RIP Derek - have seen the many lists of parts that you compiled Peter.
He has helped many vw enthusiasts keep their cars running and complete projects

regards to his family and hope the service goes as well as possible on 20th

Just copying some nice messages from fb so the family can see them




Tom Holder-Mark Oh no! Such a warm and kind man. Will be missed by anyone who ever met him. 😔

Anthony Charles Hayward Is this the guy who had the huge collection of parts ? If so rip and I will try and look after my door mirror

Danny Lord Sad news, R.I.P frown emoticon:( my condolences to his family.

Simon Bennett Can you pass on my condolences to his family please, Peter.

Morning Peter, so sorry to hear the news about Derek. I imagine the past few years have not been easy for them. If you speak to Darin or Tina please add my best wishes. Cheers, Mike

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to send messages and for their kind words, comments and thoughts about Dad. It's great to hear from you and also know Dad's 'stash' has helped so many people and their cars :) Wishing you all a relaxing Christmas and New Year, Darin & Tina
