Derek Mathieu Larson entered into life November 17, 1990 in Phoenix, Arizona and entered into rest February 14, 2011 in Glendale, Arizona.

Derek was a young man full of life and loved his electric guitar, skateboarding and biking. He had a twinkle in his eyes that could melt your heart. Derek lost his life due to a severe battle of drug addiction and has now finally found some peace and is no longer in pain. We will all miss you Derek but are comforted knowing you are with the Lord now and at peace.

Survived by his Mother Staci Jo Fagan, Father Robert A. Larson, Big brother Justin Larson, Great Grandmother Doris Williams and Marie Brueggemeyer, Aunt Christy and Laurie, and multiple cousins.
