Mr David M Stern – Past LCA President

Mr David M. Stern, former President of the Liverpool Cotton Association, died peacefully on Wednesday 7 February at the age of 85.

David Stern joined the business of M & B Stern as a young man. The company, a family cotton business, was founded by his great-grandfather in the middle of the 19th century.

In 1963, M & B Stern amalgamated with Alexander Eccles & Co, another well-established Liverpool company, to form Alexander Eccles & Stern. In 1991, David became Managing Director of Weil Brothers and Stern Ltd, a company formed in partnership with Weil Brothers Cotton Inc. of Montgomery.

David was President of The Liverpool Cotton Association between 1967-68 and 1981-82. He was a regular figure at international cotton gatherings and during the course of his life and career in cotton, he made many friends around the world. 

Mr Stern’s funeral will be private and a memorial service will be held on Wednesday 11th April at 3pm at  St Helens Church, High Street, Tarporley, Cheshire CW6 0AG to which all are welcome. 

We offer our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
