David Glen Richardson was a respected member of Calgary’s auto community and an avid disc golfer. David, who died in 2015 at the age of 42, grew up in Calgary and earned a Commerce degree with a specialization in Entrepreneurship. In 2012, David joined his father Glen and brother Todd in the family automotive business, Charlesglen Toyota Scion.
While he loved a traditional game of golf, David started playing disc golf in 2013. He would play two to four times a week – in sun, rain, or snow – year round. Disc golf gave him not only the physical and strategic challenges of regular golf, but also strengthened his always-powerful connection with nature. He shared his disc golf games with his dogs – walking them, while playing a course at the same time – and with his wife Treasure and his friends. His home course was at Baker Park, but David played courses throughout Canada and the U.S., played at night with glow discs, and delighted in made-up courses thrown down makeshift on a farm. The game was fun, environmentally friendly and accessible to everyone.
David’s beloved family, his friends and his business associates are proud to honour David’s memory by supporting a sport he loved, and by sharing it with fellow Calgarians.
