David aka Zorba because he played the guitar and was playing Zorba the Greek and it stuck,and Oddjob as he was known to do any job from driving various pieces of vehicle down the dock, working doors at clubs, pubs etc, being a Rolls Royce Trained Chauffeur driving a local business man, running his own Chauffeur Business, driving Taxis for different businesses in Felixstowe and then running his own Taxi business, instructing new entrants to the dock on various types of vehicle, becoming a driving instructor to teach people to drive with a trailer and others to drive an ambulance which he enjoyed and very proud to do. He loved to play his guitar and was self taught. He also loved to drive and had many vehicles from a Camero to a Rolls Royce but his greatest love after me his wife,children and family were Motor Bikes (well maybe not quite in that order) He loved to ride and ride with others whatever they rode.He was a member of a bike club and was Vice Chair with his best biking buddy Mick Manchester to a new club, but he had no politics hence he would ride with Scooters to Harley's to just get a cuppa, ride to London for breakfast at the Ace Cafe and to get doughnuts and or bagels he rode to different countries such as Germany, Holland and France and much further afield to meet new riders and club members. He was a friend to hundreds and would help anyone at anytime, he was respected by many as he would be honest and truthful to all and as long as you did not lie to him he would be your friend for life. He gave without question.He was my husband and I trusted him with my life.He will be missed by me,his family and his friends beyond words, and I hope we can all honour him by being kind, give without question and be truthful to all that we know now and to others that we meet in the future.
