It is with great sadness that the Parlour family announces the passing of Derek on June 17th. after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Much loved husband of Yvonne, devoted father to Alexander, Jason (Veronica), and Samantha; proud grandpa of Caden and Kywnn. We would like to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to the staff of the Elisabeth Bruyere Palliative care unit for their caring, sympathy and compassion, enabling Derek to pass away peacefully, with dignity and surrounded by his family. He will be greatly missed by family and friends, especially for his sense of humour and vast repertoire of stories. A celebration of Derek's life will be held at the Nepean Sailing Club, where Derek was a long-time member, on Sunday July 15th from 2 – 5. Please come and share your stories and memories about Derek.
