Lifelong City supporter Dave Fear has been described as “a passionate Bristolian with City at his heart.”
Dave passed away at the weekend following decades as a Season Card Holder. He attended his very first match back in the 1950s and he became a popular and well-known figure among the fanbase and hierarchy of club staff.
Dave was a figure involved in the fundraising side to the youth development’s Centre of Excellence – the years prior to the Academy – and he helped find sponsors to finance the Centre at the time.
He was a man with a passion for football, charity work with the Children’s Hospice South West, and the city as a whole. He once managed Old Georgians Football Club who themselves tweeted: “One of the most popular men you could meet, a true gentleman and a great friend. Everyone at @OldGeorgiansAFC would like to pass on their condolences to his family and friends. He will be sorely sorely missed by all, especially those connected to the club.”
Off the pitch, Dave ran a successful local business David Fear Electrical Contractors Ltd - which is based on Gloucester Road.
Dave’s friend, fellow City supporter and former Executive Chairman of the Premier League, Richard Scudamore said: “Dave was always around and committed to the club.
"He was a passionate Bristolian with City at his heart, a very kind soul who organised big fundraisers for the Hospice and he was a genuinely nice man.”
The club sends its best wishes to Dave's friends and family at what is a difficult time.
Staff from The Bristol Sport Foundation have raised more than £3,000 for a number charity’s supplying meals to vulnerable people in the Bristol community.
