In memoriam

It is with regret that we share the death of Dawei Xiao, also known as David, who passed on August 16, 2020, climbing the mountains he called home.

David was born in China, and immigrated to Calgary with his parents at the age of 12. He earned his bachelor of mathematics in actuarial science in 2015 from the University of Waterloo but his yearning for the Rockies brought him back to Calgary, where he was hired by Intact Insurance as an actuarial analyst in the P&C insurance area. He passed his actuarial exams in quick succession, becoming an FCIA in 2020 while also cultivating his passion for the outdoors.

David was generous with his time and energy toward many causes he felt strongly about. He is remembered by his family, friends, and co-workers. Donations in his honour may be made to the Outdoor Council of Canada or to the ALS Society of Alberta.
