Funeral of Honorary Rotarian Revd. Reg Dean

At 12noon on 23rd January 2013, I had the honour of being present at the funeral of Honorary Rotarian Reg Dean, who passed peacefully away on 5th January 2013 aged 110 years and 63 days.  The service was held at St. Mary's Church, Wirksworth, conducted by Revd Camilla Veitch, MInister of the West Derbyshire United Reformed Church and Canon David Truby, Team Rector in the Wirksworth Team Ministry.   The preacher was Revd Simon Lumby.

The Dalesmen Male Voice Choir sang seven numbers in the church prior to the service.    The church was full it was stated that Reg had himself decided on the contents of the service, about five years ago.

The service was very fitting and Reg's son Christopher spoke about his long life and some of the more memorable events.

I am sure we all wish his family all the best at this difficult time.
