David was a proud Essex freemason who took his various roles within Sigebert Lodge No 7572 extremely seriously. Although by nature a serious minded man, his sweet and gentle personality made him one of the most popular members of his lodge.
His friend and fellow Sigebert Lodge member, Ron Steele said that David’s seriousness made him an ideal target for some gentle ribbing from time to time but he always took it in good humour. Ron also explained that David had spent most of his professional life as a salesman which at face value would have been hard to believe due to his very quiet understated nature. In fact, David was a very successful salesman because everyone saw him for what he was – a kind, and caring gentleman.
David sadly died from cancer in 2018 but unbeknown to the Masonic Charitable Foundation, had left a very generous legacy donation in his will. This donation will allow the MCF to support even more individuals in need and charitable causes for some time to come and represents David’s truly lasting legacy.
