Obituary of John David Charles Pearce

John David Charles Pearce was born on March 3, 1948. He passed away peacefully on Monday, October 25, 2021 at St. Vincents Hospital, Ottawa, following a long, difficult illness.


Beloved son of the late Eldridge Burton Pearce and Patricia Pearce Dalgetty. David will be sadly missed by his brother Stuart Pearce (Andrea); sister Lynn Delgaty (Kie);  nephews Sean Pearce and Michael Delgaty; nieces Heather Pearce and Kiera Delgaty Pak and grand nieces  Mei-ling, Lia and Oriana.


David was a kind and gentle soul.  He was forever concerned for the well being of those around him yet, seldom complained about the complex mental and physical challenges which he, himself, lived with every day.  He was a sensitive individual who found peace and fulfillment in his faith, his music and his art.  He was loved and respected by all those who knew him.


The family would like to acknowledge the incredible care, compassion and support that David received throughout the years from Ottawa Salus, the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre and most recently, St. Vincent Hospital.


In lieu of flowers, donations to The Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health or to Ottawa Salus would be much appreciated.
