David Andrew Quayle (19 August 1936 – 6 April 2010) was probably best known for his part in starting the UK chain B&Q. He worked in the Marley Tile company in the 1960s and together with his brother-in-law Richard Block started the B&Q retail chain in 1969. Their idea of large warehouse-style DIY stores copied the style already successfully operating in other European countries, but was unknown in the UK and B&Q soon became the largest retail suppliers of DIY products in the UK.
