Obituary - David McLean
David McLean sadly died week beginning 13th April. he was 59 and had been ill since Christmas. He and his wife Joan had been married for 37 years and had two daughters and a son. There are two granddaughters.
David was born on the Isle of Man and for a time was in a band with Kevin Woodford - who now appears on Ready Steady Cook. Some years back Kevin was the subject of the TV programme This is Your Life and Dave appeared on that show.
David and Joan first showed GSDs and this was when they met up with Jan Blackshaw. Later they started to be interested in M/LH Dachshunds and met up with Daniel Roberts and Margaret Swan - it was Dave who drove them to shows.
Joan and David's most successful M/LH was a prolific winner and took hound group 2 at Driffield. David judged at Open Show level and was due to judge in Ireland this year.
To Joan and all the family we offer our sincere condolences.
