Obituary - Derek Gordon Sinclair
Derek Gordon Sinclair
On 13th November 2009, Webmaster received an e-mail from Richard Portsmouth:
I regret to have to inform you that Derek died 4 years ago on the 6th November 2005, aged 75.
Derek had a career in Kenya and Croydon, Surrey as an electrical engineer. He married Mary and they had two
children, Gordon (Metropolitan Police officer) and Katharine (nurse) and spent most of their married life in
Wallington, Surrey. It was with great sadness that Mary died prematurely and was not around to share his
retirement years. A very talented woodworker, he spent his retirement helping others and making and repairing
things for family, friends and his church. A much loved father, grandfather, uncle and godfather.
(Derek's nephew and godson)
