R.I.P Dave ( Smithy ) Smith Port Of Felixstowe Crane Co-Ordinater

Andy M Smith to 


Today we received the tragic news that Port Worker Dave Smith lost his life whilst on holiday in Cuba. 

A hugely respected / fun bloke around the town and the Docks

Always up for a laugh and many many holidays that he worked so hard for.

The Port has lost many old characters over the years and just never seem to get replaced !!!! Dave was one these in the making that has been taken away very prematurely

Sincere condolence's to all his family and friends.

Dave, I only met you a few times. But you always had a smile on your face and made me laugh. Was so lovely of you to invite me to your birthday drinks at the Owl. You will definitely be missed by so many people, and also by me. I can't believe you are gone we were only talking about your holiday the other month. Such a terrible loss. Rest in peace my friend xxx
