Fachnie, David Simon
September 30, 1936 – September 27, 2021
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our father and poppa after a long battle with illness.
Dad was born and raised in Glen Huron and although he built a home and raised a family in Creemore, he always felt “The Glen” was home.
After working for Hamilton Brothers in his formative years, Dad became one of the first licenced auto body technicians in the province and worked for Jerry’s Body Shop in Stayner for 35+ years.
David is predeceased by beloved wife Shirley (2013) and twin sons Jason & Joel and leaves behind 4 children: Jeffery (Cathy), Jerrod, Jill Anne (Mike) and Jed (Coralee), as well as 13 granddaughters and 1 grandson and 4 great grandchildren.
Quick with a smile and even quicker to laugh, Dad will be forever missed by all that knew and loved him; the loss we all feel is indescribable.
Finally at peace, he can now join Mom for a rest up on the hill.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to all the CCAC PSW’s who worked so tirelessly to keep Dad comfortable those last days and to Campbell House, Georgian Triangle Hospice and all the wonderful people who made his transition as smooth as possible. To simply say “thank you” doesn’t seem enough.
And finally, thank you to those of you who took time to call or stop by for a visit during his illness and to those who have reached out since; it has given us great comfort during this most difficult time. A private family service will be held. In lieu of flowers or cards, please donate to Hospice Georgian Triangle – Campbell House and/or the Canadian Cancer Society.
