David was a loving husband to Judith and proud father of Margareta and Hugh.  He will be remembered by many OWB as one of the founding members of the West Buckland Veterans Rifle Club and served for many years as President, shooting regularly at Bisley.  He also served terms as both President of the OWBA and  Secretary of the OWBA and held the Association together during some difficult times.  Additionally, he ran the London dinner for a period.  

He had lots of happy memories of West Buckland particularly his rugby and cross country runs so perhaps it is fitting that his passing coincided with this year's Exmoor Run.

His funeral will take place on April 17th in Teddington.

Our sympathies are with his family at this time.
