April 15, 1941 – February 21, 2016
We sadly said goodbye to Derek York on Sunday afternoon Feb. 21st 2016, after 7 very unfair years dealing with Alzheimer’s. Born April 15th 1941, he is survived by his wife Lee, daughter Lindsey, her husband Arlen and their three children Jonah, Ellie and Eastyn. He is predeceased by his mother and father and son Damon in 2010.
Derek worked with the CVRD as Manager of Engineering Services from 1988 until his retirement in 2006. He was an active member of Rotary in both Duncan and the Comox Valley.
His witty comebacks, knowledgeable smile, determination and ability to fix just about everything will forever be missed.
The family is hosting a casual open house on March 12th from 1:00-4:00 pm in Comox so that family, friends and coworkers can come together to remember, share, tell stories and enjoy each others company. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
