Dave was always a quiet calm gentleman and too young to leave us.

Rest in peace Dave.

Sad news everyone. I just received the following message from Judy Berry -
"To all Dave's friends, I would just like to let you know that Dave died this morning at 6.45 a.m. He was at home with myself and our son, Colin, his wife Sheree and two of our grandchildren.
It was a relief to see him go in the end because he was in a lot of pain and it was very distressing to see him so upset.
Judy Berry "

Sad to see another old mate go.
Rest in Peace Dave.

It's always sad to see of friends from the past die.  
Dave was one of my instructors at Wagga in 1983. 

Best wishes to all family and friends.

Dave was one of my first corporals after RAAFSTT, at ARDU in the early eightys. All been said before but, I will add that he was truely one of the good guys.

Condolences to Dave's family,




A number of Gunnies including myself attended Dave’s funeral to express our condolences to Judy and family from all Gunnies.

I worked with Dave at 6SQN during his last couple of years before his retirement from the RAAF.  He was, as others before me have described him, one of the nicest blokes I have ever had the pleasure to work with and a through gentleman.  Dave was a private man with his quite voice and calm manner.  He also had a keen sense of humour which many people found surprising given his quiet nature.    

Rest in Peace Dave

I was at Dave's funeral with Bas, Les Que and George Shores. Another good guy passes on too soon.
Rest in Painless Peace Dave

Dave was my boss at 6SQN for a while.  A real nice bloke and another sorely missed man.
