It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Derek Cook on August 10, 2017, after a brief battle with Cancer. Derek will be greatly missed by his wife Jennifer, sons Michael (Kate), Jared and Jason. His brother Philip (Pam), sisters Wendy (Jim), Sheila (David), and Kelly (Bob).
Derek recently retired from Okanagan College where he taught for 12 years in the Business Faculty. He came late to his career at the College, but in it, found his calling for teaching.
As requested there will be no funeral service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.
