Picture of Malcolm John Duncan.

You were the best Dad anybody could have ever wished for, you were so special.

Always caring, understanding and interested in all I did, even though sometimes you may have secretly doubted my reasons!!, but you always had time to listen to what I had to say.

You always considered yourself one of the lads and would often accompany us lads (sons) on `Duncan Danger Days`, tramping trough muddy fields, up mountains, windsurfing, skiing, rock climbing, pot holing and sailing. Nothing seemed to phase you, even when faced with a force 10 gale on “Jabberwocky” off the French coast, or ascending a knife edge ridge on some obscure mountain. All you asked for at the end of the day was a `Jolly Big Cup of Tea`.

I will cherish the times I spent with you `Pops` down in Dorset and Somerset, walking on the coastal paths, swimming in the sea and eating the freshest of fish and chips at West Bay. West Bay will always be a special place for me as it was for you.

In the later years you became a wonderful Granddad. Aaron and Ben were always so excited knowing that we were to visit you. You always filled Aarons and Bens time with fun, laughter and love they will miss their `Granddad Malcolm` so much. They loved you so much. I will always remind them of their loving, caring and wonderful Granddad.

The special bond and understanding that you had with Kerry will remain forever.

Thank-you for all the many very special times we had together and the love and happiness you shared.

My memories will last forever. Locked in my heart you will always stay - I will love you and remember you each and every day.

I will miss you so much,

Love you `Pops` forever

Your loving son, Ian
