Derby family pay tribute to Eric Hurst - Mr Rolls-Royce
The family of a man who has been described as "Mr Rolls-Royce" have paid tribute to their "loving, kind and funny" relative.
Eric Hurst, who was a huge Derby County fan and friends with several former legends including Roy McFarland, has died aged 76.
He was a popular figure at Rolls-Royce, where he worked all of his life, and was a keen sports fan. Mr Hurst, who lived in Shelton Lock, was "like a dad" to his step-daughter, Sarah Meakins. He died after suffering a heart attack at the Royal Derby Hospital on September 14.
