A wonderful guy and someone who I had a lot of time for. He was always there to help and had a dry but wicked sense of humour. He will be much missed by archaeologists and detectorists alike. RIP David, you were taken far too soon. :g48:

I am very sad about the loss of David over the years I knew him we became very good friends, I used to enjoy the visits to various Surrey archaeological society digs with him, he was a very knowledgeable man with so much to offer if you were prepared to listen and learn.

Here is another article about David Williams

RIP David, you will be greatly missed my friend.
