ADD A MEMORY
Gregory Nasmyth

Somewhat left field and way back in the day this one. Yesterday I was having lunch with a complete stranger and by and by it came about that he'd been to Millfield School and I asked whether he knew the Hunts, at which point he mentioned this terrible tragedy, one more in the many the world is currently suffering. So I would just like to say hi, and let Clare, Sarah and their dad know that the memories came flooding back. Me & Dane asleep on the plane to Houston before it had even taken off having partied too late the night before, New Year in New Orleans, a guy chucking a can of beer at us on the freeway down, me losing my passport in the Astrodome, basketball games, the Houston Oilers and melted cheese, Neil Diamond?!, your dad taking me to that bloody car wash as some sort of exemplar of what I should be aiming for in life always stuck out in mind even to this day (let him know it worked) I got my backside in gear eventually! Anyway all fond memories, he was a real gent, my thoughts and prays are with you guys, Jussy and Graham send them love. Stay strong and be safe. Lots of Love and hugs from across the pond. Greg x

Dayne was an incredible soul who fought as hard on the pitch as he loved off of it. Charming, intelligent, and caring - he was always a joy to be around. I cannot begin to describe how many mistakes he covered for me on the field and never once did he complain about it. Instead he would just smile and encourage. His family is beautiful and my deepest sympathies to them.

This is a huge loss to your family in particular, it was a very pleasant experience to work with you and to absorb you friendliness and contagious smile, my favourite memory with you was the time you took me to see the Houston Texans play the San Francisco 49ers - quite an experience and I am always indebted to you - it was a late night, and I made my plane at some ungodly hour the next day - you will be dearly missed my friend.
Rest in Peace Dayne.....

So sad and devastated by the news of Dayne’s passing. We spent formative years at UWC. Innocent boyfriend and girlfriend, but really true friends. Dayne even did detention for me when he was blamed for etching our names on the back of a plastic seat that I had stupidly scribbled. I was proud. I confessed but he wouldn’t have it, he took the wrap. I guess Anouk and Dayne did rather make our guilt apparent. No Ill intent meant. Just a declaration. Young fools.

He tracked through social media. Both jubilant to reconnect. Chatted often. Similar families. My brother also I’m Texas and oil. Just always a nice bond and friendship. Gone too soon. Much love Dayne. I’ll never forget growing up with you ❤️

Dayne used to wear our old mascot costume at the CAP Gala. Leading up to Gala Mary would make sure it was cleaned. That's the kind of mum she is.

I have many happy memories of Dayne, my cousin, from my childhood - and later as an easily misled adolescent propping up various bars in my late teens before he settled across the pond. The time I stayed with him in the cottage with Nancy and Zappa the cat (who I ended up loving as much as Dayne did..) was very precious. Love to Aunty Mary, Uncle Roy, Cousins Claire Sarah and the boys xx

My hearts goes out to you and your family for the loss of your precious son. I pray that you find the strength in your hearts to bear this burden. Remember constantly your cherished memories of him as this is what is needed to gain strength, even if the pain remains. Nothing will replace the emptiness, but memories will give you love and smiles that you can enjoy forever. May God give you peace and strength.

Always enjoyed Dayne's company: a great sense of humor; a terrific cook; and a wonderful father to Ben and Miles.
