It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of David Clarence Rideout, on January 23, 2020 after a long courageous struggle with many health issues. He leaves behind his daughter Jodie Rideout, son Hardy Rideout; their spouses and grandchildren Jack, Ella, Lukas, and Alex. After moving from Newfoundland to Ontario in 1969, he began a lifelong career in the automotive aftermarket, cumulating in the establishment of several successful small businesses in Milton, which he ran from 1974 until his retirement. David was devoted to his immediate family as well as his very large extended family. He was such a proud and loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He is predeceased by his parents Hardy and Dorothy Rideout and stepmother Violet Sanger. He is also predeceased by siblings Dorothy, Clarence, Edna, Maisie, Beryl, Norma, Ruby, Doreen, Hardy, Marjory and Terry. He leaves behind his sisters Shirley Williamson and Joan Sweeney, along with many nieces and nephews. He will be dearly missed by step siblings Roy and Marge as well as the whole Sanger family. At David’s request, cremation has taken place.

The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, January 28th 2020 at Holy Rosary Church 139 Martin St. Milton, ON at 11:00 am with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made in David's name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society.

Dear Hardy & Jodie,
We are so sorry on the loss of your Dad. Dave was such a kind, wonderful man. We thought the world of him like so many others who met him in the automotive business. He always went above & beyond to help in any way he could. RIP Dave
Bob & Susan

Jodie and Hardy, we are saddened about the passing of Uncle David and Aunt Pat. They were both gentle people. I remember David coming to our house when we were kids. He loved to tickle us. He was funny and loved to make us kids laugh. When we came to Toronto as young adults Pat and David were so good to us. I remember David taking us to the CN Tower. That was a big deal back then. Love to all

Our fondest memories are playing marathon Wizard card sessions at the last family reunion. Uncle David seemed to win most games, even when you were sure you had him beat he would win. I honestly think he would let you win a hand or two just so you’d feel like you had figured his game, and play another one. But guaranteed he’d beat you again, and again!

And each time he’d give you a cheeky smile, with a twinkle in his eye.

On Uncle David’s visits to England we always went for walks across the hills and along the sea, making sure we included a pub to quench our thirsts. In the evening he and I would look for a card game in town! Of course he won those games and the locals weren’t upset.

He’d just flash them a cheeky smile, with a twinkle in his eye.

Uncle David will always be remembered as a wonderful person and an important part of the Rideout family.

Paul, Sarah, Luke and Joe Rideout
