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.

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'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.
