sadly i have to announce that my good friend David Guest has passed away after a short illness. he went peacefully surrounded by his family at 1.30am this morning.he was known by many in the film collecting community. with many buying and dealing with him. i myself have known David for over 25 years. i will miss him terribly. my thoughts are with his wife Elaine and his family at this sad time. R.I.P. David. Paul x

Very sad news indeed Paul and my thoughts are with his family and his close friends like yourself too - a peaceful passing is the best he could have hoped for with such an illness. He was certainly a larger than life character who lived life to the full and he will be greatly missed.

Sincerely, Kevin.

So sad. Although David told us at Blackpool that doctors told him there was no hope any more, there is always something inside us that doens't want to believe the worst will happen. Hope David didn't suffer too much the last weeks.

That's very sad; at least he managed to see Christmas. I had some very good films from David. My thoughts are with the family.

So sorry to hear this extremely sad news. I think it makes David's remarkable efforts to make his last Blackpool such a great success all the more humbling, as he clearly had even less time left than expected. I'm sure that all Blackpool regular attendees will always be grateful to David and his family for the last eight years, during which an event that was previously in decline became significantly better and more popular.

Very sad to hear this. Deepest condolences to his family. Only started delving into 16mm last year by purchasing a serviced, reliably-running NT1 from him. Hope to run something on it tonight in his honour. R.I.P.

Such sad news.
We will all miss David and his postings on the Forum. I have bought many films over the years from him and I will remember him every time I walk past the stack of films which came a couple of years ago at a bulk bargain price.
R.I.P.
