It is with much sadness that I have to tell you all, that Chulla passed away last night. If you would like to send a card of condolence to his wife Linda, and daughter Barbara,  the address is 36 Portree Drive, Rise Park, Nottingham NG5 5DS. I have no funeral details as of yet, but will keep you informed.

Kath, that is such terrible news. He’s been through so much in recent months with different medical issues but fought it all bravely and usually with humour.  

I personally will remember Chulla as a very kind, friendly and caring man,  and one of the nicest men I’ve ever met.  

We will all miss him so much, he really got us organised for meet-ups too, bless him.

Thoughts are with Linda and his daughter Barbara, and of course you Kath.  

Sending my sincere condolences and love to the family.

Hi KJ.

 

I'm truly sorry to hear this news.

 

I always liked and respected Dave.  Even on the odd occasions when we disagreed it was always good natured.  We shared a liking of music and his poetry was always a good read.  Not too mention all of the beautiful pictures he posted from time to time.

 

He is truly a great loss to Nottstalgia and will be really missed.

 

My sincere condolences to all of his family and friends.

 

Dave.  LL.

My most sincere condolences, from my short time on this site, I can honesty say that he seemed to be such a genuine and knowledgeable person. He will be greatly missed by all. R.I.P. Chulla.

A knowledgeable man with an interest in aeroplanes and things mechanical, one time rider of motorbikes, and worked metal, amongst many other interests. A motivator on this site.

 

Condolences to his family.

Hi again KJ

 

Sorry to bother you at a difficult time.

 

Just wondered if you could add a surname.  I would like to send a sympathy card, I would want to address it fully though.  Not sure Mrs C would be appropriate

 

Thanks

 

Dave.

We are so sorry to read this news Katyjay.  Both Chris and I thought a lot of Chulla, as I am sure, so many other Nottstalgians felt the same.. He bought a lot of enjoyment into our lives, with his humour, poetry and knowledge on many things. It has been a pleasure to have met him and Linda. Our condolences to Linda and Barbara, and yourself Katyjay.

A tragedy to his loved ones and for nottstalgia. A lovely man with wide interests and a benevolent outlook. He became our defacto leader for the meet ups and will be a hard act to follow. Sad day. Best wishes Kayjay and family.

Such awful news, I know Dave wasn't well but he fought to the end.  My most sincere condolences to Lynda & family, not forgetting katyj of course.

Until the big meetup in the sky Dave, God Bless you.

I am so sorry for your loss Katy, my condolences are sent to you and all the family and I will hold you in my prayers.

It was such a shock to see this on opening the Forum site, we knew he had been struggling bravely with his condition for some time but didn't expect to read this news.

He was a great contributor to the Forum with a fund of knowledge on so many topics and his admin skills in controlling members for meet ups were formidable!

We will all miss him and I am so glad that I was able to get to the meet last October and  shake his hand.

Graham.

Our dear friend, the one and only Dalai Chulla. Such a character. He'll leave a hole in this site that no one will ever fill.

 

Condolences to his wife and family, all in my thoughts, as in everyone's.

 

Bless you, Chulla. X

I am deeply upset by this loss- of a man who gave so much to this site and individuals alike.

We had a very frank conversation at our last meet...10 minutes of close chat..whilst he puffed his pipe .

Chulla / Dave: i am doing just what we spoke about.

The sites loss, a gaping hole. 

The meetup thread- he took control.

Knowledge on subjects,

To which he'd tell-

And the Jimmy Stewart film,

he loved so well.

I have to say my life was fuller,

Having known the man 

We all called Chulla.

 

Recently we laughed about things and this artist and song popped up in conversation...i thought it apt.

RIP.
