Obituary of David James Wharry
David James Wharry,
November 27, 1956 - September 5, 2020.
It is with immense sadness that the family of Dave Wharry
announces his passing on Saturday, September 5, 2020, at the
age of 63. After a brave two year battle with cancer, Dave passed
peacefully with his family by his side at Princess Margaret
Dave will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 32
years, Doris, his children, Nicole and Robert and his precious
dog, Rooby. He was the dearest son of the late Bill and Isabel
Wharry and dearest son-in-law of Lucy and the late Gino Moro.
Dave will also be fondly remembered by his lovely sister Liz,
(Allen deceased), niece Meredith and his many great friends from
all over the world.
Dave was an incredible man who touched the lives of everyone
he met. Whether it was his passion for music, travelling, BBQ or,
his love for his friends and family, Dave made the most of every
moment of his time with us. After his seasoned career as a sales
executive he turned his attention to the community and the needs
of others. In 2018, he founded the non-for-profit charity Guitars for
Kids Toronto which has since donated over 150 guitars to children
in need. We will deeply miss Dave and will carry his legacy,
kindness, and love in our hearts forever.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date where his family
and friends can come together and share stories and memories.
In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to Guitars For Kids
Toronto in Dave’s memory.
