‘And just like the movie it was love at first sight,’ he concluded.

David and Libby married in 1979. Together they share four adult children. 

‘It was definitely love at first sight. Lib was a 20-year-old nurse. Our friend Judy decided to have a party, and that’s where we met back in 1977,’ he told New Idea in June.
