KC members may remember him from reading his bizarre posts but to my knowledge he never appeared on Shedweb (he may have been blocked) His best work was reserved for the COML site, some of which were quite priceless if off the wall. Like many Glaws, Briz and Gloucestershire supporters he was not a fan of B--f rugby. Sadly Derek did not enjoy the best of health in recent years following a stroke.
I apologise if this has been posted in an earlier thread which I may have missed.

I always read his posts with great joy and amusement and was bemused why they stopped appearing on here. He was a great humourist and to his credit never seemed to be phased by the ignorant and petty responses he often received - sadly all rugby forums have a number of ignorant morons.
Derek was one of the true characters of our game and will be sadly missed. Personally I loved his sense of humour and feel rugby is very much the poorer for his passing. If he was a friend of yours CJ then my sincerest condolences. May he rest in peace.
