TOWARD “KIM” DAVISON, who was well known in Henley over half a century ago, died on Sunday, September 13 in the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath at the age of 82.
He lived in Hassocks, West Sussex, for 35 years having moved to the Brighton area about 46 years ago.
There, Kim worked in a bank and took part in several theatrical productions. Judy Yeates, who knew him, said: “During the Fifties and Sixties, Kim was a well-known and well-loved figure in Henley.
“He worked in the centre of town in the record department of Hammants store, where his knowledge of music made him a popular person to consult about the latest single. He was also a prominent member of the Henley Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society and was involved in all aspects of the society, on and off stage.
“He served on the committee, worked hard on fund-raising and social events and directed some productions.
“He had a wonderful sense of fun and was excellent company. However, he will be best remembered for his many roles as leading man in musical shows. He was very handsome and had a beautiful voice.
“He was greatly missed by his friends in Henley when he moved to Sussex.”
