Obituary For David William Malvis
January 1, 1954 – September 8, 2023
It is with great sadness that we announce that on September 8, 2023, David William Malvis died suddenly at Grande Prairie Regional Hospital in Alberta.
He was born January 1, 1954, to the late William Malvis and Denise Doucett in Kapuskasing, Ontario. He was the lifelong friend and husband to Carol Malvis (nee: Laven), the beloved father of Erin (Mike) Lambright of Grande Prairie and Christopher Malvis of Burnaby, the proud Pépère of Oliver and Hudson Lambright and the brother of Carol (John) Bartosik of Barrie, Louise Pranger, Jacquie (Steve) Fazzari, Raymond Jansen of Guelph and the late Timothy Jansen. He cherished his time with his siblings and their children, nieces: Angelaina, Kristin, Katelyn, Julia, and Nichole. David had a profound connection with John (JJ) Jansen, whom he lovingly referred to as Pops, as John played a significant role in shaping him as a man.
Dave would become a skilled home builder and carpenter known for his attention to detail as well as a bush pilot in the DHC-2 Beaver. David was talented at and enjoyed being immersed in his work. A loyal and devoted friend to many but with an especially strong friendship in Robert and Lorna Harder of Grande Prairie. He was a tremendous man that will be dearly missed.
In the words of Dave; “It’s a beautiful thing!”. A Celebration of his Life will be held in the Poplar Room at The Pomeroy Inn between 7 and 9 PM, September 17, 2023, where the family invites anyone to share their memories of Dave.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made toward Muscular Dystrophy Canada on behalf of Oliver.
