DAVIDS, David Edwards October 12, 1917 – June 11, 2017

On June 11, 2017 David “Dave” Davids passed away at the age of 99 years.

Dave was a multi-talented individual, distinguishing himself both as a musician and as a scientist.

He mustered out of the RCAF with the rank of Warrant Officer I. He continued his research career with Canada’s Defence Research Board at laboratories at Suffield, Alberta and Kingston, Ontario.

David is survived by his son, Cary Davids (Carol Gilbert) of Lisle, IL, daughter, Leslie Arkin (Talon Arkin) of Turkey, son, Lorne Davids (Peggy McKernan) of Edmonton; and daughter, Ellen Beck (Richard Beck) of Vancouver. He was predeceased by his loving wife of 54 years, Ruth Davids (Shragge)
