  3. Sharron, we are so sorry that you are going through this. Your husband was an incredible and joyous man and is missed.

    We remember the first time we met Dave, where we all went to a comedy club in Bournemouth. It was clear to see that although you had not been dating long that it was true love and this man with his cheeky twinkly eyes had stolen your heart.

    Dave was a great friend and made us laugh with his witty sense of humour. We enjoyed numerous cake-eating and charity shop book searching adventures where Keith and Dave both had a man bag each to hide their ill-gotten gains of some random book about a footballer or the likes when Sharron and I were looking in the river having a gas waiting outside the shop. When Keith’s hands were out of service for a short while post carpel tunnel op Dave was there to hide his loot!

    There is much love in our hearts for you both and you are in our thoughts.

    With much love
    Kate and Keith x

  6. Dave you have been a great mate ever since 1972 and we shared many laughs, not difficult since we shared a very similar, daft sense of humour. A love of rock music was also a passion we shared as well football. You were always there to lend an ear when needed, always supportive when needed and first and foremost,always a very good friend. It’s so unfair that you have been taken so soon.

    Our thoughts are with you Sharon at this very sad time.

  10. In the relative short time we’ve known each other Dave, a bond was grown and a true friendship was formed. Saddest condolences to you Sharron and family and friends of Dave.

  11. I knew Dave for thirty years pretty much, we worked together at Hampshire County Council and spent some great times both there and after work, going for a curry and then on to see a band many times. He was one of the nicest, most decent guys I’ve ever known and I can’t believe he’s gone. I take some comfort that he spent the last years of his life with Sharron and became part of her family…good luck mate.

  13. Dave, a wonderful constant throughout my career at Hampshire. You were always there to give advice, provide a shoulder to cry on and most importantly to share a joke with. Forever calm, you are definitely a man I looked up to. I’m delighted you shared your retirement with Sharron and became a part of her family. This warms my heart. XOX
