At a touching funeral this morning we said our final goodbyes to David Fallon.
David joined Penguin in 2005 as a masters swimmer and was a regular at training from then on, as well as swimming with us at masters meets and in open water events.
With his wife Jiyeon, David rarely missed a Club social, be it our post-training pizzas, our summer croquet fun, our Christmas meals or our gala dinners. His trademark was always to arrive fashionably late!
At the end of last year David was diagnosed with cancer and lost his battle to the illness on 15 April, aged 58.
A kind and gentle giant, David leaves a giant hole in the Penguin masters swimming squad. Our love and thoughts are with Jiyeon.
RIP David, 17 June 1964 – 15 April 2023.
