  2. Dave, you were such a troubled soul during the 3 years I knew you; you never quite recovered from the events of your life. Hope and pray that, now reunited with your dear twin sister, your Mum and your Dad, your soul will finally find the peace it could never find here. May God look on you in His Mercy. Until our time also comes, take good care xxx

  3. I stopped and chatted to Dave regularly, he was such a lovely man. He would look past his own circumstances and often ask after my family. Thoughts with all of his family at this time and all of those who like me will really miss him.
    Thank you Dave for bringing joy into our lives.

  6. Dave,
    What a gentleman he was! I used to work I. Boots wareham over the years. Dave was always a good friend to me, always asked how me and my children were and was always so polite! I spent many of lunch breaks on the bench with him having a good laugh and the time flew past when I was with him. He will be greatly missed and always within my thoughts. Sweet dreams my friend xx

  8. Dave would always chat with me at the Co-op… Saying for a Scouser I wasn’t that bad… He sat with my mum on the bench chatting to her keeping her company while I shopped.. A really nice man. Rest now mate.

  9. Having met David some 12 years ago we shared many a happy moment talking fish, fishing, the countryside and life over beer in the Anglebury. He had such a sharp whit and sense of humour he was always great company and made me laugh. One evening we talked about how we both liked olives, the next day he arrived with a big pot for us both to enjoy over a beer. I will miss him deeply on my visits to Wareham.

    RIP Dave, go catch the big one!

  11. Dave will be much missed in Wareham. He always asked after my kids and my Mum when she was still here. Dave was my secret weapon in the carnival odd item competition and helped me on the ones I was stuck on. The town really won’t be the same without him. I hope you have found peace now Dave.

  12. Whilst shopping in Wareham it was always interesting to chat to Dave if he wanted to and I’m sad that he had so many regrets about the latter part of his life. I remember on one occasion when in North Street with some of my granddaughters he brought to our attention something that was happening on the Quay because he thought the girls might be interested. He was a kind, gentle man.

  20. Dave
    Wareham truly isn’t the same without you, I’ll never forgot all the times you had ago at me for not smiling as I was walking down the road, I can still hear you now “smile it might never happen” I never really knew what you meant but I do now and I’ll keep smiling just like you told me to! Rest in paradise my friend until we meet again xx

  21. David hope you can now find peace up there with Nan, Grandad, Brian and Brenda may you rest in peace.

    Will miss seeing you sat on the bench when I was working in Wareham.


  22. My wife and I frequently chatted with Dave in the streets of Wareham. He loved our little dog Fudge. One day Dave stopped us and handed me a small item. It was a roll of doggy poo bags that we always have attached to Fudge’s lead. Dave had found it in Wareham, thought of us and picked it up to give to us the next time he saw us. We hope you have found peace Dave. We will miss you whenever we walk our dog in Wareham town. Keith and Angie x

  23. Moving from Zimbabwe to wareham with my son was really hard.
    Dave, you took time out for me and were always there to help and advise.
    When my vacuum cleaner broke you carried it from the end of north street to the end of south st.
    What a true gentleman.
    Rest PeaceFully my friend, your troubles are over now

  24. Wareham is not the same without David..He was such a character. He always had time to talk and tell you about his life. He never had a bad word to say about anyone. Last time I saw him opposite the co-op he didn’t seem right and wasn’t his usual talkative self. I automatically look outside the Anglebury thinking I will see him ( even though i know he has passed away)…but it doesnt seem the same not seeing David again..Rest in peace.

  25. Dear Dave, you were such a massive part of Wareham & loved by everyone you met….Will miss seeing you on your beloved benches…
    RIP Dear chap…..
