VALE: Dave Burke

Categories:Member News

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of another amazing entertainer—Dave Burke.

Burke is a Celtic word meaning handsome and witty. Dave was also a Celtic word meaning not very.

Everyone loved Dave. He was compassionate, fun loving, dedicated and above all he was our honorary ALVA Bloke. Dave and Sybil attended many a function and event, delighting all those in their company with their stories of their life.

Dave always gave 100%. He was a regular at the Trivia Night with his “heads and tails”, providing highly sought after prizes, ranging from books, DVD’s, CD’s and of course a bottle of wine or spirit of some sort.

This photo was taken at what would end up being Dave’s final Trivia Night with ALVA. He always took great pride in this event and wanted to raise as much money at possible for the cause.

As I was searching through the history books, I came across this writing….  “Captain Cook was born in Yorkshire, and so was Dave Burke. Both discovered one of the best countries in the world, Australia. But only one stayed. “

And I think I speak for many when I say that we are all a better person for having known Dave Burke. Rest in peace Dave with Sybil by your side.
