Derek's Son, Cole's Future

Derek Rockholz, 38 years young, a kind generous and loving soul died unexpectedly in his home on September 2, 2019. 

Derek was most happy when he married the love of his life, Phoebe, and together in 2010, they brought Cole, their beautiful baby boy into the world.

Derek and Cole cherished their time together creating everlasting memories as could be seen by the smile on both of their faces. Derek's love and knowledge for all sports, especially the NY Mets and NY Giants, was passed on to Cole. 

With this fund it is my  hope to bring family and friends together to express our love for Derek by supporting his son Cole's future.  An education trust is being established and this GoFundMe campaign will help to start the fundraising effort while the trust is coming together.

Please consider a donation in Derek's memory to achieve his hopes and dreams for his son's future.

With Sincere Gratitude,
Loving Mother and Grandmother
