OLDERSHAW David Bertram

David now reunited with his wife Nessa, dying after a short illness on 30th August 2019.

David was much loved by all of his large and extended family and his numerous devoted friends. He will be greatly missed for his warmth, humour, generosity, general sense of fun and quirkiness and his full appreciation of life.

Following a Private Funeral Service there will be a service to `Celebrate David and his Life’ at College Court, Knighton Road, Leicester on Monday 7th October at 2.30pm to which all friends, neighbours and colleagues are invited.

David loved flowers, but none are required on the day thank you. Alternatively, buy yourself a flowering plant in David’s name and watch it grow, by way of remembrance.
