Melting family, my sincere condolences on your loss. I knew Derek from Wells Fargo and while we did not work directly together he was the most friendly and pleasant person who never failed to say hello and ask how you were. He always had a smile for everyone. Heaven has an amazing new angle. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May the Lord bless and keep you all in his grasp.

Derek you will be greatly missed!

My prayers go out to all of you. I knew Derek from working at Wells Fargo in the Home Equity Department. Derek was one of my "go-to" underwriters. No matter how busy he was, he always had time to discuss a file and assist in any way he could. He will be missed.

My sincerest condolences. I worked with Derek at Diners Club over 20 years ago and then with Samantha at BofA in Jacksonville. I remember Parker as a toddler, our ways parted before Maxim was born. Wishing you strength as you rely on each other to get through this. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

Samantha, Parker & Max,
Words cannot express how saddened I am by the loss of your husband/your father. Although I didn’t get to meet him, I heard all about Derek through pictures and stories you shared, Samantha. I know he was a wonderful, loving man who will be so sorely missed. I also know the world is a darker place without him. May he Rest In Peace. And may you always be comforted by your memories of him.
