It is with real regret that I have to let you know of the death of His Honour Judge Derek Clarkson Q.C. Derek died peacefully at his home yesterday.
It is good to remember celebrating his 90th birthday last Christmas and he had also just celebrated his Diamond Wedding.
Derek was a popular and respected Forum Member having joined in 2005 and he was our Chairman in the season 2017/2018. More importantly he contributed to our activities enormously with his amusing and regular talks on his legal reminesces and mysteries. At the annual Christmas lunch he further entertained each year with appropriate anecdotes and stories.
He will be sorely missed but also remembered with real affection by many.
Our condolences to Petronella and family are sent at this time.
My thanks to John Taylor for providing the advice about Derek’s passing.
