Predeceased by his brothers Donald Pringle and Bruce Pringle. Dave will be missed by his extended family and large network of friends, including those at the Halton Outdoor Club, the Iroquois Canoe and Outing Club, and the Mohawk College Retirees Association. Dave was a graduate of the Ryerson Institute of Technology (1959) and the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (1964), obtaining P.Eng. designation through the Association of Professional Engineers of the Province of Ontario (1966).
