Derrek Joseph Peszat, 22, passed away in his home Monday, May 15, 2017.
Derrek was known for his contagious grin and his affection for his nieces and nephews. He had an energetic spirit and held immense pride for his work with the Lilly company. He pestered people in good fun and you could not help but love him for it. He was known his uncanny ability to get out of trouble. They say youth is wasted on the young, but it was not wasted on Derrek. He worked hard and played harder.
Derrek is survived by his mother, Chrissy Jessogne; brother Matt Jessogne; sister Jessica Frahm Harris and brother-in-law Adam Harris; sister Corrie Jessogne Martin and brother-in-law Dakota Martin; and maternal grandparent Liz Frahm. He is also survived by nieces (Emily, Aubree, Macie, and Ada), nephews (Rylan, Lawson), and other loving family and friends.
Derrek was predeceased by his maternal grandparent, police officer Robert Arthur Frahm.
Funeral Services will be Saturday, May 20, 2017 at 6 p.m. at Stanly Funeral and Cremation Care. His service will be held in the Funeral Home Chapel at 6 p.m. officiated by Rev. Rufus Fulcher with visitation to follow.
