David Laurie Myra


David Laurie Myra

It is with a profound love and loss we announce the passing of David Laurie Myra. He passed at home with family by his side May 2, 2019.

Davy was 56 years young when he passed, born July 20, 1962. Davy lived on top of Myra Mountain, Western Shore, in the home he built for himself and his family.

Davy will be sadly missed by his loving wife, Michelle(Johnston); their children Jeff (Tracy), Western Shore; Cassie Kaizer (Michael), Windsor Rd, and his grandchildren, Jesse Smith, Allison Myra, Elijah, Simon, Orin Kaizer.

He is the son of the late Laurie Myra and survived by this mother, Stella(Swinamer), Western Shore; his sisters, Janet Eisnor (Darrell), Blockhouse; Elizabeth Arsenault (Alyre), Halifax; his brother, Gordon (Wendy), Martins Point and several nieces and nephews.

Michelle was the love of Davy's life, as he was to her, together since teenagers, with 36 years of marriage. They were like peas and carrots, always together, never separated and their love multiplied into 2 children and 5 grand-babies, which he was so very proud of. Davy also had a love for wood and spent his life building beautiful homes along the South Shore. He had the pleasure of finishing his carpentry career with Sunrise Enterprises Ltd., Otto Van Barneveld.

When Davy wasn't working you would find him outside enjoying all nature's beauty with a cold beer in hand or sitting by the window watching his birds. He will be remembered for his love for his wife, children and grand-babies, his easy going personality, his craftsmanship, his pride & work ethic, his love & dedication towards birds and secretly the squirrels too, his interest in the weather and all the little gadgets around the house to help determine the weather, his luck for finding four leaf clovers and his loyalty to his hockey team Boston Bruins, as he would say, "Play hard Boys"

Special thanks to Abdella, Bruce, Glen, Otto, Palliative Care, VON, SSRH Chemo Unit.

A memorial service will be held 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at St. Mark's Anglican Church, Martins Point, Rev. Ron Barkhouse officiating.

The family would appreciate if memorial donations be made to either the VON; South Shore Palliative Care or the Chemo Ward of South Shore Regional Hospital.
