SALT LAKE CITY/PRICE - Our bright and shining light, Derrek Christopher Huff was extinguished far too soon on June 18, 2010.
He was born Aug. 31, 1986 in Price to Todd and Jana Patten Huff.
Derrek was a handsome young man who could win anyone over with his sense of humor and charming ways. He had a love for the game of golf that was nurtured by his grandpa John who got him started in the game with his first set of clubs at age 5. He will always hold a special place in his heart. Derrek was the most loving and caring older brother a little sister could have ever wanted. A day didn't go by without talking to his mom or grandma Sharon. They always stood by his side and loved him unconditionally.
Derrek is at peace now, after a hard fought and courageous battle with his inner demons. They can't hurt him anymore. Gone but always in our hearts and minds.
He will be dearly missed by his mother and stepfather, Brent and Jana Keil; his sister, Katelyn Keil; loving grandparents, John and Sharon Patten, and Betty Huff; many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends; and the love of his life, Nicole Keller. "To the stars and back, the memories of him will last forever."
Derrek was preceded in death by his father, who he loved and admired, Todd Huff; and his grandfather, Verl Huff.
"Goodbye for now my sweet boy. I love you. Till I see you again someday."
