Dave with new grandson Billy

David died whilst visiting our family in Australia - we travelled out following the birth of our new grandchild. He had been fighting bowel cancer for five years but was determined to make the long journey to be with his family. He took ill while there and died in Fremantle Hospital. He fulfilled his wish - he was with his family in his last days.

Three years this week since we lost you Dave. You were desperate to stay with us we all know. You are missed so much. Our plans and dreams for the future never happened. Rest in peace free from pain. Love you.

A Top Bloke!
by: Tracey

Dave was a loving, caring family man that enjoyed life to the full. He was a generous person and loved his family dearly. I always liked Dave and was glad to be part of his and Lin's life. Even though he is gone from this world, he will never be forgotten. Me and my family have lots of memories, that will never fade. To a great man, be at peace. We miss you loads.

My Brother
by: Jean

My elder brother, my rock. He made me laugh with his holiday mis-haps. I always had a feeling that he would not come home, but I am glad that you were all together. I knew once I heard the Cancer
word our time was limited.

Time is a great healer, and I know. Laugh about the good times, cry over what should have been
and enjoy life, you don't get a second chance.
