It is with immense sadness that we announce the death of Sue Peacock – Dave’s wife of 36 years – on July 4th after a brave battle with lung cancer.

Despite being a lifelong non-smoker, she was diagnosed with the disease at an advanced stage last November.

Sue was quite simply a remarkable human being. Loved by anyone who was lucky enough to know her, she never had a negative point of view on anyone or anything even as it became clear she was losing her fight for life.

Sue and Chas’ wife Joan were inseparable best friends, and she and Dave were godparents to Chas and Joan’s children.

Sue was instrumental behind the scenes for Chas and Dave, working tirelessly on the side of the business that musicians just aren’t good at. It’s accurate to say that without Sue and Joan, there wouldn’t have been Chas and Dave.

To say that her death leaves a gaping hole in the lives of so many is an understatement beyond compare.

Our thoughts are with Dave, Joan, and all who were close to her at this incredibly sad time.
