It is my sad duty to report that Dereck Woodward passed away this past Wednesday after a long battle with Mesothelioma.
"Derck" as he was known here was an avid electric flyer and long time contributor here at WattFlyer. He wrote a coulmn for "Quiet and Electric Flight International" called "Over Here"
I met Dereck for the first time at our very first Electrics over Tidewater event where I was just a participant. He continued to come and cover our event for their magazine for many years.
His British sense of humor would keep us all laughing everytime he was around.
A super nice guy that will be sorely missed by all.
God Speed Dereck
