21 April 1961 - 19 June 2010

David was born in Forest Gate and lived there and in Manor Park until his teens when his family moved to Clacton. Born into a West Ham-supporting family, West Ham was always going to be his club. Despite having poor health for most of his life his support for the team was neverending and he loved talking about the players past and present and collecting memorabilia.

Bubbles was played at his funeral and claret and blue was prevalent in the floral tributes. He was laid to rest wearing his favourite West Ham shirt and scarf.

David will be following his team from that great terrace in the sky.
