David Edward (Dave) Lark (1891–1945)

from Labor Call

Tributes to the late Com. Dave Lark of the Textile Union were made at last Thursday night's meeting of the T.H.C. The president of the Council, Del. A. Kyle, said Dave Lark was one of the best known and highly respected members of the industrial and Labor movements.

He had been associated with the Textile Union since boyhood, and had made himself prominent in that organisation as an official for over 30 years.

He was of a quiet, peaceful, lovable nature, endeared himself to all, and was entirely without enemies.

In expressing these sentiments he (the president) knew that the passing of Dark Lark would be regretted by all.

Council, as a token of respect, stood in silence.
