ROBSON, David Patrick “Lurch”

3/9/1944 – 7/8/2023, age 78, Wing Commander.

Passed away peacefully in Brisbane surrounded by family. David was a beloved husband, father, brother, stepfather, grandfather, father-in-law, uncle, son, friend and wingman. He was an aviation legend, a passionate artist, author and poet, and was kind, gentle, loving, curious, adventurous and brave, and we will miss him so much.

“On swept and delta wings, I saw the world where the atmosphere joined space, where flying alone, awe overcame fear. I felt euphoric and privileged. This was my high.”

(My Time Has Flown – David Robson)

David Robson wishes that instead of flowers, donations be made to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

    David, your words have not only taught us about flight but about life’s beautiful journey. The image you painted of soaring where the atmosphere meets space won’t soon be forgotten by any of us who had the honour to know you. You were more than a wingman, more than an aviation legend; you were a friend, a mentor, and a guiding light. Your kindness and wisdom have shaped so many of us in this community, and the skies will feel emptier without you. Fly high, our dear friend, and rest in peace. Your legacy will continue to inspire us every day.
