BOONE David Eric Feb. 15, 1944 – Jan. 15, 2021 It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of David Eric Boone after a courageous battle with cancer. Predeceased by parents Walter and Jean Boone, brothers Walter and Otto and sister Elizabeth (Dollie) LeDrew, sisters-in-law Beverley Larder and Olive Boone, brothers-in-law Fraser Rowe and Dennis Riche. Leaving with treasured memories his project and dance partner of 52 years Linda Boone, daughters Kerry Collins (John) and Dana Boone; granddaughter Jada Collins; brother Doug Boone (Ontario); sisters Carol Rowe, Phyllis Riche (Aubrey Brenton), Rosalyn Boone (John Landrigan); brothers-in-law Ivan LeDrew and Derrick Atwill (Gloria Taylor); sister-in-law Doreen Cahill Boone (Ontario); as well as many nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends. He will be sadly missed by the hunting buddies Dick, Ken, Max, Glen, Bill and Doug when they visit their hunting cabin on South West Gander River; all his friends at Bell Aliant Pioneers especially the lunch guys; the Mercers and Smiths on Wednesday nights; his long-standing poker buddies from Bell Aliant; his friends from the Cochrane Street United Church Men’s group, especially his breakfast buddies Bob Mercer and Gerry Penney; as well as the Couples Bridge Group. Dave was never one to sit and do nothing, and was happiest on “The Land” at his summer home on the Hodgewater Line, puttering around in his garage, attending to his flowers or cooking cod tongues and britches – a treat for Jada, John and himself. Dave had nothing but praise for the many doctors and nurses he encountered at the Health Sciences Centre, Eastern Health Cordage Place and Major’s Path. He so appreciated the care of Dr. Armstrong, Dr. Toms, Dr. Duffy and many others during his many treatments, surgeries and hospital stays. Cremation has taken place.
