Derik attended Longfellow Elementary, Washington Jr. High, North High School, and Graduated from East High School in 2004. Derik served honorably in the United States Marine Corps for 4 years.
From those who grew up with him to those who casually knew him, there are all stories to be told about Derik. Derik was unique and unforgettable and has left a positive impression on all of us.
I grew up with Derik and have known his family since Derik and I were in elementary school. I saw him within the last few months of his life as he let me know he was sick, we did not expect him to pass. This loss is tragic and unexpected for everyone who has known him. I have spent the last day with Derik's family talking and reminiscing and can say first hand what wonderful people they are and how much they would apprieciate your help. We are looking to raise money for his funeral services to give him the proper service that he deserves.
Please share because any little bit will help ease the burden at this already difficult moment. Any money raised will go directly to the family for funeral expenses at Greenlawn Mortuary on Panorama.
We will post updates with a date for the services as soon as possible.
