It is with great sadness that I learned of Dave’s passing late last week at his home in Sydney. Our condolences go to his son Guy, daughter Margot, brother Fred and sisters Esther and Betty.
When I first set up the original Old Yorkist web site in 1995 Dave immediately offered his assistance and gave freely of the store of knowledge about the school that only he possessed. He took on the role of “keeper of the databases” and his comprehensive store of contacts grew and grew. We were in close touch over those 25 years, with Dave sending me regular updates for the “Where Are They Now” sections in particular.
I will miss his input and Christmas will never be quite the same for Old Yorkists world-wide without his annual Siku Kuu letters.
