David William Adams
March 15, 1967 - December 7, 2023
It’s with broken hearts we announce the passing of Dave Adams after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 56.
Loving husband to Tracey (nee Keays) for 32 years. Most cherished father to Nolan and Katelyn. Loved by his Mother in law Brenda. Big Brother to Anthony and Kelly. Predeceased by his parents Linda and Gerald (Jerry) Adams. Remembered fondly by his Uncle Glenn Barnes and family in Australia and his Adams Doors family in Mississauga.
Dave loved being a Dad. Dave loved hockey. Dave loved coaching kids hockey. He coached Minor Hockey for 12 years at the AA and AAA level with the Misssisauga Jets, Duffield Devils, North York Rangers and the “Fighting Irish”. Although he worked 6 days a week selling garage doors, he always made time for the boys, he always showed up for them and tried to share his love of the game of hockey with them. He will be remembered fondly as Coach Dave.
May he rest in peace, knowing that he was truly loved by his family and will always hold a special place in the hearts of those who knew him.
A memorial visitation will be held for Dave on Sunday January 7, 2024 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Ward Funeral Home (4671 Highway 7, Woodbridge).
