LEES, David - Peacefully surrounded by family at St. Joseph's Hospital on October 8th, 2017 in his 82nd year.
Loving husband of Anne for 60 years. Cherished father of Deby Hildrop, Diane Francella (Louie), Michelle Bryant (Gary) and Karen Dawson (Joe). Proud Papa of 11 grandchildren.
Dear brother of the late Mamie and Robert Steele and the late Nan Buchan. and brother in law to Jim and Helen McLeish and the late May Young (Walter). He will be missed by his extended family, friends and loved ones.
After immigrating to Canada from Scotland in 1955, David worked at Stelco before he became a proud member of UA Local 67 for 47 years.
His sense of humour always put a smile on the faces of everyone around. When he wasn't travelling to new countries his time was spent golfing and playing soccer. David was proud of his heritage and loved both of the countries he has called home.
