Sorry to hear of Dereks passing, Derek was my boss in the Branch Leatham late 70s, had some great times he could look after his men never went hungry in the hills. Never forget the time when the Toyota washed down the Leatham River or shot the canopy

I was in the bone marrow unit with Janey and my family staying at Ranui came to know Derek, I remember him as a kind caring man. My thought are with your family at his loss.

Derek took the Marlborough Tramping Club on numerous trips both near and far over some roads that others wouldn't have wanted to take a bus. Always willing and keen to fit us in with his other commitments and he never minded all the dirty wet gear at the end of the day. RIP Derek
