Derek was an excellent carpenter. He could make, build and draw just about anything. His favorite job was working at This and That with David Sheets. Derek loved his family and friends with all his heart. He had the biggest and purest heart. Since his crash and his brain injury, he met so many wonderful people, especially his BIG Support Group and West Virginia Paralyzed Veterans.

Thank you so much to Dr. Tom Takubo and Pulmonary Associates, Thomas Memorial Hospital, Dr. Howard Lafferty, Boone Memorial Hospital, Boone Home Care, Viemed Healthcare, We Care Medical, and CAMC Group.

A special thanks to Horne Brothers Communications, Jack Horne, Charles Horne and Tim Baucom.
