VALE – David Sharp

It is with great sadness that the Club notes the passing of our co-founder and 15 year President – David Sharp.

Lawyer, Banker, War Correspondent, Activist for Liberty, Logie winning parachutist ( – yes that strong jawed floating man is David), U3A lecturer and very loving father to Adam, Alena & Ryun and husband to Betty.

He had been unwell over the last eighteen months – but at our January Committee BBQ he had recovered some of the old bounce, we hoped for many more years of his wit, his wisdom and his passion for liberty.

For those who wish to check out his involvement in starting the club – I point you to his address at our 30th Anniversary dinner and his very modest bio as a former President in the Dinner Programme (page 4)

Our sympathy to his family – a loss for all.
