“God saw you getting tired,
so He closed his arms around you
and whispered 'Come to Me.'

You didn’t deserve what you
went through and so He gave you rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful
he only takes the best.

And when we saw you sleeping,
so peaceful, free from pain,
we could not wish you back
to suffer that again."

ZAVAGNO, David Joseph Zavagno - Obituary | Print |

ZAVAGNO, David Joseph -

Zavagno_DavidDavid Joseph Zavagno, aged 70, of Clarington,

Passed away at home on Saturday August 16, 2014.

Dave was born in Toronto, Ontario on January 12, 1944.  He attended New Toronto High School and began his working career as a draftsman.  He moved into manufacturing and worked as a purchaser for Jacuzzi, then for Stanley.  Finally he entered into a partnership to set up Steelwood Doors and served as Vice President of Manufacturing until his retirement in 2002.

Dave enjoyed drawing, designing and building whimsical gifts, renovating, maintaining the grounds of his property, and collecting and restoring antiques.  Every project he completed with his own special blend of creativity and attention to detail.  He appreciated music, architecture, art, woodcarving, stand-up comedy, "rat rods", fine cuisine, and a good bottle of wine. He also loved a succession of Irish Wolfhounds.

David was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December 2012 and spent the next twenty months fighting it in every way he could.  During this time he bought a "rat rod" and helped to direct its rebuilding, then discovered "Steampunk" and began designing and building industrial-style lamps. He led everyone who loved him throughout the journey with optimism and bravery.  Dave had a true heart and loved unconditionally.

Dave is survived by his wife, Ann (nee Webb), first wife, Sandra (nee Sills), children: Julie, Aimee, Maggie (Lee), Lee (Mel), Connal (Jen) and Quinn, sisters: Tina (Ray) and Gina (Glen), and brother, Jerry (Pat).  He also leaves behind neices Grace, Lindsay and Bonnie and nephews Galen, Gideon and Connor.  Dave was predeceased by his mother Inez (nee Ongaro) and father, Guiseppe (Joe).

Invitations will be sent for a private memorial gathering to be held sometime in September.

Memorial donations may be made in Dave's name to the Irish Wolfhound Club of Canada Rescue or the Princess Margaret Hospital.
