The son of Britain's oldest man who has died said his father had only ever wanted "to make a difference" to the lives of those less fortunate.
Reg Dean was heavily involved in charity work throughout his life and completed a sponsored walk from Nottingham to Derby at the age of 90.
Later, he set up a Fairtrade store in his downstairs lounge, when he still lived at home, calling the franchise Traidcraft - it became Traid Links and continues to successfully operate in Wirksworth to this day.
Mr Dean's son Christopher, said his father had told him he had no fear at the prospect of his death.
He told me he wasn't at all scared.
He said to me once 'I am living under a sentence of death - but I intend to take a long time about it.'
