Declan was the much-loved husband of Christine, father of Darren and George, brother of Paul and friend to many.

Declan was a retired teacher and businessman and a well-respected member of the community. He was proud to have served for 10 years as a Trustee of the Dibden Allotments Fund, helping many local families. He was also a Life President of Fawley RFC, having started the now-thriving Mini-Rugby section some 30 years ago. He will be much missed by all who knew him.
