David Hughes R.I.P.

My father David Hughes sadly passed away in the early hours of Monday morning 16th May 2011 after battling 17 months against lung cancer. A true Evertonian he took me to my first match when i was three, he begged borrowed and stole for us both to be at the European Cup Winners Cup Final.

Even when he was having chemo and radiotherapy he did not miss one home game, and even went out to Lisbon to see the blues in Europe.

In his dying days, though confined to a wheelchair his last game was against Man City which the blues fought just like my dad and won to leave us all with great memories. David Hughes

The funeral is on Tuesday 24th May at St Frances De Sales Church at 12.30pm followed by a celebration of his life afterwards in the Royal Oak.

To say that Dave was a 'good Evertonian' would be a massive understatement, in fact he was one of the very best I know. Dave has been a match going blue nearly all of his life going to Goodison for over fifty years and has been a season ticket holder for as long as I can remember.

There are so many stories about Dave's countless away trips all over England and Europe to watch the Blues but I have attached an image of Dave together with another famous Evertonian, Freddy Armstrong, taken before the Sporting Lisbon away match in Portugal early on last year.

Despite his illness Dave never moaned about his condition or the chemo/radio therapy he went through, he just got with it and carried on watching Everton regardless. Indeed Dave made it to the Citeh game this month against all odds and although he was in a wheelchair he still managed to stay out long after most of us had gone home.

For those of us lucky enough to know Dave he was a fantastic friend, an exceptional Evertonian but most of all a great husband to Lily and loving father to his son David & daughter Helen. RIP Dave we will never ever forget you, Nil Satis Nisi Optimum. Andy Merritt

Dad, today is going to be the hardest day of my life, to say goodbye to my dad, my best mate and my world. We had so many great memories together and I am so proud that you were my dad. We may have not been rich but I never went without and money could not buy what we had. Life is so so cruel but I will get through this and so will my mum and Helen as we have so many great friends and family that will get us through it. Say hello to me nan and Westy, and I will have a Strongbow and a brandy with one ice cube for you tomorrow with our Everton family God I will fuckin miss you dad but will always remember your shouts: 'It could be worse ye could be red!' 'What's are fuckin name?' 'Ye grandad never went, ye dad doesn't go an neither do you so fuck off!' The memory that will stick with me is not being there v Coventry in 83 when Sharpy scored in the last min on one leg. Nor our numerous wembley trips, including making my communion on the Sunday by myself as we went to wembley. Rotterdam, Alkmar or Lisbon but seeing you celebrate that second goal v Man city in ye wheelchair arms aloft! 'What's are fucking name?'

Only met you twice Dave, but you were a smashing bloke. You lived life to the full and have left Marilyn and Trevor with happy memories although both miss you badly. Our thoughts are with Lil, David and Helen and know we will meet with Lil when she visits Newcastle again - we will sit outside the queens and have a tab and a voddy in your memory. God bless you and hope you are at peace xxx

I know I didn't see you as much as Trev, or as much as I would have wanted to, but cannot say enough how much I do miss you. Every single memory I have of you is a happy one. We all had some fabulous times in Lanzarote - and one time that I remember is me and you skipping along the prom pissed as farts singing "Were on our way to Barcelona" while Trev and Lil walked behind us. By we have had some good times - and most of them pissed ones - just the best!!! I will always remember the first night sessions on the hols Lil would do her usual - have a voddy or two over her limit and be crying "I wanna Go 'ome" - and you you tinker you would carry on with your Strongbow until we were all practically on the floor - and you still had 'one for the road'!!! Happy times!!! I am so glad we got a few days in Murcia with you last year - I just so wish there could have been more time with you. I will be there for Lil always, and we will look out for Helen when needed up here in Newcastle. I am sorry that I wont be there on Tuesday, but I will be thinking of you while downing a cider or 2 - I will even wear an Everton top in your honour!!! You are one of the best Dave - I miss you so much. Love you. God bless you darling and pray you are at peace now.xxxx

To my little hero who battled so hard through a terrible illness. I was glad you were able to come and visit me twice in Spain, We had two great times although seeing you off at the airport was hard. We had so many great times together, went so many places watching our blue heroes. It was lovely how we had our boys within a few weeks of each other and use to take them to the games together. We were also happy how they stayed friends for over 30 years even though they lived far apart. i dont know who i am going to phone and have a moan to now after we lost a game. you always used to cheer me up. My condolences and love go to Lilly, Helen and young Dave who have always made me feel so welcome when i stayed at Frampton Lodge. See you on Tuesday my best ever mate. Love you always R.I.P Cockney John

Shame you couldn't hang on for one more game mate. Today was about you and your memory. Every one of us hard arse Blues had a tear in our eyes as we reeled off stories of times past. I went in 10 minutes late as usual mate, only this time I wasn't waiting for you, instead just thinking of you. Never seen a kick off for about 10 years because of our last quick pint and damn sure I won't see kick off for next 10 years! See you tomorrow mate then I'll be drinking Strongbow for 2 on Tuesday. RIP mate.

Dave, you will be sadly missed mate, even when you were ill, you had the same attitude to life and Everton. Bluehouse memories, away trips, cider, laughing, crying, watching the Blues, always with a smile on your face. Say hello to my Dad when you get upstairs, he'll have a pint waiting for you. Thoughts go to Lily, David and Helen, and to everyone who knew him, he will be missed at every game. Nil Satis Nisi Optimum

I first met Dave nearly 40 years ago, and the memories of all the laughs we`ve had will stay with me forever. He was the best of the best. When we lost he never slagged the the team or any one player. He just said we`ll win next week. All the Blues who knew him and those who didn`t should try to attend on Tuesday because as Dave always used to say (actually it was more a very loud shout!), ``WE are the famous EFC``! No wonder with great evertonians like Dave. I will raise a glass on every match day to remember Dave , and be thankful that he regarded me as a friend. He will NEVER be forgotten. COYB.

What more could Dave have been to me? He was a brilliant Godfather, and has always been there standing next to me at Goodison for as long as i can remember, I guess i'll have to start sitting in my seat again as we cant swap seats for luck anymore, Thanks for many years of joy at Goodison.

Dave who would have thought 40 years ago we would still be as strong mates as we are. When I pushed you to your last game at Goodison you still had the same undaunting belief we would win and to see you when Ossie scored the winning goal arms raised rocking your wheelchair will stay in my memory forever. As all your relatives and friends have said below never moaned always giving shy to recieve. Lily,Dave,Helen my thoughts are with you. God bless Dave. Nil Satis Nisi Optimum.

Davey- our loss is Dixie, Alan and Labby's gain in those skys of blue. I am priviledged to have met you and to become a friend of yours. You will never be forgotten. I remember the laughs and banter we have had over the years and recently, when you came up for the Scunny match your look of horror that we did not have Strongbow on tap! We soon sorted that out with a trip to the nearest off license where you proceeded to clear the entire stock! hilarious! You were not well at the time but you were so brave. God bless you Davey....you are a top man and the match will never be the same without you. Nil Satis Nisi Optimum. Love you and miss you! Matty and Wayeno COYB

Really don't know what to say. Words cant begin to explain how I feel or just how much I'm gonna miss you!! You were 11yrs old when I came into your life & straight away, we had this amazing bond, more than uncle & niece. You always were & always will be my Everton legend, my hero, my idol, my best friend. Goodison Park & the Oak will never be the same again. Life without you will never be the same again, because you wont be there, but will keep my promise to you and be strong for our Lil, David & Helen. You're in my heart, you're in my soul, always & forever!!! nite nite, godbless to a true blue & gentleman, ur brokenhearted Niece, Jeanette.xxxxxxxRIP,COYB.xxxxxxxx

The most passionate man about the things he cared about that I ever met. When Dave wanted to get his point across, he did, and to hell with the consequences! A brave man who never complained but just got on with it until the end. My last memory of his life will be seeing him in the Oak after he had watched one of our best 2nd half performances of the season against City, surrounded by his mates, still managing to bellow out that infectious laugh of his. A shadow of the mighty Blue that he was but nevertheless a giant in all of our hearts and minds. Sadly missed by many but always fondly remembered. We'll give you a send off that would have made you proud. Love you mate.There will never be another like you. RIP true Everton Legend

Goodbye Dave after 40+ years of great friendship and memories galore. The funniest was at Crystal Palace in the early 70s when you thought you had been sussed by Palace fans and aked to borrow my green harrington only to find 'the lad in the green harrington was more in demand with them than the lad in the white jumper'. It will be strange on Sunday to be waiting in the Park End for you to finish your strongbow in the Oak and show up your usual 5 minutes into the game.....only this time you won't. As Terry says you are the best mate anybody could have and there wil be a large hole in everybody's life who knew you. We are all off to the Alan Ball tribute night tomorrow night sad that you won't be with us, but we will raise a glass or several (I might even have a strongbow) in your honour. I've posted this under the name you called me in those 40 years (don't ever remember being called John) and I'll end this with how you used to sign off all your texts........COYB.
