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)

Hop Pole Lads

Dave was a top guy. Absolute salt of the earth and I always enjoyed being in his company. We often had chats in the Hop Pole about anythingn and everthing. He was always very organised and set in his ways, and ran through what he had prepared for tea!!! A man with an iron …

Wembley Lads

The all-time strongest handshake – ever! Thank you for living in our time – Bradders xx   Lots of beers, and always with the lovely ‘soft’ handshake when he was saying goodbye!  –  Mike D’Arcy   Dave was a top guy!  –  Abo   Dave was a man you could always rely on. He …

Ian Lyons

I have lovely memories of Dave from the Wembley trips and spent many times talking with him over a few beers. A lovely man, I feel blessed to have been aquainted with him. …

Dennis Barron

My memory of Dave will go back 10 years on the Wembley trip. We lost his drinking partner, Frank Denmon on the tube train to Camden. Dave was that concerned, he organised a search party for Frank who was found and Dave gave him a bill for the 2 rounds he’d missed! …

7 Years is a big age gap when you are young, but not so much as young men together. When Vin went to sea first, Dave was 14! But, home from sea with time to kill (as we were not together until he was 26+) the lads had good times! When Vin was 25, …

Charlie Dennison

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


I have many memories of your Dad, who was like mine in many ways. I will never forget Sunday Lunches at your house and the fact that we got to drink wine mixed with lemonade – the height of sophistication! Sending you all hugs – Margo …

Ray & Rosemary Sach

Dave was one of Ray’s best friends and they had some wonderful adventures together! He was always such a gentleman in every way and Ray will never forget him. …

Noreen and Chris Hunt

Dear Tania, Janine and Davina,  it was with such sadness that we heard of the death of your dear dad David. We grew up together in St Wilfred’s and our families were joined together through Vin and Margaret. Then we got to know your lovely mum, Nina and have a good friendship with her. …

Vic and Sally Martinez

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 …
