It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Dave Hoffman or to those who have been members for many years “Uncle Dave”.
In my time as the Chairperson of Bothasig AFC I have written numerous communications for members who have passed away.
This communication is definitely the most difficult one that I have had to do.
A home game Saturday is just not the same without Uncle Dave on the balcony and likewise at the Baseball Club.
His knowledge of our history was astounding and often shared stories with me when I needed information.
Words that come to mind when I think of Uncle Dave………. A gentleman, fair, empathetic, frank, respectful. I could go on and on.
I would often use Uncle Dave as a sounding board when faced with a difficult situation and he would start by saying “Lovey, don’t let those old f…ts pull the wool over your eyes. He would then offer sound advice based on his years of experience. He also called a spade a spade, he was very truthful about Club affairs from the past sharing all the information not just the good memories.
Uncle Dave served on both the Soccer and Baseball Committees and was still a Member of the Abe Sher FMC.
Uncle Dave you will be sorely missed by many
To Aunty Laura aka Elvis, Dwayne, Dayle and your respective families our deepest sympathy. Know that your loss is our loss.
The Memorial Service for Uncle Dave will be held on Friday, 9 February 2018 @ 15h00 in the Abe Sher Hall.
The family would like to invite you to join them at the CrossBar after the service to celebrate his life.
