Derek Harvey

It was with great sadness that the Trust has learned of the passing of Jags fan Derek Harvey.

Derek was first introduced to the mysteries of Maryhill's Finest when studying at Glasgow University, but it was his meeting with, and marriage to, Maggie Forsyth that committed him to Partick Thistle. Joined by their daughter Fiona, the trio were a fixture at Firhill and at away matches until the end of last season when the long-term effects of his illness curtailed his movements.

Our sincere condolences are extended to Maggie and Fiona during this difficult time and details of the funeral service can be found below.

HARVEY DEREK. Peacefully, at The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, on 22nd August, 2017, aged 65, in the company of his wife, Margaret (Maggie) Forsyth and his daughter Fiona. A service will be held at the Linn Crematorium, Lainshaw Drive, Glasgow, G45 9SP on Wednesday, 30th August, 2017 at 12 noon. Family flowers only. A retiral collection will be taken for the work of The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice.

Please be aware that red & yellow colours at the funeral is optional, however they will be on prominent display.
