Obituary of David Lorne Greenfield





Our friend David Greenfield died on Thursday, April 18, 2024 after a lengthy hospitalization. He will live on in our hearts as a man dedicated to the environment, social justice, and peace. He pursued these passions through activism in political, civic, and religious groups, including the Council of Canadians, Canadian Friends Service Committee, Climate Justice Saskatoon, the Saskatoon Peace Coalition, and the Saskatchewan Green Party.

In 2023, David was recognized by the Celebrating Seniors Volunteer Awards in the category of "Advocacy Individual". As noted on the awards' website:

          One of his supporters says "Dave is a steadfast leader and advocate who has impacted many lives during his decades of service to his community."

David was a long-time member of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), having attended Meeting for Worship since the 1990s. He will be missed by Friends/Quakers across Canada and especially by those of us who attended Saskatoon Meetings for Worship with him.

At David’s request, he will be cremated, and his ashes interred at Woodlawn Cemetery. A Memorial Meeting will be held on May 12th at 3:00 pm at the Unitarian Centre, 213 2nd. St. E. Everyone is welcome. The link for tthe livestream will be activated at 2:45 pm.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that you consider making a donation to one of the following: the Council of Canadians; Canadian Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers); Canadian Friends Service Committee; or another organization that upholds David’s concerns for environmental and social justice.
