In Loving Memory of


David Arthur Williams

David sadly passed away suddenly on 15th December 2020 at his home in Hartford, aged 74 years.  Beloved husband to Jane, proud father of Katherine, Hayley & Stephen, and a loving grandad.  He had such a large heart and presence, and will be sorely missed by his family and so many friends. 

David will be remembered for his philanthropic work for numerous charities and organisations; his dedication to the plastics industry with his loyal membership to ‘The Worshipful Company of Horners’ and ‘The British Plastics Foundation’; his determination to succeed at every challenge he set himself (including cycling the ‘Cape Town Cycle Tour’ SIX times); his passion for football – including Manchester City FC and being a committed member of his local FA; his love for travel, adventure and sailing; and his wonderfully cheeky sense of humour and ability to tell a good story.

David had so many great people in his life and so if you would like to leave a message about any memories you have of him then please feel free to do so here.

Donations if desired to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, Macmillan Cancer Support or Shelter.

We were deeply shocked to hear of cousin David’s sudden death. He was always committed to the family and we remember well how supportive he was when my mother, his Auntie Flo, had a stroke.  David was such a live wire it is hard to imagine that he is no longer with us. …

My first meeting with David, Master Horner was when he interviewed me as a prospective Horner. Later, as the newly appointed Clerk, I attended my first committee meeting, the Polymer Committee, when David was Chairman.  He was very impressive, both in his obvious comprehensive knowledge of the polymer industry but also as a chairman …
