Moyes remember David Seib

David Seib remembered


On Good Friday the 6th of April 2012 we learned that we had lost a special friend.

David had an accident while launching at the Brazilian Nationals in Carmo do Rio Claro and did not survive his injuries.

We would like to thank the Brazilian pilots for their act of respect for David in the handling of his accident.

David was a man that was fiercely loyal. He once said to me that he would give up hang gliding before he flew any other glider than Moyes.

David was a man that was super competitive. He gave 110%.

He was smart, had the strongest sense of right and wrong, was hilariously funny and knew how to do/fix just about anything.

He was a friend to so many people from all over the world; the sincere posts on his Facebook wall are proof of that.

He was a close friend of the Moyes Family.

He was loved and respected by so many.

He was outspoken and passionate about everything he did.

He was honest, a terrible drunk and loved getting nude.

He will be sorely missed……that naughty laugh, that naughty grin.

We send our heartfelt condolences to David’s family from the whole Moyes Family.

We love you David Seib

If anyone has any favourite photos or memories of David please email Moyes and we will add to our album for David’s family.
