The RNLI saves lives at sea.

David Guy

Picture of David Guy.

Dave was a shoreline governor for many years and was an ardent supporter of the RNLI. He was a regular visitor to Sennen Cove in Cornwall, where he gained great pleasure from watching practice launches from the lifeboat station. He admired the bravery of the crews and shared his passion with his grandchildren. He visited Sennen every year for thirty years (sometimes twice or three times), and a visit to the lifeboat station was on the agenda each time! In later years, Dave was confined to a wheelchair due to Parkinson's disease. He continued to enjoy his holidays however, although his wife, children and grandchildren often had difficulties keeping him on the straight and narrow through Sennen car park (very sloping surface!). Dave never complained throughout his various illnesses, and he loved receiving the lifeboat magazine. It is a fitting tribute that his family and friends collected over £500 in his memory, which has been sent to the Sennen lifeboat station, where Dave was a familiar figure.
