It is with great sadness and shock to have learnt the passing of Derek. Believe or not, I was thinking about Derek in January and my eye was twitching for a couple of weeks and couldn’t make out what was wrong with it. At hindsight, I think it’s probably a sign telling me something …

Dear Esther, Fraser and Beth   I am so sorry for your loss and extend my deepest sympathies to all of your friends and family at this difficult time.   There are lots of words to describe Derek – kind, gentle, humble, role model, positive, talented, courageous  – he truly was all of those …

Working with Derek was an absolute pleasure, Derek’s passion, drive and integrity made him a stand out gentleman.  He was and will remain an inspiration and role model to me. He always knew how to make you laugh even at the most serious moments.  Throughout his years at Barclays and beyond he gained the …

Derek was the sort of boss you don’t forget – he had time for everyone, was talented and dedicated to his work and family, and was never short of a wind-up or one-liner. Derek was liked and respected by everyone I knew, he had an infectious personality and was kind and humble to boot. …

Esther and Family,   I consider myself on of the lucky ones to have had the pleasure of working with Derek. From the initial interview, it was clear that fun times were ahead. I will miss the chats about everything and nothing and the tips on music – I’d have never listened to Lloyd …

Dear Esther and family, At this very sad time, I would like to add my condolences to you; Derek touched the lives of many folks, including those of us who were fortunate enough to count him as a colleague. Hugely thoughtful and considerate of those he worked with, I could tell that Derek cared …

Janice Webster

Dear Esther and family. Derek was a larger than life individual who will be dearly missed. I have many fond memories of him years ago, putting up with the handbag and shoes chatter before our leadership meetings with Rachel, Lesley & Kath.  I even had the joy of teaching him along with John to …

There are not enough words to describe Derek. He was kind, caring and thoughtful and had an amazing sense of humour.He always had time for a chat, a cup of tea (and a few Haribo’s), and was always on hand to offer some great words of wisdom that never fell on deaf ears.He was a …
