Dave was a man who enjoyed life, he loved music often breaking into song and could always be heard singing in the shower. Dave was very handy and was always willing to do a proper job so long as there were cups of tea. Dave loved to socialize and spent many happy hours playing bridge, chess, scrabble and poker. Dave had many hobbies but was passionate about cars and could often be found tinkering with his Jag., he also loved an evening at the track. Dave was a cricketer as a young man and loved the game, he enjoyed a game of golf and was also a good tennis player well into his later years. Dave will be greatly missed by all who knew him as he always brought laughter and great conversation to everyone.
