Oh Dave :( what more can be said?

Through the ups and downs, you were one of ASN's true characters, as friendly in real life as you were feisty on the forum!


Thanks for everything Dave, it's been a pleasure.

RIP

I'm proper gutted about Dave. I am with Voorhees when he said that he's tried to reply a few times but couldn't bring himself to do it.

RIP Dave, you're a friggin legend :shake:

Deeply saddened to hear the news about Dave - we spoke a few weeks ago on the phone and there wasn't even a mention that he was ill. My thoughts are with his family

RIP Dave,

You will truly be missed on the forum, some serious banter was had with him. Had the pleasure of meeting him a few times and it was always a laugh.

Gazz, sorry for yours and the family's loss and my condolences to you all.

Hi guys thanks guys as most of u know Dave was my farther in law and like a dad to me over the past 5 years. Dave sadly passed away Friday the 13th after a long hard battle in ICU for several weeks due to his illness he went into hospital to Hv his lung cancer removed the operation was successful and as we all know Dave he came around from recovery singing and cracking jokes drinking coffee. Then he just took a turn for the worst then he cought pneumonia, ARDS ( adult respiratory distress syndrome ) also his lung wasn't coping he should not of died at the age of 44 he was way too young he was going to be 45 on the 18th June he past away so suddenly the hole thing is under investigation as it was an unusual situation as he was fine and awake an hour before he passed away.

Dave will be so missed by everyone he was a great bloke and would do owt for others he was a true legend loved his family and friends and loved his cars and partying. Me and Dave messed with our cars every weekend and he loved his s3 as most of u no his s3 is off the road with no engine in it as he was too poorly to put the engine back in so my mission is to drop the engine into it that's already been built by Dave we was just waiting for Him to get better but now all this im going to try my hardest to make Dave proud and get it back in and up and running for him he would love it only thing I carnt do is the fabrication of the down pipe so any help would be muchly appreciated. His family all want u guys to know there greatfull for the support it means a lot and welcome any body to the funeral (date still pending ) I'll keep u all posted when we find out. Let's give his a send off he diserves.

R.I.P Dave still carnt get my head around it mate. The home don't feel the same without you.Always be in my heart heaven has gained a true legend.

Feel free to message me anyone thanks

Gaz,

If you can let me know details of the funeral I will set it up as a meet within the Yorkshire region aswell.

I think it will make dave happy knowing that aload of S3's turned up to see him off properly....

RIP Dave. Didnt have the pleasure of knowing Dave personally as im still relatively new on here. From what ive read, sounded like he was a top guy and 44yrs old is extremely young to die.

My heavy heart goes out to the family, along with my thoughts and condolences. :s3addict:

R.i.p mate.

Had the pleasure of knowing Dave and meeting him a few times. I had a fair few bits from him and he was always happy to help where he could. Couldn't believe it when I heard the news a few days ago.

As a keen ASN fisherman, the forum and the pub have lost a very valued member.

Rip Dave, you were one of the most memorable characters on here. Dry sense of humour and above all you knew your stuff. You will be sadly missed. My heart goes out to your family at this unexpectedly sudden and distressing time

RIP, sir.
 
I feel a bit awkward posting here when i'm relatively new and never had any correspondence with Dave but of all the car forums i've been a member of over the years this is by far the most friendly and helpful, and after reading through this thread it's clear Dave was an integral part of that.

My best wishes to all his friends and family. RIP

Sorry to hear this, from what I've seen on ASN since I joined, everyone thought a lot of Dave. Dreadful news.

Sincere condolences to all his friends & family.
