JACKSON: Eric David (Dave) passed away at his home in Beaverton on Friday September 18, 2020 with family by his side. He was born in Montreal on March 18 1943. Dave was predeceased by his parents Eric and Grace Jackson (nee Donaldson).
Dave is survived by his loving wife of 26 years and best friend Barbara Jackson (Little), his sons Matthew Jackson of Fort Frances, Ryan Jackson of Alberta and his granddaughter Cassandra Jackson of Fort Frances. He is also survived by his sister Holly (Bryan) Pick of Oshawa, Step-Daughter Bonnie (Kevin) Parisien, step-grandchildren Bryan and Corey Parisien, sisters-in-law Gladys (Carl) Nesbitt, Joan (the late Jack) Collins, Eleanor (Carl) Michell and Cathy (Dave) Beckett.
Lovingly remembered by his nephews John (Stephanie) Pick of Ottawa and David (Lindsay) Pick of Caledon East and great nephews and nieces Evan, Eleanor, Kennedy, and Tyler Pick as well as many cousins of the Jackson and Donaldson families.
The family moved to Teeswater Ontario when Dave was 6 where he attended public school. The family moved to Newmarket in 1957 where Dave attended Newmarket High. While in High School Dave obtained various certificates with Canadian Red Cross and Royal Life Saving Society of England. This led to a position as a lifeguard with the Provincial Government at Wasaga Beach for 5 seasons.
Dave was employed by CIBC for 28 years in various branch and Head Office positions. While with the Bank he became a Fellow of the Institute of Canadian Bankers and became interested in financial planning. He left the Bank in 1992 joining Investors Group where he obtained his Certified Financial Planner designation. He retired in 2010 from IG after 18 years.
Dave was always active in the communities he lived in, holding Executive positions with North Durham Unit of Canadian Cancer Society, South Lake Simcoe District Boy Scouts of Canada, Beaverton Horticultural Society, Cannington Lawn Bowling Club and various Business Associations.
In his working years Dave enjoyed tennis, downhill skiing and curling. He enjoyed many foreign vacations but found his “place in the sun” in Aruba where he spent a few months each year with Barbara in retirement enjoying meeting many new friends, swimming, snorkeling and walking the beaches barefoot.
A Private Family Service will be held at Mangan Funeral Home, 332 Osborne Street, Beaverton Ont.
A Graveside Committal Service will be held at 1P.M. on Thursday September 24, 2020 at Culross and Teeswater Cemetery, South of Teeswater on Concession 4 west of Bruce Road 4.
Barbara wishes to extend her gratitude to family, friends and neighbours who kept in touch with Dave during his illness by way of outside visits, phone calls, emails and Social Media. He appreciated each and every visit.
If so desired memorial donations may be made through Mangan Funeral Home to Brock Community Food Bank or Canadian Wildlife Federation.

David and I started in elementary school in Teeswater and were also part of a swim team at the local pool when growing up.
We reconnected every year at the town reunion and did so at the 2019 gathering.
To Barb and family I am so sorry for your loss and hope you will be comforted by many wonderful memories .
Thinking of you all

Dave, Barb and I were friends and IG colleagues. We shared many drives carpooling to work events. Dave was a person who easily shared his knowledge, experience and love of family. He had a silent wisdom which guided conversations and always made me feel our time together was well spent. Dave's calm and welcoming presence was very special! My heart and hugs go out to you Barb.

Dave was a man of extreme integrity. I had the pleasure of working with Dave at Investors Group for several years and enjoyed his continuous smile. He involved himself in every cause there was that was meant to improve the lives of others. He was a great partner and team mate who always kept his commitments to his family, friends and co=workers. He will be sadly missed but fodnly remembered by all of us. Ever life has and end and Dave lived the part in between to the fullest. Our sincere condolences to Barb and family.
