It is with great sadness that we announce the Death of Derrick William Dreaddy of Fort McMurray, Alberta who passed away on June 5th, 2020 at the age of 61.
Derrick was an avid hunter and ATV enthusiasts that loved the outdoors, including camping with family members and friends as a good way to relieve stress. He was born and raised in the small western community of St. George's, NFLD. Often he would reminisce of the fond memories he had of a close knit family, as well as the close friends he had as a boy and young man in St. George's, before leaving to find work and making his home in Alberta.
For the last 40 years or so Derrick lived in Alberta working mostly as a Auto Body Technician, Equipment Operator and a hobby Mechanic to which he was very good at and enjoyed. He was a very well liked individual who got along with everyone especially co-workers.
