DEEGAN, Derek J.
February 5, 1940 - January 15, 2012
After a long battle, beloved husband and best friend, Derek James Deegan passed away peacefully January 15, 2012 surrounded by his family. He leaves behind his wife of nearly 46 years, Gail, children Chris, Pat (Sarita), Alanna (Scott), his treasured grandchildren, James, William and Emma, brother Bryan (Lynn), sister Sherrill Wasacz and many nieces and nephews. He enjoyed a prominent career at Canadian Pacific Ltd, was Grand Marshall of the 1993 St. Patrick's Parade in Montreal, an award winning athlete, coach and volunteer, but most of all, a great father. "Do what you've got to do." A private ceremony will be held in Victoria, with a memorial mass to be held in Canmore, Ab. at a later date. In Lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Kidney Foundation would be appreciated.
