2017 Sept. 22

My Dad passed away.

My Dad was the best, he was always there for me when I was hurt or sick, he was the funniest person I have ever met. I miss him, I miss his laugh, his jokes, his personality, his voice and our memories. I loved him more than anything in the whole wide world. I loved all the stories he would tell me when he came back from work on the weekends. He was a very handsome man, he was also brave. He was my best friend.  the end. Love, Hayley

David (Dave) “Neuf” Neufeld

1981 – 2017 

Suddenly, on Friday September 22, 2017 Dave Neufeld at the age of 36 years, of Winkler, MB passed away as the result of a heart attack. 

Dave was born in Reedly, California to John G. and Helena (Enns) Neufeld on February 9, 1981.  In 1982, our family made the move to Manitoba and Plum Coulee became home.  Dave attended elementary school in Plum Coulee and then on to GVC Where he completed the 10th grade. Dave’s teenage years were spent having his friends over to watch movies and play video games and after he moved out, mom often told him how she missed all that laughter coming out of the basement.  Even after he turned 16 and got his driver’s licence, he and his friends would still usually end up at the house to have a fire out back. 

Dave began working heavy construction right out of high school and seemed to have found his calling.  He worked for several different companies which included JKW Construction, Giesbrecht Excavating, Rempel Excavating, Brunet Construction, OSC Western and finally Accurate HD making lifelong friends along the way.

When Dave became a father, his life changed.  Everyone who knew him would hear about Hayley.  She came first in his life and was his reason for being.  He loved hearing her stories from school because she has his knack for making any story funny.  He would often be heard repeating her tales from the playground.  No matter how far he was sent for work he made sure he was able to make it home to spend time with Hayley.  Dave was a dedicated father who always encouraged Hayley to be her true self.   She was truly the love of his life. 

Dave was fiercely protective of his family and friends and loved his nephews and nieces unconditionally.  When his niece, Sophia received her cancer diagnosis it broke his heart and when she had her last day of chemo he was overjoyed.  If anyone he loved was going through a challenging time he would drop everything to be by their side.  For him it was that simple.  He told us he loved us often and was always there when it counted. 

Dave leaves to cherish his memory his daughter, Hayley, his mother, one grandmother, two brothers, four sisters and their families.  He was predeceased by his father and one sister. 

Funeral service was held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday September 28, 2017 at the Winkler EMMC with interment at the Rosenbach Cemetery. 

Special thanks to Wiebe Funeral Home, Pastor Loren and the many friends that have held us up during this difficult time. To honor Dave, donations may be made to the acct # 110072639138 at the Access Credit Union created for Hayley’s education fund.
