Dave Storry, who lived in Christon Bank, died in January this year at the age of 75.
To all who knew him, he was a family man and an unassuming gentleman. But Dave was much more and he had a deep passion from an early age for racing motor bikes.
He won many awards and was Scottish Champion for two years in the racing of classic bikes. At the age of 57, on the Isle of Man, he achieved his ambition of joining a small exclusive club of riders who achieved a 100-mile lap on their classic bikes.
Upon his retirement from racing, he continued to dedicate his time to marshalling, to give back as many years supporting the sport as he did racing.
When Dave died, his family and friends donated money to the Great North Air Ambulance, together with Dave’s friends at his local pub, the Blink Bonny in Christon Bank, which held a quiz night in his memory. An incredible total of £1,000 was raised in all.
