David (Dave) Barclay of Chepstow, passed away at the Hanover District Health Centre on Wednesday, July 26, 2017, at the age of 54, after a lengthy and bravely fought battle with cancer.

He also leaves behind his mother, Carol Barclay and two sisters, Leasa of Stratford and Andrea (Richard) Osborne of Walkerton. Dave will be fondly remembered by the Kelly family and many nieces and nephews. His pickled eggs and three bean salads at Christmas will be missed by most (but not all) of the Kelly family.

Dave's pall bearers are his longtime friends Jack Chou, Jim Dentinger, Pete Legace, Bill Pace, Bruce Osterndorff, and Steve (Chevy Lover) Wilhelm.
