From the Hangleton Band website: "It is with deep regret and sadness, that I must announce the death of David Chappell, our Honoury President. David passed away peacefully, with his wife Annelen by his side. David was a loyal supporter of the band and will be greatly missed. His funeral will be held in Sweden and a service will be held in the UK later in the year." On a personal level, I knew David also from his time serving on the scaba Executive Committee - he was a true gentleman, a lovely man who never forgot his roots with Hangleton and continued to support both them and scaba following his move to Sweden a number of years ago.
