Our charismatic and beautiful son, grandson, nephew, brother, and uncle, Derrek Tousignant, died Saturday morning -the victim of a long-term drug addiction that wreaked havoc on his body. We loved Derrek with all of our hearts, but we know that was not enough to shield him from the world. We write this with the hope that it may provide an insight to those who might see themselves headed down the same path as Derrek. We beg you to seek help. Who knows? Derrek’s death might just save someone’s life.
The worry that we have felt watching Derrek struggle, has been replaced by a deep feeling of loss that now exists knowing we will never see his smiling face again. The picture you see here shows he reserved his best smile for his nephews who he loved so very much.
To all young people battling this demon called addiction, this plea is a simple reminder that there are people who love you with everything they have and no matter what you do - don't be too afraid/ashamed/scared, too anything, to ask for help. To all parents, pay attention to your children and the world that revolves around them - even when the surface is calm, the water may be turbulent just beneath.
Derrek’s struggles have ended. He is finally at peace. We will miss him more than words can say. Many have asked, “How can I help?” The immediate need would be financial gifts to help us with his final expenses. Fisher Funeral Chapel will waive any of the fees associated with the online credit card donation so 100% of your donation goes directly to his account at the funeral home. You may also make donations at their office at 1801 Chase Road. We are keeping things modest as he would have wanted. No gift is too small. Every little bit will help. Any funds over our goal will be used to pay for a cemetery lot and to buy a monument to mark his grave. Even if you can’t donate, please share this as the message is more important than the crowdfunding.
One final thought, never take anyone or anything for granted for we never know what tomorrow will bring. Tell the ones closest to your heart that you love them. Thank you and God Bless!

I’ll never forget the first time meeting Derrek. Your dad asked if I could go pick him up, Michelle had his truck. Not knowing what to expect, he got in my car and talked the whole way home. Very sorry that addiction took his life
