Derek battled with addiction for at least 15 years. He truly wanted to beat the demons and had 8 months clean when the demons took him. Derek has two beautiful daughters that were his motivation for life and being a better human. He also has 7 siblings that he loved and hated all at the same time. He was a free spirit, always giving and full of life. He had no fear and would try just about anything. His infectious smile, beautiful dimples, and easygoing nature will be greatly missed by so many. Rest easy "Coggy". We love you and miss you so very much.
