Hi Raymond , just spoke to Big John Conway a friend of Derek's. He confirmed the tragic news that Derek collapsed in Well St today on his way to the game , he never regained conciousness and died. A true St Mirren supporter and friend who I first met at an away game in Stranraer in 1973.

I am shattered by the news and thoughts are obviously with his family. RIP Derek

Truly shocked - Wasnt that long ago at Tynecastle was gonna go try buy a ticket and Derek had won some through league sponsor and gladly gave me one and wouldnt take a penny for it (made sure he got a guiness or 2 though).... Only for me to drop it unknowingly and when I got to the ground and re-traced my steps it was literally outside the bowling club.....

Definately a true gentleman and buddie - Thoughts are with his family and others close to Derek

RIP Derek, Tragically gone but definately not missed buddie

Realy blown away by this. :( Hadn't heard anything about it until reading the thread just now...even thought I saw him from the back at the game today too...obviously was mistaken. :( Only thing I do know is that the status thing Mond has mentioned was put up by Derek some time back, maybe a week or two ago or something - I'm sure the mods will be able to check exactly when. Whenever it was I had seen it at the time when he came back on briefly for the first time in some while to make a couple of posts. Definitely wasn't today.

Hadn't known Derek nearly as long as yourself or doubtless many others Billy, but had known him for a few years via this and meeting him at games. He was as you say a true Saints supporter and a complete gent who I considered a friend. He will definitely be much missed and my thoughts are with his family.

RIP Derek. :(

Nice one Toon. Derek in his favourite place ever !

Thanks Billy.

That was 1 of his favourite pictures.

He told me when I sent him it, that it was the only picture he had of himself inside Love Street (home). :)

Mods, can you please move this thread to General Discussion where it deserves to be.
