Funeral of Derick Last
Derick was a teacher of mathematics, the head of a village college maths department, educational resources manager and a radio and television broadcaster.
He will best remembered in the village, however, as an enthusiastic guide and supporter of the Conversation Group, the Book Cafe, and any number of schemes to benefit the community. Many also benefited from his ability at his hobby of woodworking.
He had scaled down his volume of community service to concentrate on a book of reminiscences when he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease to which, after a battle nobly supported by his mainstay, his wife Helen, and a wide circle of friends, he finally succumbed.
