WOYTUCK, David (Dave)

Passed away peacefully with family by his side on Monday, January 22, 2018 at the age of 59. Dave is survived by his son Jason (Tanya Campbell) of Calgary and daughter Jody Pichler, and their mother Darlene; and grandchildren Tyler Woytuck-Pichler, and Brandon and Nicholas (Nicky) Pichler. He is predeceased by his daughter Melody in 2008, and his brother Allen in 2015. For many years, Dave could be found at a fair or at the Flintstones Theme Park drawing caricatures. He started with large wooden signs, then went on to create signs of all sorts. One of his pieces includes the Alaska Highway Mile “0” monument located in Dawson Creek, B.C. After 10 years of making signs, he moved on to other art forms after attending Northern Lights College in Dawson Creek, where he not only taught teachers, but continued learning, as well. It was here that his artistry really exploded. He created Sunday cartoons in the weekend newspaper and cartoon maps of Kelowna and surrounding areas among other projects. Dave’s artwork even graced the cover of a local phone book. His talent will be seen and appreciated by many for years to come.

In lieu of flowers the family is requesting donations to be made to http://support.vghfoundation.ca/goto/Davewoytuck in honour of Dave and the lung donor who gave us so many more years of life.
Celebration of Life Saturday, February 3, 2018 at the Sandman Hotel, 2130 Harvey Ave in the Okanagan Room from 11:00 am - 2:30 pm.

    Sorry I didn't get to say a final goodbye. I was helping him with a few errands recently. We loved to talk about art and our experiences as artists. I will miss that deep laugh. Create with our Creator my friend.

    I knew Dave for many years when he visited KGH. Always enjoyed his conversation, his smile and positive outlook. He will be missed by many.

    Dave was a gifted artist and friend. I am very sorry to hear of his passing. We will remember the many pets he painted including Joey who graced the cover of the Lake Country phone book. I will miss his wry sense of humour and his smile. Rest In Peace, my friend. Dianne Smith ( Barn Gallery)
