It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of David Gerard Wojcik. He passed away peacefully surrounded by his family after a brief and courageous battle with cancer.
Born Aug. 23, 1949 in Sydney, he was son to Walter & Priscilla Wojcik.
He is survived by his adoring wife and soul mate of 42 years, Maggie (MacDonald); his son, Adam, Saskatchewan) and his daughter, Dayna and son-in-law, Sheldon (Long Point) and their three children, David's beloved grandchildren: Reid 7, Mollie 5 and Clara 2. Jodju will be dearly missed by his hockey star, unicorn and little boss girl.
He is also survived by his three sisters; Corrine (Dave), Pam (Rich), Wanda (late Mark) and his brother, Ron (Liz); sisters-in law, Francis (Gary), Betty (Wayne). He has many nieces and nephews whom he was incredibly close to and proud of.
David will also be fondly missed by his close lifelong friend, Robert Murray, hunting comrade, Ed Plomp and special friends, Vince and Tina DiBenedetto.
David graduated from St Francis Xavier in 1970. He then pursued a career in the RCMP. He graduated from Depot in Regina in Sept. of 1971. He had a long and proud career as a member. Leading up to his retirement, he finished his career as an Inspector with Aboriginal and Visible Minority policing. He made strong connections with many communities in Nova Scotia. Special thanks to Dwight Bishop for his friendship and leadership. David was a distinguished member of the RCMP for 36 years. He will be remembered for his devotion and unwavering sense of integrity to those who worked with him and for him.
While stationed in Ottawa with the RCMP, David pursued his law degree at the University of Ottawa where he graduated Magna Cum Laude on May 30, 1990. He combined these two careers which led him on many opportunities across the country.
Upon his retirement from the RCMP, David's passion for acting, which he had developed in his university years, was rekindled. He made several appearances on TV shows, in movies, commercials and starred in plays at Halifax's Fringe Festival.
Hunting was another of his more recent endeavours. He loved to go for long walks, be one with nature and was passionate about maintaining a balance of protecting certain species and eliminating others. His final hunt will be remembered as his most special as he took his grandson Reid with him.
His family and friends knew David as the most dependable and generous man around. His guidance will be sorely missed.
