Memories of

Dad (2)

Dave Hanson

Dave Hanson 1939-2021

Our lovely Dad Dave was a great story teller.  Some of you were part of these stories and we would love you to share your fondest, funniest, most signifcant memory that you have of him.  This could be the first thing that pops into your head or you can take a bit of time to think about it.

As we are not able to join together with you to celebrate his life, this book will create a collection of tales and events for us to treasure.

Please make sure that you add your name to your message along with the time and place connected to this special memory.

We are already looking forward reading about his escapades!

With much appreciation

Tania, Janine & Davina (Dave’s daughters)

Your Dad and I became friends after becoming brothers-in-law, very quickly after a pub crawl on his first visit to Gib.  Since then, as you know, we met up in Hull and Nottingham as we alternately visited each other virtually all bank holidays. There followed many trips from The Viking Centre through Deer park …

Davina's Poem

Our Dad What can I tell you about our Dad? Down The Boulevard was where he grew up as a lad.    Surrounded by siblings, coming out of his ears, Sadly, many have passed over the years.   Still two sisters are with us and in-laws to boot, A family shindig was always a hoot! …

Dad Some words to describe my Dad: defiant, loyal, bold, fierce, supportive, principled, champion of the underdog, devout, funny, stubborn, quick-tempered, proud – especially of his 3 daughters One of my earliest memories of Dad was him teaching me how to ride a bike down the tenfoot at Cardigan Road, which consisted of him …

Christmases at grandad’s were the best. He would always have a chocolate santa waiting for all of us for when we arrived or some classic vegetable soup only he could  make ready right on time. Although his little Christmas tree always seemed to be on its very last legs, grandad always cooked up the best …

The first time I met Dave he was cutting the magnolia in Tania’s front garden – maybe 10 years ago. He looked at me and just a few seconds later we were joking and laughing. Wonderful! I liked Dave very much from the first moment, always having  a smile on his face and a …

The last time I saw Dave (virtually) he was 30ft up a ladder, fixing something on Davina’s roof. Grinning, fearless & unfazed, whilst Davina watched on petrified. And that’s exactly how I will remember Dave – a strong, protective, good old fashioned Father & Grandfather who loved & cherished his family dearly, and they …

I’ve met Dave at many of Davina’s family get-togethers since we both had our boys. What a kind, caring and funny man he was. Always happy with a cheeky or wry smile and plenty of stories. Clearly a wonderful family man, having raised three fabulous daughters and a great relationship with his lovely grandchildren. …

I remember Dave being a very cheerful, fun man. He always had a smile on his face, and was keen for adventure. When I met my good friend Tania at school I often went for sleepovers and parties at their house where both lovely Nina and Dave were very welcoming. I think it was …

Kelly and Lewis

Dave was a great neighbour to us and always helped us, first when we was doing our house up helping me when I was pregnant filling the skip and always putting our bins out every week. I would always try beating him to it to return the favour but didn’t get to much. A funny …

I have so many fond memories of my Grandad Dave, which were created around the world.  I travelled with him to Egypt, Australia, Thailand and of course Spain. Even though I was very young in some of these adventures I have some quite vivid memories of me and him hiking alongside great canyons or playing with scorpions. It was the perfect balance between young and old and we always …

Dear Dave, I would like to say thank you that I had the pleasure to spent so much wonderful time with you and your family. I always enjoyed very much spending Christmas in your house with your lovely Christmas dinner and a nice pint in the pub. I remember we had so much fun …

It was pleasure to have met Dave. People like him are the ones that make the human side of life on earth so enjoyable. Unfortunately, I didn’t have all so many chances to spend quality time with him, but it was evident that it was his humour, his outlook on certain matters, amongst others, …

The last time we were together with Uncle David was celebrating his 80th birthday in Sabinillas and it was a great party!  I don’t think I’ve ever seen Uncle David without a smile, that’s what I remember when I think of him, he always made us laugh 🙂 even though sometimes we didn’t quite …

Tania, is it really almost thirty years ago, that I met your parents the first time? I’ll never forget this wonderful pair of personalities. Lovely Nina with her chocolate eyes like a warm embrace and Dave with his hoarse malt-whisky-voice. He always had my full attention, when he was talking to me. Not only …

Carolyn & Jeff Newsham

Nina and I met our future husbands whilst at College together and thereafter had our first children within a year of each other. We lived near enough to walk and share family times together, with Jeff spending many an evening playing darts with Dave in the Hastings Pub. Throughout our long friendship, Dave was always …

Uncle Dave was usually the last to leave the party (see Barbara & Eric’s post). Always remember a story he told that had me in stitches about his car’s engine failing halfway up a motorway sliproad so he got out to push, not realising it was still going about 20mph! Also appreciate he never …

After knowing your Dad for 63 years there are many tales to tell, this is one of them. I accompanied your Dad on one of his trips to Spain at your Mum and Dad’s lovely holiday home. He was a regular visitor there and could travel blindfold – I just tagged along.  We left …

Baz Beaumont

Everyone knew us as Dad and Son and I suppose this all started when I was about 17 or 18 years old when I walked into Hop Pole. I was a happy go lucky kid, always cracking jokes, good looking, did magic and was real good at darts, or have I got this mixed …

Dave was my elder brother by 3years, and I felt I knew him best of my five brothers. When I was young I always felt protected by him. I remember one instance I would be about 9 Yrs old a bully boy in the ten foot had a go at me: Dave came running …

We loved going to Hop Pole and seeing the gang. When we moved to spain we came back to the uk and met up in Hop Pole to be told by dave he actually lived close by. He generously invited us to his 80th. birthday party in his favourite bar in Sabanillas. It was …

Dave Richardson

Dave was my uncle. Dave and Nina use to attend family parties. I remember answering the door to Herr Flick and Helga from Allo Allo-a popular comedy show from the 80’s. These party’s were mostly made up of family and neighbours. Dave never came out of character the full night 😂.      …

I have known Dave for 58 years! We were off Hessle Road, along with Ray Sach, Jimmy Hicks and Bruce Armstrong, and lots more rugby lads. We all went drinking around Town, we would also go dancing to Lacarno, Beverley, Withernsea. Most times we would get in for free, as most men on the …
