David Moore graduated from Birmingham University, qualifying in 1979. After house jobs, he trained as a general practitioner, with a year spent as a trainee in Droitwich. He then travelled extensively in Australia, where he worked as a GP locum.
He returned to the UK and worked in anaesthetics for two years, before finally settling into general practice. Drawn to Devon by the surf, he became a partner at Caen Health Centre in Braunton in 1988. He remained a full time GP for more than 25 years and was committed to general practice. Indeed he had no intention of retiring for a few years yet, but he was diagnosed with a brain tumour in August 2013 and died a year later.
Known for his unflappable temperament and mischievous sense of humour, he made the most of his last year and, despite being significantly disabled, remained inspirational to the end.
He leaves a wife, two sons, and a daughter.
