Derek was a great husband and father, who loved his Angel. The last five years of his accomplished life, he drove trucks and had the privilege to see the world. He enjoyed life to the fullest and never worried about tomorrow. Derek was the life of the party, always showing those around his great sense of humor.

To know him was to love him. He will be dearly and deeply missed.
