d. 7 Nov 2017
Originally from Kent, David recently moved to Dunblane immersing himself in the community. He learned to ring in Warwickshire for the millennium but the band did not flourish. He took up ringing again and was ringing call changes and striking well. He always livened up the conversation in the pub recounting tales.
David was an engineer by trade and his greatest passion was for his 1902 Benz, which had been in the family since 1934 and was his pride and joy. He was delighted to be participating in the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run in October. Sadly the car was involved in a serious collision and, although the passengers have recovered from their injuries, tragically David did not survive. He had become part of the band and we miss his good humour and cheerful disposition.
