Obituary for David Finney

Finney, David (Murray Wayne) – Passed away peacefully with his loving family by his side on Friday, January 7, 2022 at the age of 75. Son of the late Murray and Lena Marion (née Stinson) and Marion (née Pogue). Devoted Husband of 45 years to Anne (née McDowell). Loving Father to Neil (Chy-Anne), Kevin (Kelly) and Heather (Jay). Dear Grandpa of Liam, Bryce, Bella, Emma, Britton and Beckett. He is also remembered by his sister, Bonnie, Robert (brother-in-law), Andrea (niece) and James (nephew).

Dave graduated from Queen’s University in 1971 with a degree in Commerce, and later, acquired a designation as a Certified Management Accountant. He began his family in 1977 while working for Canadian General Electric in Revelstoke, British Columbia. He retired in 2012 after a career as a Manager of Finance at Viskase Canada Inc. (Lindsay) and Coach Canada (Peterborough).

Dave was very proud to call Omemee home and loved his time on Pigeon with family and friends. He was an avid gardener and had a deep appreciation for music. Dave loved to fish, play cards with friends and had a passion for hockey.

The family would like to thank everyone for all their love and support for Dave – especially over the past 7 years as he battled challenging health conditions. They would also like to acknowledge the exceptional support and attention-to-care that he received from the Peterborough Regional Health Center. We were fortunate to be blessed by such a fighter and proud man that gave us so many wonderful memories to cherish forever.

Dave’s wishes were to be cremated and there will be no service at this time. A Celebration of Life will be held in the summer.
