In Loving Memory of
David Patrick Walker
David was born in Hoxton on Christmas Day 1958.
He was a true Londoner and lived in the Shoreditch and Islington area for most of his life, but had close family in Australia who would regularly visit.
David was warm and friendly, generous and kind, and with a great and unique sense of humour.
He lived a full and happy life, loved by his family and adored by his close friends.
He was a vocal supporter of local residents’ rights where he lived, and was imbued with a sense of fairness for all.
He loved the theatre, film, especially arthouse and world cinema, one of his favourite films being ‘The Comfort of Strangers’, the arts, music, particularly American Soul and the golden age of British Pop like Bowie and Bolan, and was very well read, two of his favourite novelists being Iris Murdoch and Phillip Pullman.
He also loved travelling all over the UK and Europe as often as he could. Cityscapes were his favourite.
He had an independant spirit and a sense of adventure, but he was also a homely person and very house-proud.
Latterly, he spent many happy and idyllic days in Sussex with his sister, where he was relaxed and content, spending time exploring country and coast, and sampling the fayre that the area had to offer.
David is survived by his sister and nephew, and by extended family, and by many dear friends.
‘Bon Voyage Amigo, You so enriched our lives. Don’t stray too far.’
