  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    Oh wow! what a shock!
    Been out with Dave a few times, I knew he had health problems, but what a nice guy!
    My condolences go to Julie and his family.
    I for one will miss him, as I am sure a lot of others will.

    A shock indeed :(
    I didn't know Dave personally, we had never met, but we certainly shared a few laughs and discussions on the open forum, from time to time.

    RIP Dave, and condolences to his family.

    Was "Just Dave" his forum name? if so i remember him from another (now no more) photography site. How sad he's gone.

    Yes it was. He was on several forums and well liked on them all. Hadn't seen him for some time, but they had bought a lovely motor home and I presumed they were just off on another jaunt.

    This is incredibly sad news. I met Dave on a couple of occasions at meets. He was a lovely chap. I always remember him helping others on here.
    I've just looked at his 'Areas' on his profile and his most posts are in the Welcome Forum, that says it all.
    I've put a notice up on the forum to let others know so they can offer their own thoughts and memories of Dave.

    My thoughts go to his family and close friends.

    I too never met him, but knew him as a member here and he did indeed come across as one of the good guys.
    I hope he didn't suffer, and condolences to his family.

    As others have said, sad news.. I'm sure Dave has been here longer than myself, and that seems like a long time... Didn't know him personally, but it's sad to hear of another long termer passing. RIP Just Dave....
