David Farrant lost his battle with cancer on August 25, 2014.
He was born in 1938, and was third oldest of the Farrant kids. (Mary, Marvin, David, Charlotte, Edward, Helen, Allan)
He lived in the North Island most of his life, and was good at anything that he put his hand to. He was an avid woodsman, and fisherman.
He endeared himself to the public as he exercised his skill as a power saw and marine mechanic, always able to successfully repair their problems.
He has three children, David, Helen, Brenda and seven grandchildren – Johnathon, Christina, Natasha, Laura, Travis, Jordan and Kirsten.
A lasting tribute to his memory is the trail that he built from Telegraph Cove to Blinkhorn. This has become a real attraction to the visitors to the Cove, and now the trail bears his name.
He will be missed by his family, and his many friends in the Port McNeill area.
His wish is for the family to scatter his ashes at Blinkhorn at a future date.
The family would like to thank Dr. Armogam and the staff at the Port McNeill Hospital for their care of David.
No service by request.
