Charles (David) Barker

Was born Oct. 5, 1947 in Victoria, B.C. to Nel and Frank Barker. Passed away Feb. 19, 2003 with his wife and sons always by his side.

Dave will be greatly missed by family and friends. Dave fought a courageous battle with M.S. for several years but was always able to still enjoy his news and programs on the radio, listen to his music and hear the news on TV. Dave has left a void already in his wife Barb and sons — Travis and Tim’s life!

Dave was predeceased by his dad, Frank Barker in June 1963. Dave will forever be missed and loved by his wife Barb and sons Travis and Tim, his grandson Trenton, his mother Nel Hughes, sister Joan (Bud), brother Joe (Marg), sister Pat (Walt), his aunt Mary Doell and all their extended families.

Barb, Travis and Tim would like to thank Dr. Hoy, all the nurses at Mills Memorial and the Dietician, for the excellent care in the hospital, in Dave’s final days of his life. Thanks so much to Pat & Walt, Joan & Bud, for making the trip up from Victoria and Manson’s Landing and for the love you guys showed Dave always. Thank You, also to my extended family, at my workplace, the Terrace Liquor Store, for all their support, love shown, food and help with anything provided.

Thank You to Sherry & Don Kirkby and Bob & Gail Compton for their friendship and visits you made while Dave was alive — He enjoyed them.

Donations in Dave’s memory, can be made to Terrace M.S. Society,

address in phone book.
