The sad news of Derek Hanson's passing on June 24th was a significant event for the Trillium Club. 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.
