<div itemprop="description">It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dave Topolniski (42) on January 9, 2022. <br> <br>Devoted partner of Erin Fagen, son to Jim and Maryanne (Boyle), and brother to Justin. Also mourned by his grandparents Ken and Cathy Boyle, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends. <br> <br>Dave passed away peacefully in his sleep early Sunday morning after a long and courageous battle with heart disease. <br> <br>We would like to give thanks to all the family and friends who encouraged and comforted him this past year. It meant everything to him. <br> <br>We are incredibly grateful to the dedicated staff at the Jewish General Hospital, especially his surgical team, cardiac care team, and infectious disease team. Everyone there treated him with such care and devotion. A donation fund to the JGH has been set up in his name, and funds will go to the Cardiology and Infectious Disease divisions. Please follow this link to contribute: <br> <br>https://jghfoundation.crowdchange.co/14038/page/335945 <br> <br>Dave moved through the world treating everyone with kindness and trying to do the right thing at all times. He believed in standing up for those who didn’t have a voice and would help others at the drop of a hat. To know him was to be immediately won over by his bright smile and generous heart. Once you were friends, he was your friend forever. His loss will be felt and grieved deeply in so many hearts and lives. <br> <br>Due to the current pandemic crisis, funeral and visitation capacities are limited and attendance information will be relayed privately. <br> <br>For those not in attendance a live-stream option will be offered. Please refer back here for a link once available. The funeral service will take place on Monday, January 17th, 11:00 – 11:30am. <br> <br>https://funeraweb.tv/diffusions/44155 <br> <br>A Celebration of Life event will be planned for this spring, which will hopefully allow for more attendees. We want to make sure that everyone who wishes can mourn and celebrate his life together, safely. <br> <br>Dave was a unique and beautiful soul. He will be deeply missed. <br> <br></div>
