David Stafford Finney Memorial

David Finney was a proud man, an man that devoted his life to helping others. A man that no one could call selfish, he was loved by every person whom had the honour of meeting him. He was truly a genuine person, whose soul will be forever cherished. Dave was a devoted and loving son, brother, uncle, husband, mate but most of all beloved father to Kate and Kayne.  Dave is an ex-serviceman of the Royal Australian Navy, whom after 20 years of devoted service suffered the horrible effects of PTSD. He spoke openly and proudly about his service and was never one to hide the suffering he was dealing with. He had all the love and support in the world from everyone around him. You only have to google his name and you will be brought to tears by words he spoke and openly wrote for all others to read and benefit from. Dave recently lost his battle with the demons that his horrible suffering had caused, he left behind an amazing an beautiful daughter - Kate aged 10. After all the giving Dave solely gave to others, it is only fitting that we bind together and help provide the support and love to Dave's family, but most of all Kate.  All the proceeds raised here, will be given to Kate in attempt to provide her the love and support she needs. An angel, whom has lost her God. The proceeds will be given to Gemma, Kate's mum as the beneficiary. May you rest in peace brother, you watch is done. Forever in our hearts, forever in our thoughts. We will always love you. https://davestafford.wordpress.com/2017/02/15/these-medals-arent-free/  https://au.news.yahoo.com/saving-refugees-family-tragedy-aussie-sailor-reveals-harrowing-trauma-071128738.html https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/adelaide-navy-sailor-dave-finney-saves-drowning-man-in-hawaii/news-story/7662481488cabd92e19807cf3031c8f7  https://davestafford.wordpress.com/author/davestafford/
