Farewell Friend, you surely will be missed

derek hanson

It is with a heavy heart that I pass on the sad news of Derek Hanson's passing on June 24th.  Derek was a dear friend not just to me, but to the majority of our members. He was always courteous and a class act. I had great respect for him. We will all miss his leadership, inspiration and in depth knowledge of all things related to cars and racing. And most of all we will miss his smiling face, the cigar, the well known "stick" and his great sense of humour. He has long been part of Trillium and will greatly be missed. Derek passed away at home in the afternoon, but we do not yet have any information on funeral arrangements. 

On behalf of the Club, we will send our condolences to Yvonne, Peter, Raquel, Alisia and John.

Sincerely,
Isi Papadopoulos
President, BMWCCA Trillium Chapter
