David Arthur Williams
It was with feelings of shock and profound sadness that I learned of David’s untimely passing thus bringing to an end over 30 years of friendship. The eloquent and apposite tributes already paid by others in this Remembrance Book bear testimony to the character and achievements of a truly outstanding person upon which it would be hard to embellish other than to add that he was one of the most charismatic and effective people I had the good fortune to know. He brought frequent doses of basic good sense to the deliberations of the Court of the Horners’ Company, and had a truly remarkable year as Master. The visit he arranged to Berlin was one that few of us who went will ever forget.
Being another with Welsh anticedents, we shared a love and appreciation of all things Welsh (save possibley the weather), and although I was not a follower of the round ball game, I think he forgave me, and was equally at home with the oval ball, not to mention the golf ball.
Our thoughts are with Jane and the family at this supremely difficult time.
