Dave Howe

Dave HoweSadly Dave Howe one of our volunteers passed away in the early hours of Sunday 13 September after a very long illness; his wife Anne (also one of our volunteers...) and their two daughters, Jackie and Juliette, were with him.

We first met Dave in 2002 when he came along a Mobile Internet Taster Session at the Healthy Living Centre (HLC) in Seaton as a complete novice. After only a few sessions he joined Age UK Devon as an IT volunteer helping to deliver one-to-one IT sessions at the HLC and never looked back.

In 2011, Dave was nominated for the national Age UK Internet Champion of the Year but he declined the nomination as he was unable to travel to the award ceremony in London due to his illness. Luckily Age UK organised a mini celebration at the Devon Hotel, for him and several guests, with a live tele-conference link to the award ceremony in London which was ideal as he won!

We have some wonderful memories of Dave which we will treasure. Our love and condolences go to his family at this sad and difficult time. He will be missed by many.
