He worked at numerous jobs, S.V.R.C.C. and Weyburn Taxi in Weyburn, at West Bend, B.C for the CPR Railroad and he lived briefly in Regina. Derrell was a very generous person. When his dad passed away in 1989 he looked after his mom until she moved to S.V.R.C.C. He was always fixing things for people. Derrell enjoyed playing cribbage, going for coffee, playing bingo and going to auction sales. Derrell had a love for dogs, which he had a number of, including Grizzy and Lady. Usually when Derrell was seen walking, he had a dog with him. He moved to the Weyburn Special Care Home in January of 2012. A Graveside Service will be held Saturday April 28, 2012 at 3:00 P.M. from Hillcrest Cemetery with Reverend John Ferrier officiating.
