Obituary - Deryck John Newshamm - "Degsy"

Recommended Posts

Sorry to have to inform everyone on HMVF, "Degsy" sadly passed away in his sleep on 2nd December, it is thought he had picked up a bug of some sort but we are not 100% sure and will know more next week.

I have been asked by "Degsy's" son Richard to inform those who know him of his passing.

Details of the funeral will be posted shortly.

Regards,
Mal

I am very sorry to hear about Degsy. Up until a few years ago we would occasionally talk on the phone and when he came down to Kent to buy the Weasel, he asked me to come and meet up.

May you rest in peace Dercyk

This is such sad news. I so very much liked Degsy. Like many others I only met him the once but would always have interesting interactions with him on the forum. He will be much missed.

Only just saw this.

Very sorry to hear he passed away. We spend some time during A&E 2012. IIRC we also went to the pub.

When he fell ill some years ago I contacted him a few times for moral support.

Quite recently I thought about him and considered contacted him and I guess I forgot.

 

Please convey my sincere condoleances to his son and sorry for not knowing it earlier.

I think its him on the left in the photo?

 

To Degsy, Rest in peace.
