In Memory of David John Mason
David John Mason, 78, passed away peacefully on October 15, 2022. David was born to Charles Albert and Marjorie Maude Mason in Toronto, Ontario on November 9, 1943.
He received his Bachelor of Science in Forestry from the University of Toronto in 1966 and left right away to live, work and play in Bathurst, New Brunswick. That is where he met the love of his life Geraldine and began working at Bathurst Power and Paper Company. He retired from Stone Consolidated Bathurst after 35 years where he was Operations Manager in the Woodland Division. He LOVED the outdoors and was an avid fisherman and built his own seaworthy wooden fishing boat to cruise the Chaleur Bay. He made many beautiful woodworking pieces that many family and friends have to remember him by. Dave was a quiet, calm, gentle soul, with a love of music and dancing with Geraldine. He was a great steward of the lands and well-loved by many in the forestry and outdoors community.
In addition to his parents, he is predeceased by his siblings Gladys, Irene and Stan. He is survived by his sister Joyce or Toronto, wife of 54 years Geraldine, daughter Tracey (Don) of Chilliwack, British Columbia and son Charles (Sarah) of Sarsfield, Ontario, grandchildren Deidra, Donald, Théodore, Emmeric and Olivier, great grandchildren Malaki and Mason, and many nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to thank the staff of the Sarsfield long term care home. There will be no services, but those who wish to remember David in a special way may make a donation to the Ottawa/Renfrew Dementia Society at 1750 Russell Rd Suite 1742, Ottawa, ON K1G 5Z6.
