Obituary for David Mitchell Kemp


It is with broken hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of David Kemp in his home on November 4th, 2023, at the age of 52.

David will be missed every day by his parents (Merilyn and Dayton), Carol, daughters Julia and Kayla, son J.D. (John Dayton), brothers Steven (Pam), Bruce (Lisa and Maya), and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

David was raised in Charleswood, Winnipeg and graduated from Oak Park High School. Growing up, David was full of life, and made friends easily. He was a dreamer who was always inventing new things and strived for excellence in everything he did. David loved to play hockey and baseball and was an avid fan of the Winnipeg Jets and Blue Bombers. David’s greatest joy in life was his children and they knew he was always there for them. He could easily lift them up with his smile and humour.

“Safe in the arms of Jesus”. You will be forever in our hearts.

Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, November 25th at 1:00 pm, at the Neil Bardal Funeral Centre, 3030 Notre Dame Avenue.
