LIKAS, Algerd (David) Charles Passed away very suddenly at age 84, on June 9, 2013. Long time resident of Oakville. Born in Montvidu, Lithuania, he came to Canada and lived in Montreal from age 6 and then moved with his family to Ontario in 1973. Beloved husband of Micheline Likas (nee Bilodeau). Loving father of Michael A. Likas and Rosamund (Clarke). Father-in-law to Shelley (Walker-Likas) and Paul Gordon Smith. Always a consummate story teller, he was a kind and wise Granddaddy to Jessica, Danielle, Michael and Nicholas. In his professional career he was a true visionary. He was a designer and inventor with patents. David was part of the team of designers for the Canadarm and other government interests. He lived a very remarkably interesting and active life. A mechanical engineer by trade and highly regarded in his field with interests in swimming, life guarding, body building and an honorary Forest Ranger. He was a pilot, flying enthusiast and past member of CASARA, COPA, and Brampton Flying Club. But his main passion was boat designing and building. He enjoyed writing and sharing his knowledge and has written a number of articles. A mentor to many, he was a skillful, talented, and wise man whose kind heart touched so many, yet his Wife of 56 years and his family were his true devotion, and their spiritual enlightenment through his guidance will live on. David will be missed dearly, remembered fondly, and will certainly never be forgotten.
