Using past-tense terms to remember Derek feels so incredibly wrong. He was someone you could always rely on in a pinch. Making people happy was a mission for him- be it through food, laughs or just his time. His family was his life. He had a big heart and good soul. He could sweet talk his way out of pretty much anything, and he knew it. He loved to be in nature, it was transformative for him. He respected it and enjoyed it more than anything. I am blessed to have known him and shared so many memories in the mountains with him. We would strap that “lost canoe” to the roof of my car and head out for the weekend every chance we got, which seemed like every weekend. Rem-dog standing proud on the middle console road dogging and Pint-miser hanging out the back window, ears flapping in the wind.. Blasting classic rock and forgetting everything we left behind just for a few days. I’ll never forget his amber eyes and big goofy grin. He will forever have a piece of my heart and I will never, ever forget him.

Love you for always, Derek.
