My condolences to Norma Jean, the rest of David's family and of course his 100 Huntley Street family.
David I will miss your kind, thoughtful and simple ways of presenting and sharing the gospel.
It was only a few weeks ago that I watched as you were interview by your granddaughter. I was delighted to see and hear from you.
David you will be missed but you spirit will live on in the lives of those that you have touched in an indelible way. I am one of those recipient. Thanks you as your sweet soul rest in the arms of Jesus.
I was saved and taught by 100 Huntley Street watching your program in July 1977. Still watch it. Through God's grace your program saved many lives. Say Hi to God for me.
I became a believer from listening to David many years ago and became a partner. He was such a good man of God and I admired him greatly for his faith and good works. He his now in the arms of his Lord. I pray for his family and keep them in my heart. Many thanks David!!
For your teaching. I was just new when I first seen you on TV. You were my inspiration to learn more.
MAY YOU REST IN PEACE AT THE PRESENCE OF OUR LORD JESUS.
To the Mainse Family
May God fill your hearts with praise and thanksgiving for the incredible privilege of calling David Mainse husband, father, grandpa, great-grandpa. I didn't know him well, but his books and presence at Crossroads touched me deeply.
Shalom in Jesus,
I am sorry that you lost a friend
Sending sincere condolences, heartfelt prayers, also praising the Lord that he is now safe in the arms of Jesus after a life lived serving God with absolute honesty and integrity.

Thank you David Mainse
It has been a joy and privilege to work for you and with you and Norma Jean Mainse on 100 Huntley Street. I am praying for each member of your family.
Well done David
RIP David Mainse my eyes are full of tears, yet my heart is praising God knowing you are hearing "well done good and faithful one", I first met you at 12 years old while being seen at the counseling centre 100 Huntley Street, through the years I heard you speak, but remember you most for taking time from a flight home to stop in the Lakeshore to encourage and pray with me while our church endured a storm of a young community girl brutally murdered and dismembered, you felt lead to "show up" to pray and walk the sidewalk with me one rainy dark night reclaiming what had been lost by that act, recently we met at Braeside, he was interested in what we were doing at Farmtown for girls and if we still connected with his good friend Lorne Shepherd. When we shared that we were working in Anti Trafficking because girls in Canada were on "our watch" and needed help. He gave me one of those big smiles, a fierce hug and prayed with his hand on my shoulder, then expressed his whole life had been about being On Watch for Jesus in Canada...He said I was a wonderful daughter to my Heavenly Father and encouraged me to keep the good fight.
I have no more words other than to say our prayers will follow in the days months and years ahead for all your family David Mainse and Norma Jean too as our Nation both Mourns and Celebrates together.
I lost my mother to breast cancer when I was 18 and had been working for Crossroads for only 4 months. Unbeknownst to me, David went all the way from downtown Toronto to Scarborough to visit my mother in hospital. It was only later when I visited Mum myself, that I learned of his visit. As a faithful viewer of 100 Huntley Street it meant the world to her. I have never forgotten his kindness and never will. Well done thou good and faithful servant...well done!!
David was an incredible man and we feel so blessed that we got to know him on a personal level during our trip to Israel and in visits he made to Swift Current (cross Canada tour) after that. We have many fond memories of time spent with David, Norma Jean, Ron and Ann while in Israel. David had a way of making you feel so special and loved. Kevin wanted to share that he remembers when David had a nap on his shoulder during one of the bus rides between places visited. We so enjoyed all the stories he shared on the bus about life in the Mainse household (the monkey stories were so funny). He will be missed greatly as he was a great Christian leader in Canada. We extend our deepest sympathies to Norma Jean and all the family. We are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. Love Kevin and Melanie Zerr
A truly amazing legacy and visionary gone home. David's impact and mentorship has been felt by so many. Prayers for the entire family!
David will always be in our thoughts and prayers. We experienced his love of God first hand when he was with us on our first trip to the land of Israel and it will forever be one of the best memories that we have experienced. Our condolences to the entire Mainse family on David's going home to be with our Lord.
We have a lost a truly great soul.
