History Biographical
David Appotive (b. February 17, 1917 - d. December 30, 2009) was born in Zhitomir, Russia. He was the son of Abraham and Sarah (Viner) Appotive. The Appotive family; including sons David, Rudy, Joe and Ben, immigrated to Canada and arrived in Montreal around December 24, 1925 where they initially stayed with Viner relatives.

After high school, David apprenticed as a bookkeeper with Martin Levinson, Chartered Accountant. After working for S&S Auto Parts (Saslove & Stone) he enlisted in the Canadian armed forces and in the summer of 1942 was sent overseas along with brothers Rudy and Joe. David was assigned to the Royal Canadian Engineers. “They built bridges for the Canadian, British and American armies. They were bombed, shelled and lived through terrible times, especially in Holland”. He returned safely to civilian life in Ottawa and engaged in several business ventures. Before deployment in 1942, David married Edith Feldblum. They had four surviving children, Gloria, Sharon, Jeffrey and Donna and another that passed away. The Appotive Family attended Machzikei Hadas Synagogue.
