Our friend and longtime Club Member David Paddington passed away peacefully on Sunday morning, 28th February, 2021. 
Dave has known he was unwell since before Christmas and he and Fran were hoping for a miracle. Sadly this wasn't possible. 
We will always think of Dave when we play "These Boots Are Made For Walking". That was one of his bass favorites and it was such fun to follow him on that riff. 
We like to imagine Dave is "Walkin'" on to his new uke group. 
We will wrap Fran in our music and let it gradually work its healing magic. Fran described Dave as the ying to her yang.
Dave was big brother to Mick and Adrian and loving father of Steven, Kevin and Gary. 

There is a private funeral and at Dave's request, Fran will host a party to celebrate his life.
Rest In Peace Dave.
