Greenway Day for David (Lisa Stout)

On Saturday, October 13th, our beloved David ‘Snibit’ O’Brien passed away unexpectedly. We, his family and friends, are feeling the enormity of his loss & are left heartbroken.

We remember David as a devoted & loving family man, and as a loyal friend. He was a man with a dry wit, killer smile and kind heart. Humble, easy going, patient and caring, David never looked to be the centre of attention. He had a love for music, film and lots of coffee! but his greatest passion was his two children Jake and Isabelle and his life long partner Dina. They were the foundation of all his actions, the anchor that defined and shaped his life.

David is also sadly missed by him Mam Sheelagh and Dad Don. He was the eldest of seven brothers and sisters; his twin sister Lisa, brothers Michael and John, sisters Anna & Sarah, and youngest sister Clare whom he was still mourning for after her recent passing. He loved them all dearly, and they him.

We have launched this iFundraise page in honour of David’s memory, but more importantly as a lasting tribute for his children so that they may always know what a great man their father was and how loved he was by so many. All proceeds from this fundraiser will be used for the educational needs and future care of Jake and Isabelle, in an effort to ensure that Dina does not carry the financial burden alone.
