COATS, David Robert - It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of a loving husband, devoted father and faithful friend. David, a resident of Ajax and proud member of St. Bernadette Parish for 48 years, died on Dec 3, 2018 at home, surrounded by family, love and laughter at the age of 87. Born September 25, 1931 in Sydney, Australia, David had a passion for history, tennis, golf, cricket and camping but it was during his travels around the world that he met and married his one true love, Mary Patricia (née Moulton) from Brockville, Ont. A life lived fully, David will be greatly missed by his 3 children Michael, Robert and Kathleen and his daughter-in-law Nga Ying. He is survived by his siblings: Brian Coats of Sydney, Australia and Veronica Hourigan of Canberra, Australia. David was a cherished brother-in-law, an unforgettable uncle to numerous nieces and nephews and a faithful friend to many from all over the world. His warmth, his smile, his endless stories and his infectious laugh will be greatly missed. A funeral mass will be held at St. Bernadette Catholic Church on December 15th at 11am with a celebration of life to follow. "He was a man, take him for all in all. I shall not look upon his like again." ~Shakespeare
