Oh man, that is very sad news to hear :cry:
Such a corner stone to our community here. He was always present and willing to help with info.
My thoughts and prayers go to his family, whose loss is greater than ours.

At least his memory will live on in this forum through the continued adventures of Gus.

I've just returned from a holiday break to read this extremely sad news. Thank you Vicky for taking the trouble to inform us at what must be a very difficult time.

I never met Dave in person, but I felt I knew him through his posts on this forum and some email exchanges we had back in 2011 when I was looking for my first FB. I have Dave to thank for kindly volunteering to take a look at the car I was considering purchasing, as it was located not too far from him and many miles from me. Dave took Ellie along for the drive and spent some time looking at the car, kindly sending me some pictures and a very detailed report on its condition. Dave also said "my dear wife just sat in a camping chair in the sun and gave conversational support.....though we did both enjoy meeting John's wife." - John being the previous owner of the car who had sadly passed away, which was the reason for the car being up for sale.

Dave's report was enough to convince me to purchase KIMI 1 and I will always be grateful to Dave for taking the time to help out and allow me to purchase my first FB with confidence. It was clear from those emails, and Dave's posts on here that he had a deep passion for 1st Gen RX-7's. I think some of that passion must have rubbed off on me, having subsequently purchased two more 1st Gens!

Dave always struck me as a true gentleman - his unsolicited help to me and the manner of his posts on this forum bear that out. He will be sadly missed by me and the rotary community.

My sincerest condolences to Ellie, Vicky, family and friends.

You all have no idea how nice it is to read these posts, thank you all for your lovely words about Dad.

Please all rest assured that the Register is safe and will be securely handed over to Ian asap. Dad made me promise to get Ian to sign a confidentiality clause before I handed everybody's information over so I've printed him one off, we've also found some scraps of paper with reg numbers and car colours on so we'll give these to Ian and let him work out what they are.

Best wishes
Vicky

As relatively new to the forum i never met Dave but he always welcomed my posts and my spots enthusiastically.
It is very sad that one of the founders is no longer with us but it must be very hard for the family to deal with the passing of a much loved and respected man. RIP Codge

A sunny afternoon in South Yorkshire today saw Daves family and many friends lay him to rest. I attended to pay my personal respects to my mate and also to represent his many friends on this forum who viewed him with affection.
His 2676 posts on the forum will be part of his lasting legacy on here and he'll still be with us in our memories and through the continued adventures of Gus.
