Passed to Higher Service 21st December 2023
The funeral service for W.Bro. David will take place on Friday 12th January at 10:30am at St Paul’s Church, Church Lane, Farington Moss, Preston, PR26 6RD followed by a committal at Preston Crematorium attended by family.

David was a committed Freemason and, as was the pattern of everything David did in life, he excelled as a mason. He achieved very high rank; uniquely attaining Assistant Provincial Grand Master in Craft and Mark and Assistant to the Provincial Grand Principals in The Holy Royal Arch.  He was a positive influence and a valued mentor to so many Freemasons and was immensely popular among his peers. 
David was an Inspector of Police with The Lancashire Constabulary as well as a successful sportsman. 
He was also a true, loyal, and well-beloved friend to so many.
It is therefore envisaged that the funeral will be very well attended
David was pivotal in the charitable endeavors of Freemasons in West Lancashire and therefore, any donations in lieu of flowers, would be gratefully received and faithfully applied by The Masonic Charitable Foundation, care of Martin’s Funeral Directors, Tulketh Brow, Preston.  PR2 2JJ.
With great sadness and kindest regards,
Mike Pinckard
Provincial Grand Secretary
