Derrick Thompson

April 13, 1968 ~ January 27, 2023 (age 54) 54 Years Old


Derrick Thompson was born April 13, 1968, to the union of Clyde Thompson and Merlene Tedford. He was born and raised in Ocala, Florida. Derrick accepted Christ at an early age and was an active member at Watula First Baptist Church. While attending Marion County Public Schools, he earned his diploma from Vanguard High School. After graduating, he worked in the food management industry for 23 years. The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Derrick. He enjoyed spending time with family, watching football and wrestling, and making others smile. His cheerful attitude and calm demeanor will be missed by many.  

Derrick made his transition to be with the Lord on January 26th, 2023. He leaves to cherish and celebrate his life, his daughter: Keidra Thompson; his sons: Ki’Derik Thompson and Kobe Thompson; a loving mother: Merlene Thompson; sister: Alfaye Thompson-Miller (Lil Bit); grandparents: Wilbert Cole and Rufus Brewton; his nieces: Morgan Miller and Marcella Miller; aunts: Dorothy Coleman, Sarah Gordon (Amos), Rosetta Brewton, Ernestine Tyler, Bonita Croskey; uncles: Willie Brewton (Ana), Randolph Brewton (Marlittia) and a host of cousins, relatives, and friends.
