  3. We only knew David for a few years, but certainly enjoyed our contact with him. His knowledge of Rover cars before 1950 was amazing and he taught us a lot. His artwork was a delight to see. We valued his friendship and helpfulness over those years.
    Our condolences to Marianne, family and friends.
