David L. Giroux, 47, died as a result of an ATV accident at Unity on March 29, 2005.

At the family’s request, David was cremated. There will be a gathering of friends at Unity at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Water Hole in Unity.

David was born at Skowhegan, Maine, on Dec. 14, 1957. He lived in many places during his life, but when he moved to Unity nearly 12 years ago, he decided he had found his “home.” He was an avid hunter and trapper all of his life. Those who knew him, will miss him greatly.

Survivors include his mother, Shirley Woods of Cornville, Maine; his father, John Giroux Sr. of Moscow, Maine; brother, John Giroux Jr. of Solon, Maine; and his second family, his aunt, Glennys Bottoms of Baker City; cousins, Sue Ann Bottoms and Gary Court of Corvallis, Bill Bottoms III of Baker City, Jodi Bottoms Nickerson of Baker City and her children, Lane Duncan, Greg Guardini, and Kaylin Nickerson of Troutdale, Josh and Tammy Summers of Donnelly, Idaho, Devon and Stacia Nickerson of Baker City, Mari Bottoms and Tony Martin of Baker City and their children, Kate Wisdom of Cove and Brad Bottoms of Baker City.
