We have always respected David's work ethic and we have been inspired by the encouragement he has given his children to succeed in life.
David's dedication to my sister, Bridget, and their wonderful children has always been a great comfort to us being so far away in England.We thank him for the happiness he brought them and he will be greatly missed.
David and Bridget gave me the opportunity to spend time with Catherine and Robert. During the time we shared it became clear that the Hackney family was one filled with love and healthy ambition.
Spending time with David and Bridget enjoying music and sharing a meal was always a pure joy.
I will miss David but will always remember his good counsel and hearty laugh that would fill the room with bliss. Till we meet again, affectionately, Bob
This was David
Always and thank you David
