David John SCURR - Ashes plaque



David ‘possibly’ died on his way home, to the Blue Mountains area, after a nightshift in the Penrith area.  He was only 22 at the time of his death.

It is reported that the Blue Mountains Gazette, at the time, published a bio on him but they misspelt his surname from SCURR to SLURR.

His funeral notice appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald on the 9 December 1992.
