David Robert Trouton – Obituary –

May 16, 2024

In loving memory ~

It is with sincere sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of David Robert Trouton on May 16, 2024 at Shuswap General Lake Hospital in Salmon Arm, BC. He was surrounded by family and will be greatly missed.

David was predeceased by his father, Franklin, his mother, Eve, and his siblings, Ness, Graham and Joan. His older brother, Allen, currently lives in Sicamous.

David was born in Winnipeg in 1943 and was known as an accomplished hunter, fisherman and trapper while living in Manitoba. A career in underground mining led him to settle in Ontario with his first wife, Marie, and their two sons, Shan and Jay. After being widowed in 1972, David moved to his father’s farm in Sicamous, surrounded by his brothers and sisters. His green thumb and hard work ethic flourished as he maintained an extensive garden and livestock. He also worked in construction in the city, at the local hardware store and as a handyman and painter.

David became active in the local Bible Church where he met Susan Wilding from Malakwa and they married in 1978, adding her two sons, Graham and Neil, to the family. After Susan was diagnosed with cancer, David married Ruby Kreller in 2008.

David enjoyed playing guitar and singing at the local church. He was an active member of the community and spent much of his time volunteering.

He will always be remembered for his passion for the outdoors, generous nature, sense of humor and love of God and community.
