With such a cruel twist of fate, we lost Oliver (Vic) Vickers on 3rd December, at the Royal Derby Hospital, just twenty seven hours after the passing of his beloved wife of 56 years, Jean, mother of their seven children, they also leave eight grandchildren and ten great grandchildren.
Oliver grew up in Derby, then spent his early adult life serving with the Notts and Derbys Sherwood Foresters, first posted overseas in Singapore, then on to active service in Northern Ireland during the troubles. It was whilst on leave 'back home' that he met Jean and there began their lifelong journey together.
Oliver and Jean will be remembered in a double service at St. Michaels Church and afterwards at the Carnfield Club, Lees Lane, of course, any friends, neighbours or colleagues, are most welcome to attend the service at church and join with their life remembrance celebration afterwards.
Full floral sprays are being provided by the family and Oliver had also expressed his preference for donations towards Cancer Research rather than any guests' financial outlay on flowers, believing it to have a more worthy, long term effect.
