Vale Dave Birchall


just received this form Club Veedub and thought it was appropriate to mention it.
Quote:

It is with the heaviest of hearts that I am informing our club members of the passing of one of our club founders and pillar of this club, Dave Birchall, who passed away today after battling a long illness.
He will be remembered for his tireless efforts and energy he put into this club, particularly putting together the VW Nationals every year, virtually single-handedly.
Dave will also be remembered for his wit and humour. His passing is our club's loss, and we will work to keep his memory alive and legacy ongoing.
We pass on our condolences to Dave's family.
R.I.P. David Birchall aka VW54

He will be missed as the larger than life character he was as well as the wealth of info that he had.

My memories of Dave go back over 40 years.
His passion for vws and sharing his knowledge was boundless.
I always enjoyed our catch ups together although in hindsight, I regret that they were not often enough.
RIP Dave.

Like many Volksie owners, enthusiasts or just interested people, Dave made the time and effort to help them. His knowledge and ability to communicate is legendary. RIP Dave and thank you for your help over many years.

He will be missed. So many funny stories that I remember. A lot happened at Valla.

When he made a VW fancy dress at Valla with working semaphores

when he was dancing with Donna and they both fell over

sticking his finger in super charger drive belt and had to go to hospital
