It is with great sadness to announce that we lost a very special person who was a huge impact to Northwood and it’s community. Dave Fenn was a tremendous person who took pride in volunteering his time to make Northwood what it is today. He was always there to lend his hands, his knowledge, his skills, and his time to Northwood and its employees. He made sure the hockey rinks and baseball diamonds were up to par and took much pride in doing so. He looked after everything at Northwood whether it was maintenance, hall rentals, sports, events, programs etc. If you ever stepped into Northwood you knew who he was. He was and will always be remembered as “Mr. Northwood”.
Rest In Peace Dave!
