David Scullion - in loving memory

David Scullion - in loving memory
A message from David's sons - Neil, Michael and Phil:

Our father David sadly passed away in February.

For over 26 years, David was an enthusiastic attendee of weekly Cardiac rehab exercise groups in both Alton and Basingstoke.

He was referred to Cardiac Rehab following a heart attack in the mid-90s. Before then his exercise was limited to the odd game of tennis or walk, and he had never been confident using a gym.

The transformation was huge, and every Monday, Thursday and Saturday, he would attend classes run by many wonderful instructors who supported him to feel safe exercising.

Over time he built a community of friends in the classes who would encourage each other to turn up, rain or shine.

While he said himself he was never going to run the London marathon, the base level of fitness he built helped to keep him healthy, active and made a huge difference to his mental wellbeing for a quarter of a century.

Even after his stroke in November last year, he returned to the classes as soon as he was able, and was enthusiastically tackling the new challenge of getting even fitter and healthier.

As a family we owe a debt to the charity, which can simply never be repaid.

It would thus be a really fitting tribute to our father if you feel able to give to Cardiac Rehab, a charity that was extremely close to his heart (literally!)

We are sure that they will use any money raised to help support a new generation of people in the local area, in the same way they supported our Dad.

With love,

Neil, Michael and Phil

Your humour, encouragement, and enthusiasm were greatly appreciated when I started exercising at the gym. I am privileged that I was able to call you my friend and you will be sadly missed.

Thank you to everyone who has chipped in and helped to raise so much for Cardiac Rehab - I am blown away by your generosity.

Dad - I am so glad I got the chance to join you at your class earlier this year. While I was unconvinced by your squats, your enthusiasm and diligence in attending for so long was inspirational.

I hope that this donation helps others to follow in your footsteps.

I always had the greatest respect for your steadfast support of our cardiac rehab exercise group. You leave an empty seat on your favourite exercise bike and I always remember you on it at the start of class. I will miss our occasional chats about Wellington and history. Rest well David.

Uncle David, you’ll always be in our hearts and thoughts. We loved your sense of humour and kind and welcoming nature, we absolutely adored our family quizzes over the past 4 years and our chances to catch up. Such a shock to hear the news, and it’s a timely reminder to cherish those loved ones around you, life’s too short.

No one ever gives you notice that you are going to lose someone, once it happens there is no going back. I have lost my chance to tell my brother how much I loved him and how grateful I am to him for the help and support he has given me throughout my life. He seemed to have nine lives and always bounced back from illness, I am sure that the help and support he received from Cardiac Rehab played some part in this.

David, we didn’t have the pleasure of meeting you in the flesh but your lovely letter of thanks after the wedding was so touching. We got to share the wedding with you virtually; and from the wonderful stories we have heard of you it is evident that everyone has and always will hold you in incredibly high regard.
Dianne, Phil, Fiona and all the Scullion family - we can not begin to imagine how you’re feeling during these challenging times but know that we are here, we stand with you and you’re all so strong! Xxx
