"I'll always remember Dave's colourful and forthright humour, a shock at first but soon appreciated and never forgotten. A successful man in business but even more successful in creating such an amazing family with Viv. Thanks for the laughter."

This tribute was added by Jem Huckfield on 30th December 2012

"There was certainly never a dull moment with you around, Dave, thanks for 30 years of colourful stories! You and Viv brought three very unique, thoughtful, kind and funny children into the world- there are many who will thank you for that for years to come.
See you on the other side. Jem"

"To Uncle Dave,
I didn't spend much time with you, but I will always remember that wonderful (and exciting for a young lad) day you rowed us across the river to the pub and we spent a lovely afternoon in the pub grounds.
So sorry you had to leave before we could meet again.
Steve"

"To my big "kid" brother. Dave. You leave behind so many happy memories. You led a very special life with a very special wife.  With Vivi you raised three wonderful children.  You and your "Scouse +" sense of humour will be missed by us all.  Time now for you to catch up with brother Gerry. Hopefully you will watch the Reds together from the roof of the Kop at Anfield.  God Bless you Dave"

"It took me a bit of time to get used to your somewhat forthright ways and direct sense of humor! Once we knew each other though, you would give me a look; a wink, a smile and a tip of the head and we were on the same wave length. Thank you, sir, it is an honor to have known you."

"Here's to my Dad,
Opinionated, awkward, steadfast, sharp, generous, funny, outrageous.
He had many quirks and qualities and certainly did things his own way.
Always happy to put up with me for at least half an hour!  Miss him already. xx"
