Dave Walter Memorial Fund

Our dear friend, Dave Walter
passed away suddenly and
unexpectedly on Friday. Dave
was a loving partner to beautiful Brydie and father of three
amazing kids, Lachie, Ronnie, and Mia. He was so proud of them all, and talked of them fondly every

Dave was a passionate aviation
enthusiasts who loved his job as a ground handling agent, he loved
the airport, plane spotting, the
people and atmosphere. His
absolute favourite task was being a loader operator, loading planes on a TLD loader. He was so good at it too.

Dave also ran a successful
business 'Drive Social' for many
years in social media marketing
and website design. He had such a love and nack for creating
amazing content.

His passing has shocked and heart broken so many of us, his family, friends and the whole airport
community. He was such a
beautiful man who has touched
the lives of so many of us with his vibrant smile and warm
conversations. He always said
hello and made an effort with
every person who crossed his
path. He was one of a kind and
had a heart of absolute gold.

Dave and his family had such a
thirst for adventure, seeing and
experiencing everything this
beautiful world has to offer.
Dave and family recently sold all
their belongings and moved from Newcastle to Cairns seeking the
tropical life and more adventure. Dave wanted so much to give his kids every experience possible.
Unfortunately that adventure
was cut short and Brydie is now
in Cairns with her children
needing all the love and support we can give her.

We are asking for your support
by way of monetary donation so
that we can help Brydie have all
the time she needs to grieve and be with her children in this most difficult time. Please give
anything you can, every little bit will mean the world. This
beautiful family shone light,
kindness and positivity on
everyone else, it's time to shine
some back at them and support
them in anyway we can.

To those that knew and loved
Dave as we did, sending you so
much love and strength. So many are beyond heartbroken, he is
already sorely missed by so many.
