David took early retirement from being factory manager of the WD & HO Wills cigar factory to follow his great interest and study.
The Wakefield ceramic fairs took him all over the country and thus he made many friends and contacts.
One trip took us from Newton Abbot then Oxford, Derby and Edinburgh, all with two large dogs in the caravan and in constant pouring rain.
David’s love of his subject and genial personality gained him numerous friends, which was the most important part of his life. He loved the subject, but the personal connections meant everything to him.
There will be a service of thanksgiving in the spring/summer and anyone interested can contact my daughter Lucy by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
