1965 - 2019

It is with great sadness that the family of the late David Breen announce his passing at his residence in Grand Falls-Windsor, NL on August 19, 2019 at the age of 54. Dave was a longtime employee of TRA Atlantic. He is predeceased by his parents, John and Margaret Breen, brother, Tony Breen, and infant sister, Mary. Leaving to mourn with fond and loving memories are his brothers, Randy (Diane) of Gander, NL, Mike (Anne) of Norris Arm, NL, Jim of St. John’s, NL, Rob of Red Deer, AB, and Paul (Kelly) of Grand Falls-Windsor, NL, and sisters, Peggy of Victoria, BC, Cathy of Fort McMurray, AB, and Christine (Shawn) of Grand Falls-Windsor, NL. Also leaving to mourn are lots of nieces and nephews.

Our hearts are broken by the sudden death of our brother Dave. He will be missed by so many. Dave worked for many years at TRA Atlantic. The people there were his family as well. He began his TRA career as a helper on a truck. His work ethic there was evident. They hired him to work in the warehouse after the first TRA building burned down. He had been a dedicated employee ever since.

Dave loved a good game of cards and pool and was a regular at a few local bars. He was such a fun person to be around. There was always a joke to be told or a comment to be made that would make you laugh. He was always up for a good time. Dave was a kind and gentle soul and he will forever be in our hearts.

We will be having a celebration of Dave’s life at the Elk’s Club at 17 Beaumont Avenue in Grand Falls-Windsor on Saturday, August 31, from 2-4 p.m.

Condolences to the Breen family. I have a lot of childhood memories growing up on Greenwood Ave, just about all of us kids hung around together playing spotlight and other games. To Paul, Christine and the other family members, sorry for your loss.

To all the Breens I offer you my deepest condolences. It has taken me several days to gain the strength to visit this site. Several of you guys hung out with the Dwyer counterpart of equal age, but I dont know if any of you started hanging out on your first day of kindergarden. We walked home together and cut through the Foleys back yard, exchanged phone numbers and then used the phone for the first time, and talked for hours day after day. The storys I could tell for the next 20 years we hung out could fill a book.
Have a beer for Dave on me on the 31st and I will do the same. Love you all and best wishes Mike Dwyer

Condolences to the Breen family. Many great memories cruising around GFW in the Ford Escort with Dave. Whenever I brought the car back, Mom always knew that Dave was riding shotgun because she'd ask why the seat was all the way back ... "oh, Breen was in the front"! RIP Buddy.

So many fun times and memories of evenings spent around the table chatting and drinking tea in the Breen kitchen and Dave always with a smile and something nice to say to brighten you up .
