Long-standing UKC contributor David Hooper has passed away. David has been fighting a battle with cancer for some time.
David joined UKC in 2004 and made over 1500 post on the forums becoming one of the stalwarts of the community. His last post was on 29 August this year and was typical in that he was offering advice to someone else about some gear, while no doubt extremely ill at the time.
Our condolences to David's family and friends.
