Derrel Robertson (1953 - 2004)
Derrel passed this year from
long term illness- brain cancer. He was a participant of the Lake 'O the
Pine Rally since the 2nd rally. The LOP Rally was always the highlight of
his life year after year.
Phil Dansby and Dave Howe can testify to Derrel's Lifetime of devotion to
his love of motorcycling and the camaraderie of his friends year after year
at the LOP rally.
I will miss him this year as we will all miss him for we have lost a jewel
in our lives in Derrel. We will all surely miss him in the years to come.
Some of us will
not recognize his name but would ---his face--
His enthusiasm and kind eyes
will be forever be lost to us in all our future rallies at the LOP..
Thank you Jamie King "The Ducati Boys"
Starting in 2005, the Best Italian Bike ridden to the rally Trophy will be
also known as the Derrel Robertson Memorial Award.
