David John Breeze (1945-2018) passed away suddenly November 15, 2018. David will be greatly missed by his wife of almost 50 years, Chris (Kirsten) Breeze. His daughters Nicole and Kerry and his son, Shane will miss spending time with their dad. Champ, as named by his first grandchild, will be missed by his grandchildren Andrew, Braydon and Taylor and by his great grandchildren Brielle and Briar. He was a cherished father-in-law to Nicky and Rishi. He was a proud uncle to Danny, Dionne, Chantel and Rene Filiatrault and Jason, Jeff, Anthony and Jeremy Caddick. He was the son of Mary Breeze (nee Joyce) and John Breeze. He is predeceased by his parents and his sisters Molly and Marlene and his brother Lawrence. His dog, Windy, will sorely miss his constant companionship and the treats that were just as constant. Dave was a quiet but invested member of the Arden community with a reputation for lending a hand, providing advice and guidance or offering a few words of kindness and support. He will be remembered for his ability to fix anything and everything, his need to be productive and talent for creating projects. Every April he swore he wasn't going to make maple syrup and by the following spring he’d start tapping trees. Likewise, every September he planned to cut back on the garden, yet, every April he'd start cultivating the garden and getting it ready for the planting season. As a child Dave had a strong connection to nature, that connection grew stronger throughout his life. The family takes comfort knowing that he passed outdoors, doing what he loved. A memorial will be held on Saturday, November 24, 2018, 1:00-4:00pm with words of remembrance at 2pm at Gordon F. Tompkins Funeral Home – Township Chapel, 435 Davis Drive, Kingston. In lieu of flowers, donations to Heart and Stroke or Kingston Humane Society would be appreciated. Sharing memories online at
