The family and friends of Derrick Simmons are uniting to raise money to help his family to lay him to rest. Please show your support!

Derrick Simmons: Best Friend, Brother from a different Mother, Good person. Known as Big D to his friends, that nickname could as aptly reflect the size of his heart as to the size of his frame. I knew Derrick for over 20 years. He was my best friend and we were nearly inseparable for most of those years. No matter what life through at Big D, he always persevered. He also was always working a plan. Whether it be running a candy store out of his bedroom window as a kid, to ruling the Junior Achievement business, or running a successful DJ business, Big D was always trying to improve his life. Losing Derrick has been very hard. He was such a great friend and caring, giving person. The world will not be the same without him. If the measure of a man is taken by the friends he left behind, then Derrick was truly a great man. Here are a few quotes from his friends: "You made us laugh until we cried, and you were there for us whenever we needed you" "This world lost a great guy and a hilarious F-Zero player" "He taught me to love without boundary and to deeply care for everyone around me, even the ones who often remain unseen by others. His life made a huge difference in so many lives" RIP Big D

Derrick "Big D" Simmons was there for so many people. He gave his time and resources to help as many people as he good. Derrick's Family needs us now. At this time, it appears that Big D did not have life insurance and so now his family faces the daunting prospect of paying for his funeral. Derrick's family needs $8000-$12000 dollars to take care of the funeral expenses and unfortunately there is not a lot of time to get this money put together. I am hoping that through this web page we can raise this money.

Thank You
