STENHOUSE, John David “Dave”

passed away from us on August 15, 2012. Dave was born April 13, 1949 to Lorraine and George Stenhouse in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. At age two he became a lifelong resident of Spokane and the surrounding area. He attended Stadium Grade School, Glover Jr. High, and graduated from Shadle High School in 1967. He received an AA in Business and Personal Finance and another in Psychology from Spokane Community College. Dave married the love of his life, Elizabeth Brincken, in June of 1968. They had two children, Sean (Melanie) and Sara. He enjoyed photography, travel, and fishing, but most of all his friends and family. He was especially proud of his granddaughters, Alita and Kacee and was looking forward to the birth of his first grandson, Landon. Dave is survived by his wife; children; grandchildren; sister, Lynn Barnhart and brother, Jim Stenhouse; also his beloved nieces and nephews along with a large group of “his” kids. “His” kids were the many young people who found a wise and generous father figure at Dave’s house. His friends and family are gathering for a celebration of his life on Tuesday, August 21 at 4:00pm at the Good Samaritan Community Center, 17028 E. 8th Ave., Greenacres, WA 99016. Private family inurnment, with military honors, will precede the celebration.
