    We use term ‘good bloke’ a lot. Dave was the epitome of a good bloke on so many levels.
    It was a pleasure and privilege to have known him and we are all poorer not to have him around anymore.
    He had a great sense of social justice and was always interested in people.
    A lover of country music and a great story teller.
    Any negatives? Yes. He barracked for Collingwood.
    Miss you Dave.

    My beautiful uncle Dave,
    Saying you will be missed is an understatement. Every single person you met never had a bad word to say, I always had friends and friends parents, in-laws all say “Oh Dave, what a lovely man!” Or “Dave is great! So relaxed and such a kind nature” never was a bad word said. When you went, I had primary school friends even recalling the fond memories they had of you. Always friendly, always welcoming, always easy going. You were so much more than just my uncle, we were all so lucky to grow up with such a present and involved uncle. How blessed we all were to share this life with you. Rest easy now, I love and miss you always.

    David you were such a beautiful human being. You were the person I was always excited to say hello and chat to at family gatherings. Always so deeply generous with your time and your energy for others around you, with always a wise piece of advice or observation. I’m devastated our little August won’t get to know the amazing soul that you were. Wherever you are now David, the whole world’s light is a little dimmer without you here.

    So much love

    Dave was my cousin, childhood mate & lifelong friend. Always a welcoming smile. He had a great love of all things family & delighted in sharing his family stories & an attentive listener hearing all mine! He was non judgmental of people or circumstance, had an amazing/enviable outlook on life, was quick witted, was great company. Simply a lovely human being who will be greatly missed by myself, Bernie & girls. He enriched our lives, wonderful memories to cherish forever.
    Rest In Peace dear ‘cuz’, love always, Jude.

    Time has gone by so quickly David and we have missed opportunities of seeing you. Queensland is a long way away to attend all the family reunions, which I know were so much fun and great get togethers. Rest in peace my cousin.

    Dearest Dave
    Oh how I will miss your physical presence, however with over 60 years years of the most wonderful friendship I know we will never be apart in spirit.

  17. Christine Kemp says:

    As a young girl I looked up to you admiringly.
    You were such a good looking (always tanned) man with a cheeky grin and sense of fun.
    As I grew I saw how beautiful you were inside. Your loyalty to others shone through.
    You spoke proudly of your friends, parents, sister Alison and partner Rob, and especially your daughter Inez and her partner Rich. The many stories about your grandchildren Oscar and Daisy were a delight to listen to. As were the many conversations we had on social justice (which was very important to you).
    You always spoke up for the underdog.
    But it was your smile we will hold close to our hearts. Your smile and giggle lit up any room you entered.
    So we raise a glass to you mate.
    Hope you get to enjoy a beer with Ray, Bert, Graham and a cup of tea (and cake!) with Marion and Claire.
    We miss you already
    Chris and all the Kemps

  18. Sue Watson says:

    Dearest Dave,
    Hard to say goodbye, still can’t believe we won’t be seeing you again.
    I’ll always miss the hugs we used to have, they were very special.
    I’ll make sure though that a big piece of whatever sweet is going is saved for you like I always have.
    You weren’t a relative by marriage to me, you were my second brother and I’ll always miss you.
    Hope you are somewhere beautiful and we’ll see you there when it’s our turn.
    Much love, Sue

  19. Pete Howard says:

    Dave, you will always be deep in my heart & bones.
    Thanks for all the great times that I got to share with you.
    Love & Eternity.



  21. Sue Commerford says:

    can’t believe you have gone…
    so loved spending time with you…
    I always say about you, the loveliest man I know…
    will miss you terribly…
    you’ll always be in my heart! 💙

    So sorry we were unable to make the memorial and we will miss you forever – Dave was one of ‘the good ones’.
