Dates of existence



Dave Armitage grew up in the Gorge area. At one point he worked as a commercial fisherman in Uclulet. In 2001 he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. He continued to struggle with mental illness and became homeless, living in a tent in Cuthbert Holmes park. In his latter years he was frequently seen at Fairway Plaza and was well-known in the area. He was found deceased on December 28, 2016 near the intersection of Tillicum Road and Gorge Road. He was 58 years old. Members of the community left tributes to him outside the plaza, and these were collected by members of the Gorge Tillicum Community Association. A memorial service was held at Trinity Presbyterian Church on January 15, 2017.
