Dave was an active member of the Campbellford Curling Club in the early 1980s, sitting on the board for seven years (including one year as president), and managed the bar and weddings for five years.

Now retired, Dave and his wife, Carol, live just south of Campbellford, and spend their time golfing, curling, beekeeping, paddle boarding, and volunteering.
