David Bartram

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 a pioneer in the scientific study of mental health in the veterinary profession, always seeking empirical evidence and sceptical of anecdote. David was always trying to help others in more direct ways, amongst other things he was a Samaritans volunteer and COVID vaccinator.  He was one of my closest friends.  Our times at the RVC with our mutual friend C were some of the best of my life.  David always had a great sense of humour, and the image I have of him in my mind is of him laughing over some joke or amusing story.  His passing has left a large hole in our lives, but I feel mine has been enriched for knowing him.  David will be sorely missed by many people
