Douglas K. Derrick

AGE: 60 • Hockessin

Douglas K. Derrick, age 60 of Hockessin, DE, passed away suddenly on Monday, January 4, 2016.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his wife, Janice (Marchlewski); his daughter, Andrea Knight (Lennon); his stepchildren, Steven Hall (Debbie) and Lindsey Hall; his sister, JoAnn Leary (Mike); his brothers, David and Gary Derrick; and his "pet-son", Bucky.

After graduating Conrad High School, Doug worked for DuPont and later, with his brother, Gary, started Advance Window and Siding. Retiring five years ago, he returned to his calling of service when he became an UBER driver. Doug's many interests included cooking, traveling, gardening, wildlife, disc golf, and his beloved Dallas Cowboys.

Though Doug may be gone, all whom he touched while on this earth will remember him and miss him dearly.

A memorial service will be held at 11:30am on Saturday, January 9th, 2016 at the Doherty Funeral Home, 3200 Limestone Road, Wilmington, DE 19808, where family and friends may visit beginning at 10:00am.

At the request of his family, we ask that you consider following Doug's example as a donor and choose to give the gift of life.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Faithful Friends, 12 Germay Drive, Wilmington, DE 19804 or to the World Wildlife Fund, P.O. Box 97180, Washington, DC 20090-7180.
