PROUD, Derek:
The family wishes to announce the death of Derek Proud, previously of Moeraki and then Kaiapoi, who passed away on Friday, December 28, 2018, aged 89. He was a devoted husband of the late Dorothy (Elaine) Proud. A half brother to Tony Smith in the UK. He was a loving father to his five children: Jennifer, Belinda, Michael, Geoffrey and Christopher. Father-in-law to Kim, Stanley, Rose and José. He has many grandchildren and two great-grandchildren who were all very dear to him. A legend of a man to his family and friends, who finally gave up the fight, and will be missed by many.
"Sadly missed along life's way, quietly remembered every day....
No longer in our life to share, but in our hearts, you're always there".
