    There may be those here who knew or remember Dave Cooper, for many years a tuba player with Staines SA Band and previously Hillingdon SA and the RAF Central Band. He died 14 Jan. 2005 at age 60. He was a very loyal and enthusiastic bandsman.

    That is sad, and unexpected, news.
    I knew Dave for many years although not for as long as Brian.
    I always appreciated the encouraging words Dave had for me every time I met him.

    I know Nigel Cooper (percussion) of Staines SA; any relation?

    Dave was a real character. He helped our band at Canton a few times and was from the very first rehearsal 'one of the boys'. He was a very good player and a great joker but also a sensitive character in giving great encouragement to all he came into contact with.

    Thoughts and prayers are with Jean and the family at this time.

    Thanks, Carl.

    Does anyone have a contact address for the family?
