Dave Simpson passed away at the fine age of 94 in Perth, Western Australia.
Regional Director of Australia, Geoff Johnston writes;
Dave had a couple of strokes over the previous 12 months and was being cared for in a nursing home. Dave joined the programme in April 2000 (at age 80, no less) and was a very active attendee at courses in both Australia and New Zealand until a couple of years ago.
He achieved his 50 courses and then decided to back off and leave it to the youngsters. He took his role as a CPC very seriously and was very helpful to his allocated students and anyone who wanted to have a chat about stuttering.
e helped to instruct on courses and was strong on maintaining discipline. His stories of life as a boy in the UK were always interesting and they always had a message for new students on the courses.
RIP Dave Simpson – Certified Primary Coach, Course Instructor.
New Zealand graduate Bruce Peter Whitfield, based in Christchurch writes;
As I was so saddened to read about the passing of Dave Simpson, I thought it would be an appropriate opportunity to share with you all the poems I wrote for & about Dave when he attended a McGuire course here in New Zealand in November 2007 – Love you Dave.
A Legend In His Own Lifetime. (Written for his 45th course).
