It has been gratifying to see Dave McFadden pop up here and there on the internet and in conversation since we lost him last week. He was a great writer and a beloved man and his work exerted a lasting influence on so many people. Susan Walker wrote a lovely appreciation. Quill and Quire also published a remembrance, and CBC’s As It Happens broadcast an interview with Stuart Ross who edited all of Dave’s last books including everything published by Mansfield Press.

For those of you who want to pay respects to Dave in person, there will be a funeral service Saturday, June 16, at 11 am, at St. Anne’s Anglican Church, 270 Gladstone Avenue.
