Derek was born in Northumberland England. He attended St. Mary’s Roman Catholic School, trained as a heavy-duty mechanic, and immigrated with his family to Canada in 1975. He worked in Northern Manitoba in the mine industry and shortly after relocated to Sparwood B.C. where he made many friends and great memories. Derek was a motorcycle enthusiast and always had a project or idea in the works but most of all he cherished his family and many furry friends. He will be sorely missed by all that had the pleasure to know and love him.
There will be no Service by request. A gathering will be held at a later date.
