But the art, as opposed to the science, is not dead yet. R.I.P David, with love G …

I had the privilege of knowing David for nearly 40 years.  Brilliant is the best word to describe him.  He was one of the most intelligent people I have ever met.  Once David was interested in a subject he pursued it with enthusiasm, there were no half measures in anything he did.  He was …

David and I were new to RCVS Council together along with Sue Paterson in 2014.  As newbies to Council we became friends checking in with each others understanding of this bold new world,he was always humble and ever so kind.  I also worked with David as a Vet life volunteer and he shared with …

It was with great shock and sadness that I heard of Dave’s death. I first met Dave at the RVC 34 yrs ago when he was a student and he always stood out as someone who would make his mark on the profession, and he surely did that. Through the years we would meet …

I first met David when he joined the Willows Francis team in the late 90’s, where he immediately put his marketing hat on to champion the successful roll out of Cydectin.  As part of the management team he was always able to shed great clarity to almost any issue up for discussion.  Surely one …

Sad news.  Dave and I were in the same year at the RVC. I got the sense  early on that he would go far in his chosen profession. His contribution to veterinary mental health support made a real difference.  David, the RVC class of 88 will miss you. R         …
