In Memoriam

David Guttman - McRoberts Law Office LLP - Corporate Law Winnipeg, Manitoba

David Guttman
(1960 – 2014)

It is with great sadness that McRoberts Law Office LLP mourns the passing of one of the firm's longest tenured associates. On July 12, 2014, after a brief but stoic battle with oesophageal cancer, David, succumbed to his illness while surrounded by friends and loved ones on the Palliative Care Ward of St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

David graduated from Robson Hall Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba in 1985 receiving his Bachelor of Laws Degree and was called the Bar of the Law Society of Manitoba in 1986, the same year he joined McRoberts Law Office LLP.

David is remembered at the firm for his infectious smile, outgoing and cheerful disposition, zest for life, love of sports and his knack for issuing nicknames.

David was predeceased by his spouse, Liz, who also died from cancer in 2008 at the age of 46. David is survived by his daughter, Rachel, his son, Daniel, and his father Sandor. Our hearts go out to David's family whom we consider to be extended members of the firm's family.

David took great pride in being a lawyer. He was a strong advocate for his clients and counseled zealously on their behalf. David cherished and revered the privilege of practicing law. He acquitted himself very well in fulfilling his duties to his clients and the profession. He is greatly missed but fondly remembered.
