Greb, David C –
Surrounded by his family at Sakura House in Woodstock, Dave peacefully rode his final wave.
Survived by his wife Diane (formerly Stecho, nee Welsh), son Jonathan (Emily) and grandson Daniel Greb, stepson Rodney Stecho (Laura) and grandsons John and Thomas, stepson Kevin Stecho and grandson Jack and granddaughter Claire. Dave is also survived by his sisters Julianne Holmes (the late Doug), Nancy Lishman (Rick), sister-in-laws Donna Hall (the late Bob) and Marj Moore (Keith).
Predeceased by his daughter Lisa Greb (2003), his parents Arthur and Bernice (nee Thompson) and his brother Thomas (2007). Lisa and Dave both shared a passion for the beauty, style and power of the Chevrolet Corvette and enjoyed many races together.
Dave also had a passion for fast and loud boats, having owned several offshore Formula boats over the years. He and Di were a terrific team on the water handling their 38’ Formula.
From driving a highway tractor to commercial real estate, Dave always put his best effort into everything he did. He was a 34-year member and obtained the rank of Staff Sergeant of the Ontario Provincial Police Auxiliary and loved to engage in community events representing the OPP.
Dave was a true gentleman, always quick with a smile and a joke and was the king of puns. Dave was kind and friendly to everyone he met and cherished by his loyal friends, and Papa will be greatly missed by his grandchildren while Uncle Dave will be missed by many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. Our grief is somewhat lessened knowing that Dave is again in his daughter Lisa’s company.
Cremation has taken place. A Celebration will be held at a later date.
Donations may be made in Dave’s memory to Sunrise Therapeutic Riding & Learning Centre, Sakura House or Torch Run.
