It is with deep sadness that we announce that Darren (Daz) Hack, husband to Emma and dad to Aimee and Olly, died peacefully on 21 September 2012 at the Marie Curie Hospice, Edinburgh.

The funeral will be held on Monday 1 October at 10am at the Borders Crematorium in Melrose. Family flowers only, donations can be made to Marie Curie please.

Following the service, Emma invites everyone to Pencaitland Bowling Club for Daz’s After Party and refreshments.

There will be a Memory Book available at both the Crematorium and the Bowling Club for you to write a message to Emma, Aimee, Olly and family.

Daz Hack: Request

Daz chose an eco-friendly cardboard coffin and asked for everyone to have a chance to either write a message or draw a picture on it. You can do so today, Friday, until 4pm, or tomorrow, Saturday, between 9am and 5pm, at the Co-operative Funeral Care, 96-98 High Street, Tranent.

Please try and make the time to do this over the next two days, as it was one of Daz’s last wishes.

Daz requested that people wear what makes them happy, for Daz’s colleagues, the wearing of police uniform to the Service is entirely optional.

    It seems only yesterday that Daz was in our kitchen demanding biscuits! Every time I think about him, it makes me smile. God bless him.

    Well said Ralph. I think the whole village is stunned by this news. Daz was such a cheerful, friendly, kind man. Full of spirit, and as you say, really easy to like and to chat to. It is incredibly sad and my thoughts are with Emma and all of Daz’s family. He will be missed by his friends and by this community. I hope he is at peace and that we can remember him as the smiley, fun loving character that he was.

    So very sorry to hear about Daz’s death. We chatted in what seemed like only a few months ago about him getting back to work, kids and all that other everyday stuff. He seemed so full of life then that I was genuinely shocked when I learned that he had died. I only knew Daz a little but he was the kind of guy it was very easy to like a lot. We’ll all be poorer for not having him in our lives.
