Friends of Derek, Jean and Mike Wilson will be sad to hear of Derek’s death on 21 October at home in Spelsbury after a period of failing health.
Derek spent his childhood at Cornbury, as his father was a chauffeur there. Derek was well-known in Charlbury, where Jean also grew up, and spent most of his career working for what was then the Southern Electricity Board. Long-standing residents may have met Derek when he called to deal with their meter. Derek will be remembered and missed for his friendliness and humour.
Derek’s funeral will be on Monday, 8 November at 1.00 p.m. at the Banbury Crematorium and will also be available to be viewed via webcast. All friends welcome to attend.
