I wish to convey my deepest sympathy to Pat and the family for the passing of David a very kind and gentle man who made my role in the LRU very easy. We will miss his glasses going dark in the sunshine and the patience shown to all players and officials while undertaking the role latterly in his time on the Management team. He always had time for the family of Rugby and was a stalwart of the Loughboroguh Rugby club.
Rest in Peace David.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Pat and family at this very sad time. We have very fond memories of working closely with David on the village website and also of speaking with him on a very regular basis around the village.

David will be greatly missed in the local community.

Michelle and I were very sorry to hear about David's passing and we would like to pass on our deepest sympathy to Pat and the family.
I had known David for many years through Leicestershire rugby, having had a few fun trips to Twickenham with them. We then moved to Wysall to find out that he lived just around the corner from us! I have extremely fond memories of David and he will be missed by many.
We apologise for not being able to attend on the day as it's a long way back from Devon but please accept our best wishes.

So sorry to hear of David's death. We used to chat at the Plough at Wysall, especially in the summer evenings, sitting outside on the lovely patio. We reminisced about our times when we worked together at the Abbey National, and he used to talk about you, his children and grand daughter.
I will miss seeing him there, and his stories about his gardening and trips to the USA.
