It came as a terrible shock to learn that Dave Kerwin died earlier today. He had been playing tennis and died in hospital. He was 84.
Dave Kerwin was a fixture in municipal politics for decades. He was likeable and engaging. I thought he was a terrific guy. When he stood down from Newmarket Council in 2018 he was the longest serving councillor in Canada.
At the time he said:
“Newmarket is tattooed on my soul.”
This is Dave with his wife Erika.
