Dave Howitt

as many who view this blog  will know I have a great fondness for the models and  figures produced by Dave Howitt  of Britannia. Sadly I read in the Guild forum   the following .
Dave's daughter wrote
"Just to pass on the news that my Dad Dave Howitt passed away on saturday morning. The heart attack had caused too much damage to the heart and all though the drs tried everything in the end it was too much."
I was only ordering and chatting via email with him just before Christmas....
