I can't tell you how many times this past year I stopped to think, "I wonder if Derek is going (to such-and-such an event", "I wonder what Derek thinks about this breach news", and then remember.. I have to ask him thru a different medium now. He was too young to go. --Barb Hall

Derek was a colleague and I got to know him on a project and a couple of work outings, he was a good guy and I enjoyed talking with him, it was far too soon for him to go.

I met Derek back in 2010 as an industry colleague. We worked together and socialized together also -- the board games! We attended security conferences together -- I recommended him for two positions, and happily. He was a dedicated engineer. I feel so remarkably stunned. He spoke so highly of his sister and folks. My sympathies to his family --

I had the great pleasure of meeting Derek through work in 2011, and he became a great friend. We are so glad he was able to spend a Thanksgiving with our family, and I have many fond memories of attending security conferences alongside Derek.

Derek was kind and loyal. So very smart and well-informed. I know he was devoted to his family and was a very good friend. He will be very missed.

My deep condolences to the family.

He was taken from us way too soon. He was a wonderful friend who leaves a very big hole behind. Much love to all.
