Nothing on Earth Will Ever Replace The Sound Of Your Voice Or The Smile On Your Face.
Peacefully at Leighton Hospital knowing he was loved by his devoted wife of 59 years Irene, loving sons Paul and Gary. Cherished grandchildren James, Victoria, Holly, Ruby and Sonny. Dave aged 79 years.
David was born on Monday 3rd March 1941 at Sefton General Hospital Liverpool, to proud parents Dorothy and George, the second child of four. Dotty, Beryl and the late Phyllis. He attended Lawrence Road School and enjoyed his time there, but after the death of his father at a young age and growing up with three sisters aged just 16 David joined the Navy and travelled the world a fantastic opportunity for a young man. Returning to Liverpool to visit family occasionally, a relationship grew with a childhood sweetheart a young lady named Irene Kirk, the relationship was strong enough to make Dave return to shore for good, and They married in All Saints Church Speke in 1961. Not too long after saw the birth of their first son David in 1963 but sadly Baby David only lived a very short time and although this broke their hearts, the arrival of a second son Paul in 1964 and a third, Gary in 1966 completed their family. Dave worked hard for his family spending time at Fords, Dunlops and The Bottleworks in Liverpool, but when the offer of a more secure future was offered the family up-sticks and moved to Winsford where he was employed by ICL and UPL until his retirement in 2006. Dave and Irene enjoyed socialising with many friends, and enjoyed Dancing and the occasional song when the entertainment wasn’t up to much. He was an avid Liverpool fan and was looking forward to them collecting the premiership trophy at the end of the season. So it’s with that in mind we remember the words that we will cherish forever. ” At the end of a storm there’s a golden sky, ” walk on walk on, with hope in your heart, and you’ll never walk alone.
