David Light, 1933-2019. David Light, artist, musician and muralist, died quietly on 15th June 2019 aged 86 after a short illness. He will be much missed by his wife Dorothy, and children Yvonne, Terence, Richard and Rebecca, and 8 grandchildren. David - a singer in the Ceramic City Choir for many years - taught art at Stanfield Technical High School and, after retirement, went on to paint the mural in Lobby 4 at the Potteries Shopping Centre in Hanley in 1988, and many other murals across the city. He continued carving, painting, and drawing until the end. In accordance with his wishes there will be no funeral service. A memorial celebration of his life and exhibition of his art is planned for August. If you would like to attend, please email rebeccalight@yahoo.com or write to 11 Woodland Avenue, Norton ST6 8NE.

He was my art teacher at Stanfields in the 1980s. A lovely man, so effortlessly talented, he made art look so easy! I'm so proud that he was my teacher! My thoughts and prayers go to his family, God Bless Mr Wright xx
