My colleague, my band mate, my friend.
Dad, thank you for making me the man I am today.
There were times when I let you down, you never did the same to me.
Always there for anyone. If I leave this earth having accomplished even half of what you did in your life, I will consider it a life well lived.
Sail on dad, I’ll see you one day.

Dear Derek, Our lives go on without you But nothing is the same We have to hide our heartache When someone speaks your name Sad are the hearts that love you Silent are the tears that fall without you is the hardest part of all You did so many things Your heart was so kind and true The special years will not return When we are all toghter But with the love in our hearts you walk with us forever

I met Derek twice. He was an absolute gentleman on both occasions. He was down to earth and very professional in the work he did. Such a sad loss for his wife and family.

Derek ticked all the boxes in life. A loving father, a caring man who gave so much more than he took - for his country and the community around him. A man who was fair and considered in his judgement, who positively affected all those around him. A force for good who truly deserved the term 'great', yet would have blushed if he had heard that said. A man I respected, his words were those worth listening to. He leaves us who knew him richer in life and knowledge and is greatly missed. I salute you Sir.
