It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Dave on April 17, 2018 in his 55th year. Beloved son of Maria Ottaviano (late Mario). Dave will be sadly missed by his daughter Olivia and her mother Shirleen. Dear companion and best friend Virginia Naccarato. He was a great and caring brother to Maurice (Suzanne) and Mark. Survived by his in laws Rosina & Domenic Naccarato, by his brother in law Mike Naccarato, and many extended family, colleagues and students. Dave’s passion and #1 priority was his daughter and his family. He was a teacher with the Niagara Catholic District School Board at St. Therese Elementary School. Dave loved to watch old Clint Eastwood “spaghetti westerns”, and was a huge Toronto Maple Leaf and Dallas Cowboy fan. Dave had a great sense of humour and was always willing to help others.
