What a kind, thoughtful and wise man. I met David around 1995 before opening Stagecoach Wolverhampton then Stafford then Telford. He was always so calm and considered and receptive to some of my more outlandish ideas and suggestions. He taught me to retain an objective view of business without losing individual humanity. Like a gardener, he cultivated his business and all the flowers (and some weeds) with equal kindness and care. What a good man.
