  2. Dear Friend David, Fun, infuriating, lovable, different. So very glad we knew you.

    Penny and Richard Mulshaw
  3. In memory of a special friend. David was kind, generous and a true Gentleman. Now playing on the ultimate course and scoring Holes in One in Heaven!

  4. “Give me a child until he is seven and I will show you the man.” – Aristotle

    Well, DDCH only had me as a school pupil for one year and anyway I was 11 at the time, but I appear to have turned out a reasonable sort of human being nevertheless, so maybe (very tenuously) David had a hand in that. Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt anyway, eh?

    Au revoir, sir.

    John Coolhurst
  5. Man you ‘Cained my hide, deserved I might add. RIP Sir, you had a part in making me the man I am and for that I thank you.

    But being taught English Literature in his study takes me back .. he always had a kind word & was one of the true characters of
    St John’s .

    Gods Speed Sir ..🇬🇧

  7. Always a great character at Parkstone Golf club with his immaculate appearence. I remember playing David in a match and as I walked around the hedge to the first tee the brightest yellow trousers I have ever seen greeted me. A real character. RIP.
