Derk worked at Weyburn-Bartel Inc. and retired after 25 years in order to start his own lawn service business. He then worked at Shape Corp. and retired in March of 2022, after 22 years. Derk loved his dogs and had them throughout his life. He especially enjoyed his grand fur-babies who came to visit him on a regular basis, and he will be sadly missed by his family whom he loved very much. He enjoyed the get togethers.
