He particularly enjoyed cricket and golf and was a member of Clitheroe Golf Club and former member of Doncaster Town Moor Club. Together with his wife Sue, David travelled the world making wonderful memories that will be forever treasured. He was blessed with the most amazing memory and always told the best stories.
