It is with great sadness that the family of David Midwood announce his sudden & unexpected death on 2nd October. He was the kindest of men. A devoted brother to the late William Kenney (Billy Fish) and brother in law to the late Barbara Kenney. A beloved brother of the late Doris. To Michael, Garry, Debi & John he was so much more than an uncle, he was with us all everyday of our lives, and every day of our lives we loved him. To his nieces and nephews: Charlotte, Becky, Aaron, Luke, Joshua, Jacob, Samuel, Rachel & Bethany he was a constant source of unconditional love. He was a true dear friend to so many. He will be missed, but he will be remembered with joy and happiness by all who knew him. Funeral details to be confirmed, please contact family members for update. Uncle David would hate for anyone to put themselves at risk during these uncertain times, so if you are planning to pay your respects, please kindly follow the social distancing guide lines & stay safe. The family would like you to share memories and any photographs of Uncle David on the online obituary.

R.I.P Uncle Dave. Days out in Bradford with the boys will never be the same and you will be dearly missed old pal. One of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting and a true gentleman. Much Love Tommo x

If anyone could put a positive slant on this rank situation, it'd be you Dave. You'd say 'typical joiner faffing about, get t' bar' and that's what we'll do.
You've left a colossal void that'll never be filled by anyone; helping us all and making us feel all the better for being with you.
Thanks Uncle Dave, I just wish I could say it to your beaming face right now.
Hope our paths cross sometime, in that great boozer in the sky.

I felt I didn't have the right to say a few words since I didn't know Dave for long. However, reading everyone's messages made me realise, I did know him. Not as Uncle Dave but as a true gentleman!

Most men I have encountered from his generation have a perceived idea of an Asian woman, especially one wearing a head covering, but not Dave. He treated me with respect and as an equal and that is rare. I wish there were more people like Dave, the world would be a better place.

Every Monday morning I would go down to the tea shed for a coffee and a cig with Dave. He always asked how the football team I coached went on at the weekend and how my son, Joe had played. I’d give him a kick by kick match report if we’d won and just a quick review if we’d lost. He always asked when Joe was signing for Manchester United and I would say how if he did I’d make sure I got Dave tickets for every game. We always said that he should come and watch my team play and I promised him that if he did I’d get him talking to all the mums that come to watch. We never did sort out a date but I know he’ll be watching over me at our next game.

When I pulled into the carpark on Monday for a split second I was so excited to tell Dave about our game at the weekend but then I realised that he wouldn’t be there. I miss you our Dave, work will never be that same again. You were the heart and soul of Trinity Green and the glue that held us all together.

God bless Dave, until we meet again my mate…

How sad it is when someone so genuine and friendly as Dave passes away, but reading all the moving tributes to him only confirms how much of a friend he was to so many people.
In my time at College and during my periodic visits since I left Dave always gave out a feeling of calm, warmth and fun. He had a wonderful attitude to work and a great line in banter all reinforced with a smile.
Oh, you’ll be missed Dave, but never forgotten.

Dave, the only solace we can take at this time is knowing you are up there, pint in hand looking down on us all. You kept everyone grounded and always found the right words to lighten up everybody's day. I will miss: "Hey up Stevie Baby how are we, remember...its only a job" or "how are we doing are Stevie, you'll be able to tell me" I will miss all your one liners too but most of all I will miss you! RIP buddy x

Ey Up Marky,

How's Avenue gone on? he used to ask me on Monday mornings.
Then he'd say we have a nice and steady week.
Miss you more than words can say.

RIP Uncle Dave.

It is very rare in life you meet someone who is a genuinely nice person who can be themselves in any setting with anybody, someone unfazed by other peoples wealth or intelligence ,someone who liked to help others, someone who makes others feel good about themselves, someone who everybody likes to be with and wants as a friend , you had all those qualities my old mate, I'm pleased we kept in touch when I left the college I'm going to miss your humour and your friendship.

Dave you will be sorely missed. The nerve centre at Trinity Green will be a sadder place without you having your feet up on the desk having a quick ten minutes. Keep being bionic.

I had known uncle Dave for many years, going back to the time I lived in Manningham, and used to see him in the pubs in that area along with Mick the fish, big wheels Brian and Gary Muff. At the risk of sounding a bit girly, he was a lovely man, who always had time for everyone, and didn’t have a bad word for anybody. He will be missed by all who knew him.
