Sending my deepest and sincerest condolences to the Protor family. I remember Dave growing up because of my father Keith and I knew them to be very close. Dave was always so fun to be around and the first one to crack a joke. He was truly a great person. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Rest In Peace Dave, I’m sure you and Keith have a lot of catching up to do.

On behalf of my parents, Don and Theresa Moore, our family extends our condolences to Debbie and the Proctor families. According to my mother, Dave (and Dan) were the most polite young men, always smiling and asking about everyone. I know myself, the Proctor boys were, and always will be, a huge – and much loved part of the Sussex fabric. A very sad farewell to Dave. Maureen Moore
