David Alexander Gowie

March 18, 1943 - December 30, 2020


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of David Gowie on December 30, 2020 at the age of 77.

He leaves behind his wife Wendy of 47 years, son Michael (Joy), daughter Erin (Kevin) and 3 grandsons, Dylan, Bryce and Dominic.

Also mourning his passing is his brother Gerry (Louise) and niece Shannon Michelle. David was predeceased by his parent Elizabeth and Duncan Gowie.

David grew up in Montreal and started working at the age of 10 delivering for the local drug store on his bike.

Later he worked as a night manager for a local service station and went to work for the T. Eaton company.

The family moved to Calgary in 1974 where he got work with Rosedale Linen Supply as a delivery driver. He later became a route supervisor.

The last move was to the Kootenays in 1981, where he worked for a local dry cleaner.

After the dry cleaners closed, David went to work in Castlegar for Maloney Pontiac as a lot man where he was able to enjoy his love of all things automotive.

His last job was as a custodian for the Castlegar School District, which he retired from in 2002.

In his retirement he loved puttering with his cars, visiting with the kids and spending time with his animals.

Many thanks to Dr. David Sonnichsen for this years of care, Dr. Malpass and staff and the staff at Mountain Lake Senior’s Home.
