Born July 2, 1966 – Toronto, Ontario
David passed away suddenly on September 27, 2019 at the age of 53 years. Born in Toronto, Ontario on July 2, 1966 to Anna O’Sullivan (nee Wieczorek) and Barry O’Sullivan, and lovingly raised in Bolton, Ontario with his step-mother Sharon O’Sullivan. David was one of nine children and is survived by his brothers Douglas (Deb), Daniel, Terry (Margaret), Kevin (Brent) and sisters Laura (Jim), Anne Marie (Derryl) and Joanne (Cyrus). He is predeceased by his brother Sean. David and his twin sister Laura were extremely close from the start. He will be greatly missed by all of his close family. An avid sportsman in his youth, once David finished high school in Brampton, Ontario, he immediately showed his passion for the culinary arts. He began his career as an accomplished chef and although his heart was in cooking for the people he loved, he was also well loved as resident chef at the Peel Manor Senior’s Facility. And not only for his cooking – David prided himself on brightening the residents’ day with a joke or a smile. Much like his father, he had an ability to talk to anyone, and he was kind and friendly to everyone he met. David will be missed dearly by the many friends he made throughout his successful career. David loved all animals, big and small. As a child, he would rescue mice from around the yard and try to nurse them back to health, much to the smiling chagrin of his mother. As an adult, he once coaxed a baby skunk that wandered onto his deck to try his spaghetti sauce – and instantly had another fan of his cooking. This love of animals carried forward into his adult life, and his beloved dogs Dozer and Isis were by David’s side until the end.
The family will receive their friends at the Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen Street S. (Hwy 50), Bolton (905-857-2213) on Wednesday evening October 2nd, from 6 o’clock until time of celebration of life in the chapel at 7 o’clock. Followed by a reception.
