David Oscar Drexhage

In Loving Memory (1961-2023) ~
David passed away on August 9, 2023. He is survived by his brothers Glenn, Alan, and John; sisters-in-law Twila, Nikk, and Natalie; nephews Johnny (and partner Catherine and son John Paul), Louis, Nathan (and partner Caitie), Ches, and niece Jaeda, and he rests in peace with his parents Geert and Siep.
He had an enthusiasm for life that was infectious and will be forever appreciated, marked by a keen sense of humour and a gentle soul. Dave loved nature, gardening, cooking, music, and animals of all kinds.
After obtaining his science degree, he worked in aquaculture for years. Subsequently, his contributions to helping those facing mental health and substance use challenges were enormous, reflecting the devils he contended with for many years himself.
A memorial service will be held later in the year, and his ashes will also be spread at Long Beach, which was a very special, spiritual place for Dave and one that he celebrated for years with friends and family.
