I worked with Derrick in Baja, MX for UnCruise Adventures. We didn’t work together for a long time but he made an impression on me. We came from very opposite places in life but he always made time for a conversation and always made time for adventure and new things. My condolences to his family and those who loved him.

We only had the privilege of knowing Derrick in person for one fantastic week in March 2019. Derrick was an extraordinarily kind, generous, and hilarious person. It was a privilege to spend joyful evenings chatting away and to hear stories of his life that he shared with us. He went above and beyond for us and truly made our trip. We were so lucky to stay in touch with him after we left Mexico, and hoped one day to welcome him to Australia for a visit. We were shocked and deeply sad to hear of his passing, and wanted to pass on our deepest condolences to his family. Derrick was a remarkable person who was loved by many across the world, and he is sorely missed. With love from Australia, the Heywood family.

I had the honor of working with Derrick in Southeast Alaska and Baja with Uncruise. I was always so impressed by his hard work and calm demeanor, and his general kindness. Although we worked in different departments, it was always great seeing him around the ship and during meal times. He will seriously be missed and I am sad to not have more chances to work with him. I will always remember his smile.

My heart goes out to you Mrs. Reese, Petey, Danielle, Kourtney, family and friends. My son, Chaz and Derrick have been friends for years, and I must say that Derrick was a "true friend". I am still having a hard time believing that someone as loving, kind, and non judgemental is no longer here. I just have to trust that God called him home for a reason. I know after talking to you Mrs. Reese that Derrick's heart was broken over his Dad's passing, maybe God knew he needed to be with him. Love and Prayers Always

Anthony Cuffee left a message on May 15, 2021:
I have many memories of Derrick, as he was my roomate for several years. He had long conversations, ate cheesecake like the golden girls, laughed until we cried, and argued like brothers. I will always remember his energy, and I am, like the rest of you, beside myself after learning of his sudden passing. To the family, if it is any condolence at all, please know that Derrick knew God. In fact, I remember him always humbling himself before every meal and giving thanks no matter where we were and how many people were around. He was committed to his faith. It is my prayer for you and everyone else who knew Derrick, that you find some peace in his memories knowing that he now rests eternally with the creator,. My prayer for everyone is this: that Derrick's memory will forever and always serve the us all as a continuous blessing, and enlighten us for the connections that remain with us today. May his energy radiate with us all, giving us humor, thoughtfulness, faith and style. Amen.

Letter from Heaven When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not here to see, if the sun should rise and find your eyes, filled with tears for me. I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today, while thinking of the many things we didn't get to say. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, and each time you think of me, I know you'll miss me too. When tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, I'm right there in your heart.

I love you Derrick. I wish you would’ve gotten the chance to see the kids like we had planned. I was so excited to show you my new addition. It’s okay. I know you’re with your dad and our grannies, grandpas, aunts, uncles, etc. and i know you’re loving on them like you did here with us. Since you couldn’t meet the new addition i did the honors of giving him your nickname “rico” to always keep you near. I love you cousin. Rest peacefully

Dear Derrick, it’s so hard to even begin to write this but I know you’re in a better place... I’ve known you for 30 plus years and you’re the best man I’ve ever known besides your dad and Petey... Make sure that that you continue to fly high over us and please give my mom a hug and let her know that I miss her so much... It will never be the same without you and I just wish I could have say goodbye... There will be no one like you EVER... Continue to rest in paradise, until we meet again... Love Mia
