Derrick Powers of Sand Lake, age 27, passed away unexpected on August 10th 2019. With deepest sorrow, our most beloved son, brother, uncle, family member and friend will be missed. Derrick cared about people in the purest way. He loved them for who they were and because he wished the best of them he donate his organs so others can live.
He had so much goodness he was thoughtful, kind, empathetic, and funny. But Derrick struggled the past few years of his life with severe depression and anxiety. He had worked very hard to overcome mental illness. It is right to acknowledge and honor the progress he had made, while recognizing the toll the struggle took on his life.
Derrick was born September 23, 1991, in Grand Rapids .
Derrick will be missed everyday by his mother Lora; his two brothers Nick and Mitch and his little sister Katelin. one nephew Xavier and two nieces Charliegh and Rhyan along with his friends and family.
Derrick is now with his grandparents John and Doloris Blue, his aunt Lora Montney, and dad Mike.
He is loved here on earth as well in Heaven.
We LOVE and MISS you so much my son. xoxo
A memorial service will be held in September.
