Unexpected Death of a Father and Husband

On Thursday, November 12, David Gantman lost his life in a tragic accident. He leaves behind his wife, Donna, and two children, Mindy and Eric. He was a kind man, a good father and loving husband who was looking forward to the arrival of his first grandchild in January. 

David was the sole provider for his wife, Donna, who he leaves behind. While she mourns her husband, she also has mounting financial bills that she is unable to cover including hospital costs, grocery bills, and residential taxes. The donations will go directly to Donna. We hope you can help her and her family during this difficult time. Thank you for your kindness.

His daughter, Mindy, says: "These last few days have been the worst days of my life. I laid my father to rest. I can’t express into words how much this hurts and feels so wrong. My heart is broken and aches. What hurts the most is that more than anything he was looking forward to being a grandpa. He was the best father and husband and no doubt in my mind would of been the best grandfather to my baby girl. He was really a special and genuine person. He had such compassion and love for people. He was a talented painter, gardener, lover of all animals and the most handy person I knew. He loved his family so much and loved all the time we would spend together. So many memories. I will always love you daddy and I miss you so much."
