We are saddened by the loss of DEPG volunteer, Mike Evans, who passed away on Saturday 21st October 2023, just short of his 64th birthday, after a long and difficult battle with cancer.
Mike had been an active member of the team for many years, and was often to be found working on a Class 14 ‘Teddy Bear’, or more recently on Class 52 D1010 ‘WESTERN CAMPAIGNER’, as his love for diesel-hydraulics was legendary.
Although a native of South Wales, Mike lived and worked in Devon and often used his professional skills as a surveyor for the benefit of the DEPG.
He will be sorely missed. Our thoughts go out to his family and his friends at this very sad time.
