Ilene Borden - 19 days ago

How I met David. Picture this... A big handsome guy walks out of the gym looks at me in the pool smiles and says “Hi Honey”. I say “Hi”. Very brief pause ...”Are you my wife ?” The first of many laughs. David was the life of the party, a brilliant Kibitzer. I was lucky enough to see the true Mensch that he was. He was inclusive, a picky eater who loved his kasha, warm and welcoming. He was very kind to me. I could see how much he adored and loved Sandy. He was very aware of his good fortune to have such a steady ,beautiful inside and out, perfect partner. To see him with Ivy was a joy. Although I only met David recently I will miss him very much.

Philip Fainer - 19 days ago

Dear Hendler family, Though not a close friend of David's, I knew him for most of my life. We went to elementary and high school together and in later years we used to meet up at the Beth Ora Synagogue on the high holidays. His smiling face and quick wit were constants throughout his life. I will never forget his amiable disposition and warm greeting every time we ran into each-other. His infectious smile will be sorely missed. He was a blessing to all of us who were fortunate to have known him.

Dear Sandy and the entire Hendler family It is with profound sadness and shock that I offer you my condolences. David was a shinning light that brightened up the room when he came in. Being friends with David was always an adventure. I never knew how he was going to make me laugh each time I was with him. If I ever wanted to laugh for 10 minutes I only needed to be with David for 5. I hope his memory will always put a smile on your faces. May he rest in peace

Please accept my sincere condolences. I thought I would let your families know that although it was a long time ago , and we lost touch, I was one of the many lucky high school friends who were fortunate to be around David’s big, warm personality and wit . Always made us laugh and always remembered.

Larry and Alma Herman - 21 days ago

Dear Sandy, Matthew and Zachary, David was a dear and close friend of mine starting in our late teens, continuing through our 20's and 30's. As often happens, life circumstances drew us apart, but not our deep care for each other. When my Dad died in 2015, David was there for my family. Although we hadn't stayed in touch for some time, he reached out to my then 90 year old mother and offered to help her with anything, knowing that her children did not live in Montreal. David's sudden passing reminds Alma and I of how ephemeral life can be, and we feel remiss in our not having made the effort to remain closer. May David's memory be a blessing. Larry and Alma Herman

Dear Sandi and the entire Hendler Family, we send our heartfelt condolences on the sudden and untimely passing of your beloved David. Ronnie remembers David as a young boy from elementary school. When playing Red Rover, they would let go of their hands when it was David’s turn to “come over”. He was a force to be reckoned with even as a child. How he adored his late parents, siblings, friends and most importantly, Sandi and his boys! He will be missed not only for his giant presence and sense of humour, but for his huge heart. Much love, Judi and Ronnie

Sandy baylin - 23 days ago

David is part of my childhood memories of our St. Laurent ‘enclave’. I particularly remember his role as ‘bouncer’ at Beth Ora as he dutifully kept the doors guarded during services to keep the noisemakers out in the hall. It’s funny how we keep certain memories with us over the decades; a strong one being his warm and smiling greeting to my mother (the other Freda) as he passed our seats during the high holidays. My mom would beam at his acknowledgment of her. This small act of kindness remains in my heart, as strange and insignificant as it may sound. May he Rest In Peace.

Dear Sandy, Matthew, Zachary and extended family, Stephen and I were so sad to hear that your beloved Dave had passed away. Dave was someone I loved running into. He always made me smile and laugh! What a guy! My late father, Eddie Davis and Dave used to really enjoy each other's company. I believe they met while swimming at the Y many years ago . Since they both enjoyed making people laugh and were both part of the "Shmatta" world they were a perfect match! How they loved to schmooz and kibittz over lunch at Beauty's. I wish you all strength at this difficult time. May your wonderful memories help ease the pain of your great loss and may the shared memories of others warm your heart. Wendy and Stephen

My heart goes out to you Sandy and to the Hendler family on the untimely passing of your beloved David. I met David when I was in my 20’s and I have many fond memories of him and of fun times we spent together. We lost sight of each other for many years but it was so nice to reconnect years ago in Ste Agathe, and to see David as your loving devoted husband. David was unique and unforgettable. The mention of his name always has and will continue to put a smile on my face. I hope your memories of him will help give you strength at this most difficult time, please accept my deep condolences.

Mark Braiter and Family - 23 days ago

Condolensnses from the Braiter family in Toronto. David's passing caught us all by surprise.I have very fond memories of David as the Braiter and Hendler families spent much time together when we cousins were young. I remember David coming by my house and letting me drive his corvette when I was only 15. David was my go to person whenever I wanted to get my hands on tickets to see a rock concert at the Forum. We also spent time together at Braiter Bros when I worked there summer’s. As many have mentioned, he had a good heart, and a sense of humour that made one chuckle, or not. He spoke his mind, and there was no doubt you knew how he stood. He will be missed.

Arlene Brownstein Chinks - 23 days ago

Dearest Sandy, Erica, Jill and Caroline, Matt and Zachery, I am deeply saddened at David’s passing. What comes to mind is how when we would have dinner together, David would stand up ready to leave. It didn’t matter that the rest of us were ready for dessert, David was done. This is what I thought of this morning when I got the unexpected call. Last night I was sending David his much loved Mandel bread but David didn’t wait for the delivery this morning. David was ready to go and David lived life on his terms. He loved his Sandy and his family and friends. What you saw is what you got. David was true to himself and genuine to those around him. O hope you will continue to support one another and be comforted with the Togo’s times you shared . Rest peacefully now . Baruch Dayan Ha’Emet. Much Love , Arlene
