With loved ones at his bedside, 57 year old David Brian Matejka passed away at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital in Cranbrook on Monday, October 21st.
David is survived by his wife Karen, his children: Joy, Matthew (Sarah), Drake and Tannis, Karen’s children Nishka and Kayla, 7 grandchildren: Paige, Heidi, Rylan, Aidra, Lilly, Violet, and Delila, his brother Ken (Wilma) and his sister Janice (Glen) as well as nieces, nephews and other extended family members. He was preceded in death by his parents Loreen and Jim Matejka.
David was a family man; happiest in the company of his wife, kids, and his seven beautiful granddaughters. He was a protective, proud father who loved teasing others with his sharp, dry wit. David was passionate about his green lawn and his meticulously manicured yard; the envy of everyone who passed by. David also loved to travel; but inside beat the heart of a true fisherman who never passed up on the opportunity to cast his rod into the water!
A genuine, kind-hearted man, David will be sadly missed by those who knew and loved him.
Memorial tributes may be made in David’s name to the Sand Creek Lions, Box 121, Jaffray BC V0B 1T0. Messages of condolence may be sent to the family at www.cherishedmemoriesfs.com Arrangements entrusted to Cherished Memories Funeral Services Ltd.
