Dharam (Dibble) Dabb
I have known Dibble for 35 years and he has been such an amazing person to know and I still cant get my head round the fact I’m not going to see or speak to him again.
We first became friends through playing football for Lewsey Youth between the ages of 7 – 18 years of age and later in High School where we shared the same tutor.
It was through football where a bond was made between a group of kids from an estate that still holds so tight to this day.
Dibble was a great little footballer with a wicked left foot and his party trick was that he could scoop the ball from the floor, and up and over the telephone wires. He was the only one who could do this and made me laugh everytime he did.
From the 1st day I met him up until the last he never changed. He was always the funny one who loved to wind you up but you could never get angry with him as he would just give you the cheekiest of smiles and his infectious laugh would make you laugh.
His generosity knew no bounds and he would do all he could to help in any way. There were many times I’d phone him up at the garage with a problem and his answer would always be.. “Bring the car down and leave it to Dibble”.
I believe you go through life with only a select few people who are special and I’m so glad and proud that Dibble was one of those people to me.
He was a one off who I will miss dearly and all I can do is hold on to all those great memories we shared.
Dylan, know your Dad loved you and your mum more than anything and he was so proud of the boy you were becoming. He always kept me updated on your football progress which was always good to hear.
I send my deepest condolences to Dina, Dylan and all his family.
He was a special man to so many and can never be replaced.
Dibble, fly high with the Angels
I love you man…💙💙💙💙
