RIP Mark “Kinger” King

Dear Member,

It is with immense sadness that I write to inform you of the untimely passing of one of our fellow members Mark King who died on Sunday after a mountain bike accident.

Know universally as ‘Kinger’ he was a massive part of DRFC in his playing days in the 1st XV, Derelicts and also leading from the front as Club Captain from 1998-2000.

More recently he has been an active member of the Committee contributing in helping get the Club to the healthy position it finds itself into today. Many of you will have known him as the voice on the microphone during 1st XV home games.

So many of us all have so many happy and fond memories of Kinger and our thoughts are with his wife Jane, his children Jasper, Archie, Grant, Hannah and all the family at this most difficult of times.

Kevin Beal
Hon Secretary
