He is survived by his wife Paula Barrett, and his two daughters, Kristy Reeve (Jim) of Quesnel and Trina Barrett from Crossfield Alberta. He also leaves behind two grandchildren – Vikki Gensorek (Cassie) of Fort Mac, AB, and Andrew Reeve, Quesnel.
David also had three brothers: he was pre-deceased by his brother Paul Barrett a number of years ago, and is survived by his brothers Jim Barrett from Vancouver and Mickey Barrett from Kirkland Lake Ontario.
David was much loved by his family: we had such good times together with lots of laughter. He was an uncomplicated man who let you know straight out where he stood: yet with such humor. He enjoyed all kind of sports; and was an excellent hockey player right up into his late 60s. His favorite pastime aside from hunting; was coffees at Granville’s with his friends and visiting with whomever he would meet on the streets of Quesnel. David was a kind hearted good natured man who spread smiles wherever he went...he was well liked and will be sadly missed.
His Celebration of Life is planned for Saturday, July 25th at 1:00 at New Life Church, 2244 Ash Avenue, Quesnel BC.
