Death of a Retired Police Officer : PC 878 Derek Horn

It is with deep regret that we inform you of the death of a retired Police Officer, PC 878 Derek Horn, who died at St Teresa’s Hospice, Darlington on Sunday 16th October 2022, aged 85 years.

Derek joined Durham County Constabulary in 1965.  His first posting was at Jarrow where he worked on Motor Patrols.  He transferred to Barnard Castle in 1970, before moving to Eggleston in 1976, where he remained until his retirement in 1989 as a result of ill-health.

Derek is survived by his wife Deleno, daughter Louise, daughter Michelle and her husband Lee and their three daughters, Hannah, Rebekah and Francesca.  Our thoughts are with them all at this sad time.
