    I Found Out That My 92-Years Old Father Killed Himself On My Wedding Day – Evan Davis

    Davis, who has fronted shows including TV’s Dragons’ Den and BBC Radio 4’s Today program, said his father had made a “proud and loving” speech during his civil partnership ceremony in 2012.

    The couple’s 2022 wedding in London was a follow-up to their earlier ceremony, with a number of guests who were not at the first celebration, including two dozen friends and neighbors.

    During the wedding reception, Davis said he received a message from his brother, Roland, telling him to “call ASAP”. When Roland told him their father had died, Davis hung up and immediately gave his husband the news. He called back five minutes later, and learned that his father had taken his own life.

    Evans said that messages from Roland and his other brother, Beric, helped him to continue with the day. He added: “We’ve all speculated on what the hell was going on in his head … There’s no good day, is there? And I know he didn’t do it to spoil our day.”

    Davis said that when he went back to work the next day, his colleagues asked him about the wedding and he “burst into tears”.

    Quintin had been diagnosed with bowel cancer and his heart was failing. He had left loving messages for his wife, Hazel, and his three sons. Davis’s parents had been together for 65 years, but his mother was admitted to a care home during the pandemic after she started to show signs of dementia.

    Davis said his father “felt very bad” that he could not look after his wife. “Having been together for 65 years, suddenly being on his own at home was a big deal … I think he felt guilt at not being able to look after her,” he said.
