The Loss of David Hingsburger

David Hingsburger, a major advocate for the disability services sector, passed away on July 18, 2021. Hingsburger, of Salmo, British Columbia was a pioneer of change in the disability services sector and made people question their own practices and many people are living happier. Overall, the community had learnt from his insights, wisdom and wonderful humour. He raised important topics that needed to be addressed.

Everyone at CVS was saddened to hear this news. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones.

We would like to share a quote from David that is very special to us at CVS.

"Being in human services is cool because, in essence, you are paid to be human.  Paid to explore the commonalities of the human condition.  Paid to discover the incredible diversity of the human spirit.  Paid to spend the day doing something that matters; something that makes a difference.  Something that you are proud of.

Done right, you have chosen both a job and a passion.  Both a passion and a mission.  Both a mission and a purpose.  There are those who spend their lives looking for a purpose.  You will rise to it each morning.  And that’s a hell of a way to start the day."

- David Hingsburger 

David made a major impact and he will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace, David. (12/21/1952 - 7/18/2021)
