David Michael Joseph Mimeault

November 11, 2018 27 Condolences Print Obituary

David Michael Joseph Mimeault, born April 21, 1957 passed away on November 8, 2018 at the Edmonton General Hospital at the age of 61.

Born the fourth of five children in Jonquière, Quebec, Dave travelled west to Alberta where his ambitions lay in the oil and gas industry. He returned to Quebec for post secondary education in environmental sciences before moving back across Canada to Edmonton for the second time. He found work with Alberta Carpet Cleaning where, unbeknownst to him, his future wife worked in the phone division of the same company.

Eventually meeting on a fateful day, their relationship took off, working together from that point onwards and moving back east to Ottawa together. The two of them started a business, enjoying the positives and enduring the hardships of being their own bosses. For the last time, they moved back out west and settled in Edmonton, Alberta where their ties to the community grew.

While Dave never pursued the oil industry, he was a hard worker both at and outside of work. He volunteered for numerous years on the Oliver Community Board, dedicated time as a hockey coach on the Knights of Columbus Pee Wee Columbians as well as a coach and eventual president of East Park Little League. Many of his great memories came from his involvement in youth sports, he genuinely enjoyed giving back to the community, and seeing kids grow and succeed. Dave’s first love was baseball and while an assistant coach on the East Park Orioles, Dave grew as a coach as much as the team developed as players and people.

He approached life with a bit of a unique perspective, he wasn’t afraid to tell things how they were, and as a result, you could get genuine feedback on ideas. He loved to reminisce about his childhood, growing up in a community with his numerous cousins, lifelong friends, and the shenanigans they got into.

He loved his wife Mary Ellen, Son Dalen, parents, sisters and younger brother very much, and when they had kids themselves, he loved being and uncle. He held his friends in the same regard as family, appreciating his relationships all the way to the end. He looked out for others, was selfless in that he would spend time listening, talking and helping others. Dave will be remembered for his laughter and the laughter he often caused in his friends and family, for all the times he offered sage advice, and for the never-ending reach of his love.

  6. I have many fond baseball memories that involve Dave and his dry humour. Especially when I shared numerous hours in the score booth during one particular tournament. It makes me smile when I think of that look he could give when he’d raise one eyebrow as he made some dry quip about something incredibly …. thought provoking! Thank-you for your years of service, Dave, but most especially, for all the kicks and giggles.

  10. I am so sorry for your loss Mary Ellen, Dalen, and extended family. Reading of the laughter in Dave’s obituary, I still remember well a ride in a white van driven by him (not sure of the number of passengers or even who they all were) in the Market area of Ottawa one evening way back when. Brings a huge smile to my face. Please know that so many thoughts, prayers, and love are being sent to you at this difficult time. Lucy & Myles

  27. I was shocked and saddened to hear the news. I worked with Dave and Mary Ellen more than 30 years ago at ACC and just decided to look him up today to see what he was up to. He gave me first job and he was a genuinely good guy. I never saw him treat anybody unfairly and had many good laughs with him. My condolences to Mary Ellen and Dalen and the rest of his family and friends. I hope your good memories provide comfort.
