It is with great personal sadness that I pass on the news that Dave died suddenly in the early hours of 21.06.23. in Denia hospital.


In the UK Dave had been a good crown green bowler but obviously he had to convert to the calmer flat green version when he joined Country Bowls around 2005.

That’s where Ron and I got to know him and with his encouragement got involved in the regular, Open Bowls events held at most clubs south and north – travelling then was no great barrier.

Later he moved to play at Horadada BC until he and Marilyn (Mal) moved up to Calpe a few years ago, where he was just about to join up at Calpe Bowls Club.


To me he was like a big brother, annoying, with a dry sense of humour, a good (if grumpy) skip, and a good friend with a big heart.

Hopefully Dave will be remembered, by those who knew him, with a big smile!


At his request there will be no funeral but perhaps friends would like to raise a glass, of your choice, on 8th July, which would have been his 78th birthday.


Our thoughts and sincere condolences are with Marilyn, family, friends and fellow bowlers.
