RIP Derek Waugh


It was with great and genuine sadness that members heard last week of the passing of Derek Waugh. Derek arrived in Ayr twenty-seven years ago and had been an enthusiastic stalwart of the community, more recently including our own club.

In a moving tribute to Derek at Masonhill Crematorium, the Rev Fraser Aitken ably described Derek’s affable character and his uncomplaining commitment to family, friends, church, and those less able than himself.

Most of us will have our own particular memories of Derek but all recollections will include his friendliness and the always-apparent twinkle in his eye.

RIP Derek – a true gentleman.
