He was President of Ocean Villas, and served on the Board of the Treasure Cay Community Foundation (TCCF).  David, along with a team of volunteers, helped to rebuild Cooper’s Town Primary School, and has been working to provide disaster relief and  rebuilding support since Hurricane Dorian struck in 2019.

David’s personal Treasure Cay story commenced in 1971 when his parents, Peter and Betty, purchased a Garden Villa. In 1979, they purchased Toad Hall on Ocean Boulevard together with the Hepburn family.  A Lowe painting commemorating Betty’s love for Treasure Cay hangs in the Community Centre, who died in 1980. Peter remarried and introduced Vivienne to the delights of Treasure Cay.  They remained active residents, yacht club members, and keen socializers, and were a key part of the community until Vivienne had a stroke 14 years ago.
