The following is a list of honours received in Dave's long life:

Dave's life's work gave him recognition, but not financial reward. His garden was his life, and his dream was the perpetuation of his garden.

In 1988, Dave invited interested people to a meeting which led to the formation of a non-profit company, Myall Park Botanic Garden Ltd, which today owns and administers the garden. The directors of the company aim to ensure Dave's work will continue to augment knowledge of Australian flora and the environment.
