David was a very kind and generous person, he cared for people on the street although he had nothing himself. His last wish was to give the gift of life and his heart is now beating somewhere in London, Ontario.
The Eagle family would like to thank the Sault Area Hospital ICU staff including the Dr’s involved and nurse Michelle. They would also like to expressing their sincere appreciation to the person that called the police and attended to David’s needs until help arrived.
Thank you also to the Police Services and the Experts who are continuing to help resolve and bring due justice that is owed to Dave in this tragic incident. You are all doing a great job.
