Deryk was a loving, patient, gentle and kind husband father and son. Deryk had many amazing traits, his nicknames were Mr. Fix It or MacGyver, he was able to fix or rig up anything to make life easier for those around him, he enjoyed spending time with his kids, enjoying their accomplishments and camping.
