  1. Derek Dunsmore

Derek Dunsmore


 Derek Dunsmore loved and was loved by his family, was the best husband, dad and grandad a family could wish for and is missed by all, every single day,   especially his grandson Lachlan. Derek became ill and required admission to hospital where he was quickly transferred to the high dependency unit then to ICU   where he was ventilated.

 Derek had a serious infection which subsequently caused organ failure, he passed away the next day surrounded by his family. The illness had been sudden   and seemingly without previous symptoms. Derek was diagnosed with necrosis of the Pancreas.

 His daughter Debbie wishes her dad was still with her but in his memory is fund raising to support research into disease of the pancreas and to help others with the condition.

 You can help too by attending one of the events listed below and donating to the Pancreatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland, an alliance of professionals,   advancing the understanding and management of pancreatic conditions, for the benefit of patients.
