Obituary for David Lawson "Dave" Drummond

26 November 1942 - 13 April 2019
President of Drummond Bros House & Building Movers
It is with profound sadness the family and friends of David Drummond announce his passing, the result of recent heart problems and a massive stroke. Dave and his twin brother Gilmour (Gib) were a package that could never be separated so this is an especially profound loss for Gib. Dave would insist that we mention his dear life long friend he lovingly called his ‘brother-from-another-mother’, Art Brown. Work was more than a passion to Dave - it was his reason for living. Per his wishes, he went down with his boots on. He loved those that worked with him like family. He welcomed each new customer (soon to become friend) and enjoyed that every job was unique & challenging. The rewards from a job well done were many: wonderful experiences, many laughs, old stories to tell, new stories to share and the special satisfaction that comes from looking back at what a team of professionals had just accomplished. May he rest in peace now that his final building move is over. It also must be noted that Dave was a dedicated volunteer member (retired Captain) of the Almonte Fire Department for 25+ years, during which time he contributed much to the department as well as his beloved Almonte community. Mourning Dave’s loss is his partner Shirley Blonski, daughter JoAnna, siblings Gib, Bill (Grace), Mac (Joan), Bruce (Elaine), Millie Garbuio (late John), Allan (late Dana), Gloria (Jaimie), Janet (William), and numerous nieces and nephews. Waiting to welcome him Home is brother John (Colleen), sister-in-law Dana, brother-in-law John, brother-in-law Steve and parents Stewart & Doreen Drummond (nee Simpson). The family wishes to sincerely thank those wonderful friends who jumped in to help that morning, and acknowledge the wonderful ambulance staff, nurses & doctors at the Almonte General Hospital for their compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory to the Almonte General Hospital Fairview Manor Foundation or Heart & Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.

A celebration of a life well lived will be held on
Saturday, 20 April from 2-5pm at
Almonte Civitan Hall, 500 Almonte St.

Sorry Shirley . Almonte has lost a great Ottawa Valley character. Not many left of that kind. No one would ever forget Dave or the Drummond Boyz. RIP Dave. You've earned it. Wonderful job done.

Our condolences to Dave's family and Shirley Ann. I met Dave through Shirley Ann when we would be moving tons of fabric and tables from the store to Quilt Shows. He liked things done his way and fast. I remember Shirley Ann always looking for a yummy dessert to take home to Dave. Thinking of you Shirley Ann, and sorry I missed the Celebration of Life.

My condolences to Dave's family. I was shocked to learn of Dave's passing, I will miss him.
It was only a few years ago that I met Dave and then had the pleasure of having Sunday breakfasts with him and Ross at the Superior Restaurant.
