The RNLI saves lives at sea.

Dighton Edwards

Also known as: Derry.

Picture of Dighton Edwards.

My dad was a dental surgeon in the Royal Navy, and Chief Dental Office to the Welsh Office. He died on 31st July 2009 from metastatic prostate cancer. He was a loving husband to Lucy, and a fabulous dad to Andrew and Jane. Instead of flowers we donated to the RNLI and raised £350. Dad would have been proud. He supported the RNLI in life and we will always remember him.
