David Gushue

February 11, 2018


It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of David Gushue, 49, on
February 11, 2018 at home.
David was born in Sydney where he spent most of his life. He was the son of Evelyn Dunn and the late
David “Bruce” Gushue.
David worked as a carpenter, where he was self-employed until recent years when he began working for
Jeff Ellis Enterprise. With David’s big heart he was always there to lend a hand and a hammer to
whomever needed him. Other than his family, one of David’s passions was four-wheeling with friends
and family. Through this passion, he gained many special friends with whom he shared many happy
times and made unforgettable memories.
Besides his mother, David is survived by Cathie, his loving wife of 31 years; his children, Matthew
(Brianna), Natasha (Shawn), and Justin (Dale). He also leaves behind “Papa’s girls”, Taylor and Chloe; as
well as, his sisters, Corinnea Sampson, Lisa Biron (Alan); and a brother, Jamie Dunn (Christine). He is also
survived by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Arthur and Emily Dunn.
Cremation has already taken place.
Visitation will take place on Friday, February 16, 2018 from 12-2 p.m. at S.W. Chant and Son Funeral
Home, 564 Alexandra St., Sydney.

Reception to follow.
“Davey Boy, you will be missed by many who loved you. Have a safe journey.”
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
