Farewell to a Star

It is with great sadness that we received news of the passing of David Skrpyczak. David was a founding member of Get Changed back in 1995 and stayed with us until recently. David loved to perform, and often took on the lead role in our shows. He was always happiest when it was show day, he loved the audience and they loved him in return. He enjoyed taking centre stage, was always ready to sing and dance and interact with the audience. A true performer through and through.
He loved being part of Get Changed and was very proud to be a ‘Committee member and a trustee’ always coming up with ideas for how we could raise funding to support the work and shows we could produce.  One of our favourite memories of David was the time he came on stage and asked the audience “Are you proud?” Well Yes David we are Proud! Proud to have known you, Proud to have performed with you and Proud to call you our friend.
He was the ‘Boss’ of his family and his love and pride for them was obvious to all. Our thoughts and best wishes are with them now. David was well known and well loved throughout the community and will be missed by all.  Your Smile and laughter will stay with us forever
Rest in peace beautiful human xxx
