In loving memory of David Roy Cottam who sadly passed away on 16th February 2022, Aged 75 Years.
A sorely missed, much loved Father to Tracey & Andrew and partner to Elaine.
A loving Grandad to Kian & Ethan, Brother to Julie and Uncle to Helen & Paul. He was a much loved and dear friend to all.

Dad was just the bravest strongest man we know, He was admired so much, he faced everything head on including his awful condition that sadly took his life. He always put on such a brave face and did things even if he didn’t feel well, he always put others first. Andrew and myself are honoured to have him as our dad and Elaine as her partner, we are truly grateful for everything he done for us and all our families. Our lives will never be the same again. He will be missed by everyone who was lucky enough to have met him. Thank you for all of our wonderful memories that we will all hold in our hearts forever. Rest in peace papa the only saving grace is you are not suffering anymore.

I always had a great relationship with my Brother-in-law, and we had some great times together, even though I was divorced from his sister, I was still proud to call him my Brother-in-law, you will be sorely missed by me all that knew you, R.I.P David.
