BAGLEY, Howard David



BAGLEY, Howard David

August 13, 1930 - January 5, 2024

Our beloved father, Howard David, passed away peacefully in Calgary, surrounded by his family and is now reunited with his late wife and soul mate Dorothy Patience. Their journey began when they met at the Ramblers Hiking Club hiking Norquay and Vermilion Lakes. There ventures expanded to include camping, gardening, reading poetry, hiking in Kananaskis and daily walks at the Glenmore Reservoir. Dave and Dorothy would greet everyone with a hello and a smile on these walks and many of those people became cherished friends.

David was born in Vancouver, BC and moved to Springbank as a child where he grew up on a farm. He graduated from Western Canada High School in Calgary. He completed his Masters of Petroleum Engineering at the University of Alberta and had a rewarding career in the Oil and Gas industry. He worked on many interesting projects all over the world including in Calgary, Houston, and Brazil.

David was a devoted family man. He was the loving father of six children Jonathan (Sheila), Frances (Bruce), Martin (Kim), Anne (Michael), Heather, and Rosina (Jay); and a cherished grandfather to twelve, Benjamin, Zachary, Sarah, Kyle, Sophie, Alexandra, Ella, Evan, Skylar, Aiden, Julia, and Linden. David had a meaningful impact on his family and will be forever remembered with gratitude and admiration. His kindness, patience and wisdom will be dearly missed.

May he rest in peace, surrounded by love and memories he created, leaving an enduring legacy in the hearts of those who had the privilege of calling him father, grandfather, and friend.
