Micia Kanstrup and family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the First Met congregation and staff for your cards, flowers and gift baskets following the passing of David McGowan. Thank you also for the charitable donations in his memory. Your kind words and shared memories of David brightened our days, and our hearts are lifted knowing how much he was loved and included in our wonderful church family.
David’s ashes will be interred July 26 at Hatley Memorial Gardens next to our Mom, Cato Beck, and Dad, Maurice Beck, who also were long time members of First Metropolitan United. Due to COVID a small gathering of immediate family will attend the interment.
David came to our family as a foster baby when he was seven months old, and has been a beloved member of our family for 60 years. He spent many happy years as a participant at the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul’s Frederic Ozanam Centre, should you like to make a donation.
