Memorable stories and life events
We spent some joyous holidays with Dermot, Doreen & Hazel (and her family). Those memories especially during the first few years are precious - full of fun and laughter and of course, lots of football talk. As I am a referee, the conversations got very interesting at times even though Dermot`s football career was `before my time`.It was a privilege to have known Dermot and to have such fond and treasured memories of him and his loving family.We had a chant that we greeted Dermot with - much to his embarassment:-There`s only one Dermot Curtis, one Dermot Curtis.How very true and we will miss him.Our love and prayers go to Doreen, Hazel, Steve, Andy Helen and other family members.

I was a young ninrteen year old playing in the reserves at Torquay when Dermot arrived and he immediately took me under his wing. We trained together nearly every day and I learned so much from him. He was outstanding in the air and a gifted unselfish player on the ground. Later I joined Exeter City and Dermot was there once again helping me, he would even fix my car when it broke down, which seemed to happen fairly frequently back then! I would not have had such a rewarding career in football if it was not for people like Dermot. He was a top top man.Fred Binney.

Hi i met dermot in the eighties when we both worked for chancel windows in whipton ,, he came to us as a begginer and was taught how to make windows and doors, he was a very kind and quite man, he didnt spout off about his fine past in the beauitful game, it was only after someone found out about him playing for ireland, that he came clean ,,he will be missed and i pass on our kind regards to his family on thee loss
