Tributes to ‘highly valued and respected’ Arun staff member
The flag at the Arun Civic Centre, in Littlehampton, is being flown at half mast in honour of Mr Thompson, 57.
Sending ‘love and sincere condolences’ to his loved ones, a council spokesman said: “He was a highly valued and respected member of staff – but more importantly was a friend to so many.
“Dave was a kind and gentle man. He had a huge love for life.
“He accepted everyone he met for who they were and always had a smile to share.
“He will leave a huge hole in so many lives, such was the positive impact he had on all who had the honour to know him.”
