It is with great sadness that the family of David Cottrell announces his sudden passing on March 31st, 2021 at the age of 67. Devoted husband to Jerilyn Cottrell (nee Frank). Loving father and step father to Abbey Cottrell, Ben Cottrell (Kiersten Andrew), Cara Smetana (David), Breanne Lessard (Jennifer Kortko), Nicholas Lessard and very proud Granpa of his six grandboys, Ryan, Evan, Cameron, Nolan, Zachary and Kinley. Predeceased by his parents Ben and Bernadette Cottrell. He will be greatly missed by his brothers Mark Cottrell (Susie), John Cottrell (Cheryl) and also his in-laws, Randy Frank, Greg Frank (Simone), and Susan Frank (late Dan Frank). Sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
Dave will be remembered for the immense love he had for his family and friends. He was also an avid golf watcher, loved to travel and read, and as we know, was famous for his homemade Caesars and Eggnog. He also loved being on the water be it ocean or lake.
A celebration of Dave’s life will take place at a time when all of us can once again gather safely. In the meantime, we are permitted to have visitation and it will take place at the Doolittle Chapel of Carson Funeral Home, 54 Coldwater St. E., Orillia (705) 326-3595 on Monday April 5th, 2021 from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 pm.
