  2. David, You are going to be so utterly missed but never ever forgotten. You really were taken much too soon from Nikki, Oscar, Jacob, Tait, Samuel & many many more. You started as a Boss, the best boss I’d ever had but became such a wonderful friend, along with your beautiful wife and gorgeous Oscar. You always had a smile, a little dorky dance step in your walk, a super quick, clever witty sense of humour, and made us laugh so many times. Mostly you truly were such a gentleman to all and so generous. This next journey you take better have some CC dry’s and a whole lot of fishing trips.I’ll still be saving every Turkish Delight I pull out for you. I’ll miss you Bossman. <3 Joooli

  4. Our fondest memories as kids were going to Nan and Pops place at Christmas or to Keepit Dam to see our Uncles, Aunts and Cousins. Our uncles were always keen for some football, wrestling and shenanigans and there was always plenty of laughs. Sincere condolences to Nicole, Sam, Tait, Jacob and Oscar.
    Someone once described grief is ‘just love with no place to go’ – I’m pretty confident you will land in plenty of hearts Uncle Dave always.
