great smile. This one's for you Uncle Dave. ARRRRRGOOOOOOOOS!

Dave was one of the good guys. He was a welcome addition to the Smiley family and friends.
He was always decent of heart. Thought of others first.
Condolences to the family.
