Denys, you were a loving and caring, dependable and supportive stepfather, stepgrandfather and stepgreatgrandfather. We have so many happy memories of all the family occasions- you wowed us at the dinner table with your wit, and beat us at board games with your fantastic general knowledge and quick thinking ( we always wanted you on our team).
You will be greatly missed, Henry and Arthur don't really understand where you are and why you aren't doing puzzles with them. You now rest, you deserve it, after all you have given to other people's lives. Much love.
Caroline Roberts
