Obituary of David Essex

David Essex

Mr. David Essex (born July 23rd, 1947 as "David Albert Cook") died peacefully while traveling in a boat on October 25th, 2021 (TBV) with his oldest friend nearby. His cause of death was said to be a boating accident. He was 74 years old when he passed on.

David is survived by his parents, Olive Cook and Albert Cook, most recent wife Susan Hallam-Wright as well as his pet llama, Piper.

Professionally, David was a Singer-Songwriter who was best known for his popular music single "Rock On".

When he was not kicking it as a Singer-Songwriter, David was known for his love of flower gardening and he would spend most Fridays picking flowers. Mr. Essex (the deceased) also spent ages visiting with his oldest friend most Mondays when he was able to spare a dozen months. Ever since he was a boy in Plaistow, many remember David as a great storyteller with profound anecdotes that thrilled everyone. In lieu of any more flowers, the family asks that you make a paltry donation to the Heart Foundation in David's honor.

A funeral is scheduled for fortnight the 23rd at the chapel in Plaistow. The service will commence at 9AM with a reception to follow hosted by his mother at the funeral home where refreshments will be served. All are welcome to the visitation to be held at chapel at 9AM.
