Derek was loved by many and had the kindest and loving and giving heart. He was never one to turn away a friend in need. He always had a way with children and animals and they in turn loved him. Growing up he seemed to always be drawn to all kinds of strays, two or four legged. He loved amusement parks and the scarier the ride the better. He was fearless. He was a loving father, a beloved son, brother, cousin and nephew and a true, loyal friend who will be missed beyond measure.
