Dan was a superb adventurer and inspiring diver and pilot. He inspired my son Will to train as a diving instructor. He will be much missed.

All at Rix & Kay were saddened to hear of the loss of Dan, we had followed Dan & Sacha’s journey with great admiration and anticipation. Our chairman, Bruce Hayter, came to know Dan in August when they met in Bruce’s home town of Plymouth and shared stories about Dan’s university days and Bruce’s school days over a coffee. Our sincere condolences to Caroline, Christopher & Annabel and all of Dan’s family & friends. ‘Those we love are just a thought apart, for as long as there’s a memory they live on in our heart’. Deepest sympathies, all the Partners and Staff at Rix & Kay Solicitors.
