Been sitting here watching the thread grow and it has brought tears to my eyes but at the same time a little smile keeps on trying to emerge when i see the good that David brought to alot of people emerging.
My fondest or funniest memories of David where as follows..
At the Anglesey trackday last year John W offered me a bed for the night as he had booked a family room at the Hotel where the majority of track day entrants were staying - he had warned me however that he had a slight problem with snoring
- i just laughed this off and thought to myself how bad can it be - a bit of snoring - pah
Well later that evening during dinner and drinks David was also offered a bed for the night seeing as Johns room still had a spare - he gratefully accepted as camping locally was the alternative
- David didnt mention however that he too could snore for the England team
The night progressed and bedtime beconned - John was first off to sleep and the noise was like nothing ive heard before - a sort of Walrus cry/Animal in distress and this had me and David laughing like schoolboys - i now realised i had made a grave error in the amount of noise that could be produced by the big man John
However all was not lost because as David soon dropped off it became apparent that the two of them snoring in stereo was enough to overcome me placing tissue in each ear and sleeping under the pillow - i had never heard anything like it and once id stopped laughing it dawned on me that i wasnt going to get much sleep at all
The man was a great friend and im just sorry that i didnt spend some more time with him before this tragic end to his life.
