Dear Friends, It is with deep sadness that I must tell you that David passed away very peacefully at 15.10 this afternoon (22 August). He was comfortable and pain-free to the end and we were with him. The Memorial Service to farewell David will take place at St Laurence Church, Winslow, Bucks on Tuesday 2nd September at 2pm. If you are available and in the country and would like to join us, we would love to see you. With love from Liliane, Sarah, Fiona and Sam
Dave was a highly-respected pilot and friend to many. I first met him as a Flight Commander on IV(AC) Sqn in 1979. He’d already served a tour on the Red Arrows in their early days on the Gnat. After he left the RAF he had a long successful second career as a Boeing 747 Captain with Virgin Atlantic. He also took up marathon running and raised much money for charity.
Dave and Liliane have supported fourfax since the beginning. He will be missed by many.
