Derrick was the life of the party…the biggest jokester you would ever meet. He always had a big smile on his face and would light up any room. “I love you” was a big part of his vocabulary. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and golfing. He had a big interest in guns and loved to re-load ammunition with his father. Derrick was a family man and especially loved to be around children. Some of his favorite hobbies included drawing with his daughter, “spa dates” with his girls, and wrestling with his boys.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his fiancé Brittany Webb of Covington; six children, Azaria, Skyler, Kenah, Mikai, Amiah and Cohen all of Covington; brothers, Darrell Liptrap of Greenville, Virginia, Aaron Robertson of Stuarts Draft, Atley Robertson & wife Bethany of Hot Springs, Virginia, Clinton Robertson of Hot Springs; Grandmother, Betty McLaughlin of Stuarts Draft; Grandmother, Mary “Sissy” Taylor of Stuarts Draft; Father-in-law & Mother-in-law, Jeff “Jack Rabbit” & Crystal Robertson & son Nathanial of Hot Springs; Special Aunt and Uncle, Matthew & Una Liptrap of Stuarts Draft; and numerous Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Friends.
