David "Dave" Carmount

June 23, 2021


CARMOUNT, David - It is with broken hearts we share the passing of David Orville Gordon Carmount at Grey Bruce Health Services - Owen Sound on Wednesday, June 23, 2021 in his 74th year.  Survived by his wife of 51 years, Doris (née MacDonald) and children, Jeff (Lorie) of Port Elgin and Pam Charlton (Terry) of Brantford.  Also survived by grandchildren: Brady, Bryanna, Chase, Raechel, Reegan, Cailyn and Kelsey; his brother Dale of British Columbia and sister Kathy (Bruce) Rowbotham of Coldwater. Predeceased by his brother John and sister Sandra (George Whetham). Remembered by Ross MacDonald, Doug & Ruth MacDonald, Murray & Patti MacDonald, and many cousins, nieces and nephews.  Dave was a proud member of IBEW Local 804 for over 40 years and built a large network of friends in the electrical industry.  His work took him to Wiarton during the hospital build, where he discovered Blue Water Park. This became his second home for the next 28 years.  Dave loved spending time with his trailer family, fishing in the bay and the shenanigans around the campfire.  His greatest joys came from travelling with his fifth wheel and spending time with his grandchildren. As per Dave’s wishes there will be no service. Cremation has taken place.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Cancer Patient Services or Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation. Arrangements entrusted to England Funeral Home, Mount Forest. 


So sorry Doris. He was a friend for over 50 years, starting with loaning me his little white Ford to go to Toronto for a job interview. I am so glad that we got to reminisce at the trailer park last summer. Best wishes Ross and Elizabeth Reid

Doris, Jeff, Pam and families - so terribly sorry to hear about Dave's passing. I have many wonderful childhood memories with him and your family. He was an incredible man - who always had a big smile and a joke (or ten) to share! He brought joy to everyone he interacted with - and he will be sorely missed. My thoughts are with you all during this difficult time, and sending you love, and hugs.

We have known Dave and Doris from quite a while back, Bruce worked with Dave in the 70's. When we were in the area, we dropped by their home in Walkerton, then Mount Forest, just to say Hi. Over the last many years stopped in Wiarton for impromptu visits - we shared a few glasses of wine, good memories and many laughs.
We were saddened to hear of his passing, and send our sincere condolences to you Doris, and all of your family.

Our thoughts are with you and your family at this time of profound loss. Dave was a special person and one hopes to meet a person like him as we travel through life. We are the richer for having known him. Sherry and I were honoured to have Dave in our wedding party and looked forward to seeing him at family functions over the years. He was so proud of his family and always took time to acknowledge his love and pride of each and everyone of you. And he always took care to ask about our family. He will be with us in our memories for the rest of our lives. Bob and Sherry

— Bob and Sherry Graham, June 25, 2021
