Thoughts

David was the first person we met when we moved to Fareham in 1981, arriving out-of-the-blue on our doorstep with a teapot and two mugs - and an invitation for something stronger later. In the darkness he couldn't see me properly, though i could see him and, as he introduced himself as as one of our new neighbours, he nearly dropped the tray when I greeted him as a term-mate and friend from Dartmouth. Our families became and have remained good friends - his kindness and generosity were well-know - Lucy particularly remembers his calm and reassuring drive to hospital at 0600 when she was in labour with our first child. We will miss him. Paul & Lucy Docherty

David was one of my closest friends and the person who taught me 'life is not a race' and that 'my timing was lousy.' He shared many naval stories and it was a pleasure to listen. He taught me how to sail and that silence could be more powerful than words. A true gentleman and so dedicated to the work he did for the community. No words can explain how much I miss him and I will treasure the friendship we had. My love and thoughts go out to Sue, Fiona and Jo. RIP my special friend. xxx

David and I worked on FOST staff together and shared an office. I always appreciated his calm and unflustered approach to how different people and teams learned. He was a most helpful colleague and a warm hearted man. Best wishes to you all, Adrian Nance
