A farewell message to a good friend
I would like to start a thread on here to say farewell to a friend and a fellow racer that a lot of people who raced at Tibshelf model car club in the past few years will have known.
Dave Whitehead you will be sadly missed, my thoughts are with Barry and the rest of the family at this time (God Bless).
I was privileged to have met Dave, he was a kind person and loved his Nitro racing. I remember when I went to Tibshelf a couple of years ago for my first 200mm Nitro club meeting, I was like most people a bag of nerves! I remember Dave taking me under his wing and showing me how to go on and since then we became good friends.
As the people who knew Dave personally would know he became ill a while back and sadly had to give up his racing in the end. Dave loved his RC racing and was a well liked member of Tibshelf club he sat on the committee along with myself and his son Barry and played his part in trying to save the club when it was going through the noise difficulties,
Dave was a gentleman and a pleasant person to be around "Rest in peace my friend"
Our respects to a fellow racer.

Sorry to hear that Dave has passed away, he was a very sociable & helpful member of the club, who always had a smile & chat when we were up at Tibshelf. He really enjoyed his racing.
My son & I send our condolences to Barry & family.
