Obituary of David H. Daigle

DAIGLE DAVID H. – Unexpectedly at his residence on Thursday, February 22nd, 2024; David Harold Daigle, husband of Carrie (Legacy) Daigle. Born in Digby, NS; he is the son of the late Earle Lockhart & Mary Opal Neilson.

     In addition to his wife Carrie, he is survived by his children Tabatha Daigle (Tammy), Tiffaney Daigle (Kathryn), Jarret Daigle (Sarah), grandchildren Elizabeth, Prestin, Vallery, Gavin & Charlotte and step-daughter Maria (Kyle) and their children Summer, Solara, Aubree & Skyree and of course his beloved dog Charlie.

    David is also survived by two brothers Eric Neilson, James Neilson (Nancy) and four sisters Jean Graves (Noel), Linda Graves (Jim), Betty McCurdy, Kathy Moore (Larry). He was predeceased by his sister Doreen Achorn.

    David worked for Arauco (Flakeboard) Ltd in St. Stephen, NB for many years. David loved outdoor activities in his life, especially fishing and pond hockey when he was younger. David loved all of his grandchildren very much and taught them all a very special handshake that they did at the end of every visit.

   He was a devoted Montreal Canadians fan since childhood and could often be found cheering them on or cursing them out depending on the game.

   In loving memory of David, he would want you to know that he proudly completed 17 years of sobriety by being a part of and supported by a group of AA people that were spirited with the same strength of mind & determination to be a stronger & better person every day. This transformed his life through dedication and resilience. He loved sharing stories and was known for having long conversations about many topics with friends and family.

   David leaves behind a legacy of perseverance and love that will be remembered fondly by all who knew and loved him. He was known for his unique sense of humor and often had nicknames for those close to him. Need a thingamajig? He could whip you up something creative in a jiff! If you've seen his homemade back scratcher you know what we mean!

    By David’s request cremation will take place followed by a memorial service in celebration of his life to be held on Wednesday, February 28th at 2:00 pm in the chapel of Humphreys Funeral Home, 20 Marks Street, St. Stephen, NB e3L 2B2 (506 – 466 – 3110)

    In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Lung Association would be greatly appreciated by the family. On line condolences or donations can be made at www.humphreysfh.com
