Well what can I say that hasn't already been said - he got me into 16mm when I popped up to Ormskirk to buy my Bell and Howell 16mm and i've still got several prints that I haven't viewed yet - all from such a great showman. He was a genuine bloke and I am so pleased I got to socialise with him in Blackpool and acquire some great films from him.

My deepest sympathy to his wife and family,

R.I.P Mr Guest

One of the film greats that I never got to meet, and it seems like this came so soon. Condolences to all bereaved.

I didn't know David, but I know he was loved and respected in the film collecting community. May his soul rest in peace for eternity. May his family find peace.

Such sad news, and we knew was coming, yet difficult to actually grasp.

I can`t sort of get hold of it somehow.

David was a film dealer, but was often also very kind and thoughtful too.

I had a lot more nice friendly contacts and chats with David, than I ever bought films etc.

My thoughts are about David, and for his family.

Mark.

I never had the pleasure of meeting him, however I had the idea that David was a force of nature. It seemed he could get anything done once he set his mind to it. My deepest sympathies to his family and many friends.

I first read this very sad news yesterday on Facebook. Dave always had the knack of coming up with that film you thought you would never get. My deep condolences to all Dave's family and friends. That is yet another void that can never be filled and he is going to very sadly missed by a lot of people.

I am so sorry to hear this sad news. It was David who got me back into 16mm a few years ago with several excellent prints.

My thoughts and sympathies are with his family.

So sad to hear this news sooner than we expected but at least he died peacefully.

Tonight I will watch the 'Blackpool 2017' DVD in his memory and the hard work he gave in making it all happen.

I'm sure that David said at Blackpool that when he was given the news the doctors said he had three months. Assuming this was in October they were right and he had time to make the most of what he had left. I great pity he didn't have longer than expected.

RIP Dave.
