Danks, David Leslie Mark
David Danks passed away suddenly on September 15 2008 at his home in Victoria. David will be remembered by all who knew him for his many positive traits, such as his integrity, loyalty, generosity and energy. He brought a characteristic commitment and sense of fun to such diverse activities as mountain biking, playing hockey, camping, socializing with friends, reading in a range of genres including science fiction and Roman history, and many other interests. He also travelled widely especially immediately after university graduation, from Cape Breton, NS to Banff, AB and beyond, as well as in the United States and Costa Rica. David was born in the United States, and soon afterwards came to Canada with his parents. He attended Fielding Drive and Glebe Collegiate schools in Ottawa, then the University of Waterloo, and pursued a career in environmental sciences. He worked with Conor Pacific Environmental in Ottawa, with Einerson, Fowler and Watson in California and for the past seven years with Seacor (now SLR) consulting in Victoria. In 2008 he was proud to receive his professional biology accreditation for British Columbia (RPBio). He had been away from work since 2007, including brain surgery in December, but with typical courage had recovered almost completely from the effects and was expecting to return to work in October 2008. David was a very loving and sensitive person beneath his sometimes joking and sometimes assertive exterior.
