Condolence: I was so sorry to hear of Dave's passing. It was an honour to work with him for over 30 years. I was his head guard at Leuty, partnered with him at Grenadier Pond and considered myself lucky when I was on his platoon at the Main Station. My condolences to your family. I will think of him often and fondly.

Condolence: There are no words that I can write that can help ease the pain of losing a loved one, especially an individual who had done so much and was so well respected. I was with the Toronto Harbour Police between 1967 and 1973, and Davy stood tall among his co-workers and had a dramatic impact on the lives of hundreds of young people who worked as lifeguards in his years Q-Beach and Main Station. Clearly, he was a man destined for great things as shown by his successes with TPS after amalgamation. On behalf of myself and my wife Judy, please know that we are remembering him in our prayers and offer to you our deepest sympathies.

Condolence: My sincere condolences to the Bryan family
I did not know Dave personally, only from Mike sharing stories and fond memories of working together for many years starting with the THP
Sadly Mike passed 2 years ago but I know he would have wanted to pay his respects

Condolence: My condolences to the Bryan family.

I had the good luck to work as a young man under Dave. In the late 1960's, at the Leuty Lifeguard, and then in the early 1970's at the Main Station.

His leadership and character were some of the best I could have received and of which I have tried to emulate throughout my life. Fine memories I've thought of on many occasions.

Rest in peace Davey.

Our condolences to you and family. We were saddened to hear of Dave’s passing.
He was a knowledgeable, capable, confident officer who was respected by all. Dave had a good sense of humor & a quick wit. He enjoyed harmless, practical jokes.
Over the many years of working together, I feel blessed with many good memories.

Condolence: It is with great sadness to learn of the passing of Dave. Although it has been several years since I last saw Dave at a Harbour Police reunion , he will be remembered fondly with a twinkle in his eye. They were wonderfully unique times spent with marvellous officers of the T.H.P.
