MESSAGES for the family of Derek William Woodall


Jill Colbridge and family ( Nash Drug Company) when it was in the day.

 Always kind words and pleasantries for me and my son when we passed his home if he was out and about when we were passing either going to work or taking our son to school. Take care and condolences to his lovely family.


Trish Holmes
Derek was a wonderful neighbour to us on Whalley Rd CLM. Such a pleasant gent and we always looked forward to his hand drawn Christmas cards. Thinking of .you all at this sad time, may you rest in peace with a Jean X Trish Billy Elise and a Leighton Old neighbours from 471 Whalley Rd


Les Moore

A great friend for more years than I care to remember. Too many pints of mild in the Hyndburn, too many whisky chasers, too many late nights and don’t even mention John Dawson’s New Year’s Eve parties. Who will I put the world to rights with now? Rest in peace my friend.


Bill and Mary Hill

A long standing and loyal friend, he will be sadly missed, but the memories will always be there.


Elizabeth Cheesbrough and the Gilbraith family.

So sorry to hear of Derek’s death. Many happy memories of time spent with him. With our sympathy at this sad time. lizabe
