BRANDER, David- Age 53 passed away at C.E.E Bluewater Health, Petrolia on Wednesday, December 31, 2020. Born in Sarnia, Ontario on September 23, 1967. Beloved husband and best friend of Corinne Brander (Grantham/Moore). He was Daddy Dave to Chelsea Lefevbre (Moore) and Nichelle Moore. Son of Kaye Brander (Brown) and the late Lawrence Brander (2018). Brother of Stephen Brander. David followed in the footsteps of his Father Lawrence and Grandfather Clarke as an industrial electrician with IBEW local 530 for 25+ years. His Heart was with the Oldies in Cars and Motorcycles. He was a long-time member of the AMCA. David participated and supported so many events such as the Cannonball, The Chase, Basket Case Productions-Split’n Lanes Dogin’ Gutters, and Freedom Machine. David was also his wife’s sidekick and number one fan encouraging her poultry passion and show endeavors so much so that he too was hooked. He took much pride in perfecting his own line of Yokohamas. He embraced the hobby and became one of the founders of the Renegade Poultry Show. Leave it to David to combine the two worlds of “Biker & Chicks”.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions cremation has taken place and a service will take place at a later date.
Sympathy may be expressed through donations to the DavidBranderMemorial@Hotmail.com that will be distributed to the organizations dear to his heart or to the St. Joseph’s Hospice.
Saddened to hear of Dave’s passing. I enjoyed working with him, and his stories about cars and bikes
We were shocked and saddened to hear that Davey Boy (as affectionately known by us) has passed. He was instrumental, years ago, in keeping a number of racing and demolition cars running during many competitions.. His wonderful wit will be missed. He had a way of making you laugh with his off the cuff humour. Our deepest condolences to Corinne and his family. He will be missed but not forgotten. His memory and those that he shared with us will live on through us.
Our hearts weep with you and we are here if you need us. David was a force of nature who took your breath away and we knew him through you and your love. Our prayers are with you and your family!
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family
I can’t believe it.. I really can’t. I love you! I am going to miss the funny memes you tag stacey and I in. I’m going to miss your comments on almost every post. You will be missed deeply by your family down in South American lol. We love you so much.
Please accept my sincere condolences. Although I didn’t know David well…it was immediately clear to me that he was a special man, and I’m honored to have had the chance to meet him. Love and Peace to Cori and David’s entire Family.
