FOND FAREWELL: Tributes paid to Amersham milkman who served community for decades

Tributes have been paid to beloved milkman who served the community for around 30 years, who sadly passed away recently.

David Price, who lived in Amersham all of his life, delivered milk to residents across the town before he retired in 1993.

At his funeral on Wednesday, June 28, David’s coffin was taken to a resting place on an electric milk float.

The float was organised by Church View Funeral Services, with David’s daughter Julia Taylor deciding the milk float would be a way to celebrate his life.

Speaking to AmershamNews, Julia said: “He loved his job, I think he just liked doing things for the community. He knew all of his customers, one of them even got him tickets for the Chelsea Flower Show.”

Several comments were left on social media to remember the much-loved milkman, who also ran a popular table tennis club and was in Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation parade.

One resident Nicky Jenns wrote: “My family and I remember Dave the milkman very well – he was our wonderfully cheery and friendly milkman for many years. One of my fondest memories from childhood is the Saturday morning deliveries of Tunnocks caramel wafers alongside the milk!”

Another resident Gwenda McInnes said: “He was my milkman for so many years and I remember he was a wonderful table-tennis player. So very sad to read the news of his passing.”

The family have set up a fundraising page to raise money for Amersham Museum and the Amersham Society.
