Dave Courtney, the former East End thug who became an actor, looked happy yesterday while watching his beloved Charlton Athletic a few hours before he took his own life at home in London. He had enjoyed a three-course meal at The Valley and a “cool day” while watching The Addicks defeat Reading 4-0 in League One before his death.
According to the Metropolitan Police, officers were called to a residence on Chestnut Rise in Plumstead, Southeast London. Dave was declared dead on the spot at 64, and the cause of his untimely death is being looked into.
The force added that no one had been taken into custody, and his family had been notified. However, most of the media reports claimed that he died committing suicide and shot himself on his own.
Quinton Green confirmed his death news and also stated that Dave took his own life with a statement he shared:
“RIEP COURTNEY, DAVE, I regret learning about the awful news that emerged from London Today. Dave tragically took his life early this morning with a firearm at his home address. I’m so sorry for whatever was going through your head and making you feel as though you were stuck.
My thoughts and prayers are with his son Beau, mutual friend Kim, friends, and family. Dave, good night, my friend. You’re at peace now, whatever was bothering you before. With a heavy heart and thankfulness. “Champers.”
Thoughts and Condolences to his family and community in this devastating time; his funeral details have not been released yet.

Later, he appeared in movies including Clubbing to Death, The Dead Sleep Easy, and Six Bend Trap. In addition to recording a version of ‘I Fought The Law’ with Scottish pop-punks Mute, Courtney published six books, including Dodgy Dave’s Little Black Book, his main source of income.
In his south London home, he had a painted picture of himself as a knight and went by the name Dave Courtney OBE, or “One Big Ego.” He earned enough to live a luxurious life; Dave also donated funds and donations to help needy individuals and organizations. Rest in Peace, Dave Courtney.
