Obituary for Derrick James DeRyan
Derrick James DeRyan was called home to continue his walk with Jesus on December 29, 2019 at the age of 31. He was driving home from work down the icy Highway 206 when he lost control around one of the dangerous mountain bends.

Derrick is survived by his parents, Roberta Calkins and Gregory DeRyan; fiancé Jasmine; and children Chloe, Asher, and newborn Jaxyn; with sisters Rachel, Heather and Kami, as well as, several aunts, uncles and extended family that all loved him dearly.

Derrick was born on March 27, 1988 in Coeur D’ Alene, Idaho to Roberta Calkins and Gregory DeRyan. He received his GED from Job Corps in 2007. Derrick went on to be “Self Made” as he called it (Hardscape and Interior Remodeling) and became a professional at everything he set his mind to. He worked so hard to teach himself everything he conquered.

Derrick was a devoted father to 3 beautiful children and wonderful partner to his beloved. He loved to fish, shed hunt, play disc golf, snowboard, and especially play scratch tickets/pull tabs. He really believed he was going to hit the jackpot one day. He was considered by many as the luckiest man they knew. Derrick was also the Minnesota Vikings, number one fan! He was a natural born athlete and truly loved all sports! He will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him.

A Celebration of Life service is scheduled for 12:00 p.m. on February 1 at Foothills Community Church located at 11102 N Forker Rd, Spokane, Washington 99217. From there, we will all gather at Chinese Gardens at 5207 E Trent Ave, Spokane, WA 99212 to share memories of Derrick.
