Dave's Park!


I was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1952. In 1969 I moved to the Halifax, Nova Scotia where I still live. Unlike many from Cape Breton who still think of that as their real home, I have enjoyed living in the Halifax area and it truly is my home. I have no intention of ever moving back.

In June of 2007 I married a wonderful woman named Ruth. Unfortunately, she passed away in November of 2012 after a four year battle with cancer.

I recently owned a cat, Alvin, although he would have said that he owned me and that is probably a more truthful statement. He died in April of 2013. He and my previous cat, Sparky, share a memorial page on this site.

I have many interests...too many to list here. I worked at various jobs, mostly carpentry and wood-working but I am retired now. I still do woodworking as a hobby.

Since the late 1990's I have been playing music a bit more (I had stopped playing professionally in 1974). I have played music since I was a child and you can find more info on that on my music page, the "Music Room".

I am into model railroading, I do volunteer work and I still do a small bit of work on web sites.

Almost everything else there is to know about me can be found on the various pages of this site. I hope you enjoy the rest of my web site. Thank you for dropping in.

Dave.
