Marnie, Mike & Monica, Shelley & Kelly, John & Leigh, Tom & Ashleigh and families . Our deepest condolences. I am honoured and blessed to have known Dave for over 40 years. Dave truly was a blessing in my life he always treated me like one of his own. Not only my boss for 25 years but a amazing friend. He did so much for the community of Acton that people were not even aware of always willing to lend a hand to anybody and help out in any way he could , yet was always so humble & kind and always a smile when you would see him. Dave was so very proud of his family when he spoke about you, he always had a Hugh smile and a glow on his face. Hold your memories close to your heart they will become your treasures and help you through the difficult days ahead. I know my memories of Dave are now my treasures. Dave was one of a kind and he will be greatly missed by many. Know you are all in our thoughts and prayers. Love Colleen, Willis, Robbie, Vikki and families xoxo
