    DevonDavid R.I.P

    Some may know, some may not, I'm unsure but haven't seen anything and so thought prudent to post

    With a heavy heart I have to let you know of DevonDavids passing a short while ago. He was always involved here, a member of the forum for 10 years and loved his XK8, always involved and had his own opinions which he'd share but had respect for others too.

    One of the good guys, one of the old guard, liked, respected and sadly missed

    R.I.P

    This is very sad news, very sad indeed.

    I hope he had some time to enjoy his rebuilt XK8.

    Oh, that's a great pity. I always enjoyed reading his posts. Informative, rational and well-reasoned points of view. Argumentative from time to time when he had a principle to defend but never abusive.

    May he rest in peace.
