Derek Shackles

It is with sadness that I have to tell you that Derek passed away unexpectedly last week from complications of pneumonia. 

If you would be so kind, perhaps you could include a brief Obit in the magazine. 

Derek got into trikes late in life and was well known for his “wrong way round” trikes, although in recent years hadn’t been fit enough to ride much,
although ironically his general health had improved a bit recently.

In case anyone can or wants to attend, his funeral will be at Hereford
Crematorium on 29th January, 2:15 pm.  Family only flowers, contributions to Tenovus may be made instead.

Sadly it looks like the Trike building is not likely to continue as I don’t
have anywhere to put a suitable workshop.  It was always really Derek’s
project, I only became involved when he wasn’t fit enough to work on it any more.

Yours etc.

Austin Shackles
