Dave -- "246gts"
« on: August 31, 2018, 09:52:38 PM »
David passed on June 18, 2016. He was the owner of Decadence Wedding Carriages

His daughter posted an obit on their Company Facebook page.

"....Sadly the owner of Decadence Wedding Carriages, my father, David Rochford, passed away on 18 June. We are therefore unable to take any more bookings. All bookings already made for this year will be honoured by other drivers. My dad loved the business he set up after he retired and was so pleased to have played a part in so many people's big days. Julia"

You guys remember that Dave had once owned and restored a pristine Ferrari Dino 246 GTS, and he posted many pics and info of that car on the old GG.
After he sold the Ferrari his interests changed to older British luxury cars and he turned his hobby into a business. Catering to weddings, special occasions, and movie/TV productions.

He had a beautiful garage and some beautiful automobiles.  I was in England in 2012 visiting my sister and talked with him about going to visit, but it was just too far away for me at the time.

A great guy and his enthusiasm for all things auto and garage related came out in his posts.
