David James Congram, 78, of Purley, England, passed away unexpectedly on September 10th, 2021.
David was born on August 30th, 1943 to Cyril and Margery.
As a young man, David excelled at mathematics and woodworking, life skills that drove his career and hobbies respectively. His career commenced at an insurance company in London, England, where he also began his studies into actuarial science. David enjoyed starting several woodworking projects for his children and grandchildren; it was completing them, that he was often challenged with.
During a trip to Canada, David found opportunity to progress, and relocated to continue his career as an actuary. David enjoying not only working with his colleagues but also taking time to give back to his profession. Well respected, David was a Fellow of the Canadian Institute of Actuaries, Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries (UK) and member of the American Academy of Actuaries and served on many of their working groups in Canada and internationally.

After retiring, David spent his time volunteering with the Canadian Celiac Association sitting on their Boards, travelling with his wife, and spoiling his four grandchildren as much as possible. David also took it upon himself to learn music and fish, not quite mastering either one of them, but bringing all his energy and enthusiasm each and every day.
