Dave is a very humble man and was deflecting this honour to his wife and the people he works with. I am honoured to know and work with this man, and it is great we have a person that is willing to give back to his community," says supervisor, Cpl. Doug Kivinen of the Chilliwack RCMP. "The Upper Fraser Valley Regional Division RCMP is certainly proud and honoured to work with such dedicated people like Dave,"

The Rotarian presenting the award to Dave acknowledged that, Dave loves every minute of what he does but his family is his real treasure and he gives his wife so much credit and thanks for her support. For all of his hard work and commitment in keeping our community safe, Dave is certainly very deserving of a Paul Harris Fellowship award."
