Derek, it's so hard to believe that you have left us. You will always remain that kid cousin that I loved running the country with. Rest in peaceful slumber.

Such a great guy, so sad for the loss so early in his life. Derek and I along with 4 others hired in to Eli Lilly to the same building on the same day, June 19, 1990. A major change in all of our lives, not knowing what to expect. We all kind of went separate ways after a couple of years. I bumped into Derek off and on for the next 10 years. He always had a smile. For the last 15 years of my career I was honored to work to work with him in EC, always very helpful and willing to share his expertise.He will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to the family. .

Derek was one of the most genuine, kind people we’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. He is already missed. All our sympathy and love.
Mike ODonnell left a message on January 14, 2021:
I had the pleasure of working with Derek for 10+ years while being the Dept Head of EC. Those years were the most enjoyable of my career due to working with people like Derek. He was not only a top notch operator, but he was a tremendous person to be around. He always came to work with a smile on his face and was a positive influence on me and others in the dept. I was shocked to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Dishon and extended family. He will be missed.

Derek was a great co- worker of mine I met shortly after starting EVONIK. I was put on nights and was so happy he was on my shift he made it enjoyable to come in I always enjoyed his input and company!!! He also introduced me to the best splitting ax I’ve ever used the x-27 which now every friend I have uses this ax!!! Your a great man and will be greatly missed!!!

Aiden Saks left a message on January 13, 2021:
Never have I known somebody quite so kind and genuine. I will every single day miss the opportunity to find myself in the company of somebody that I look up to and agree with. I look forward earnestly to when we meet again, in order to make up for everything we didn’t have the chance to do here on earth. My only hope is that the lives we lead going forward are ones that honor the legacy of what we have been left with, in hopes that we all one day leave this place better than we found it, as those who came and gone before us have. My love to everybody in these tumultuous times.

It’s been 11 years since I’ve seen Derek, but I had the opportunity to work around him several times over the years. He was always a joy to work with, very dependable, and great at his job. I’m glad I got the chance to know him. Gone too soon. Rest In Peace. My sincere condolences go out to the family, as I’m sure he will be sorely missed.
