Obituary of David George Allan Payton

It is with broken hearts that the Payton family announces the passing of David George A. Payton in his 76th year. On Tuesday September 21, 2021, from esophageal cancer, at Bethell Hospice in Inglewood. David passed peacefully with the love of his life, Brenda, by his side. An amazing father to David(Denean), Dawn, John and Tricia(Pete). The best Poppa to Deanna, Michelle &Ty, Tarah & Brandy, and Payton & Adam. A Great Poppa to Brody & Bennett, Avalynne and Kristina. He was the 'pied piper' of his Grands, they followed him wherever he went, getting into mischief and sharing a bond of love and delight. The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to David. Whether he was sitting with his wife outside enjoying happy hour in their backyard paradise; or an evening with all his family, a drink of rye in his hand and the inevitable kitchen dance parties that would follow. David was very generous and took great pleasure in lending a hand to others, while being a great mentor to all. Whether helping his friends and neighbours or giving time to his ever growing family.
