Of Tantallon, was born in East Chester on June 29, 1942. He was the son of the late Eldred and Marjorie (Drysdale) Longard and lived most of his life in Timberlea.
It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce his passing on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 in the QEII Health Sciences Center, Halifax.For most of his life, Dave worked as a trucker with Lafarge and the Department of Transportation where he was known for his sense of humor and often enjoyed playing a good trick on his unsuspecting coworkers. Husband, friend and companion to Dorothy, his wife of 52 years, he was also an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing and hunting on the Nine Mile River with his brother Roy. One of his greatest pleasures in life was being with his family, he was always willing to lend a helping hand and was everyone’s “go to” Mr. Fix It. After his retirement, he loved to spend time working in his garden and the grandchildren were always a big part of his plans and excursions; Nanny and Grampy’s house was always their second home. Survived by his wife Dorothy J.; daughters, Katherine (Andrew) Longard – Cooke; Patricia (Matthew) Longard - Jussup, both of Tantallon; grandchildren, Chelsea, Ryan and Austin; brother, Roy; sister, Sharon (Otto), Saskatchewan; Nettie (Roland) Wells, N.B.; Patricia (Roger) Ward, N.B. Predeceased by his brothers, Cyril, James; sister, Corrine.

When thinking of David I see him as a young lad, a student of mine, in the church school at 19 Parker St. in Halifax. He, Sharon and Roy would arrive in town early and often escort me to school in the morning. It was a pleasure having the family as students, and David often kept things lively. It was very sad to learn of David's passing and we will now have to wait for that great meeting above. Wishing God's comfort for each family member. Janette Dooks (Matthews)

God Bless

Dorothy and Family, sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. He was a great neighbour and we will miss his enthusiastic chats while dog walking on Longards or boating out the cove to mackerel fish. Our sincere sympathy. Pat and Rollie Swim.
