David Ide 1935 – 2020

David Ide went to be with the Lord on Friday 12 June. David was born into a difficult family situation with an absent father. His family were also Exclusive Brethren and, as a young man, he and a number of others left. These trials all inflicted painful wounds. Yet David’s faith was resilient, and these early experiences created a deep humanity.

David married Marion and they had two children, Julian and Joanne. He then made a successful career in building. Indeed, for a while, David’s office was a Rolls Royce. Yet over time he became more interested in Christian work. He was very involved in setting up Friends International, and he and Marion entertained up to 100 students at a time at their home.
