Fuston and left this life on April 15, 2019 at the age of 73.  Derrel lived his young life in Turkey, Texas.  As a young man he played football and ran track for Turkey High School.  He met the love of his life during his time at Turkey High, Caroll Beth Cotten.  They married on December 7, 1964 and welcomed their first daughter, Anna Lynette soon after.  Derrel held many jobs as he began their young family finally settling in Houston, Texas in 1973.  


Next, he moved his family to Dallas, Texas where their family grew by two.  Their second daughter, Kristi Jean was born with Heather Dawn filling in the final spot of their family.

He was a loving Grandfather to Cody Marek and his wife Heather, Cameron Marek and Kristy Fulwood, Morgan Witt, Peyton Witt, and Hayden Kendrick.  Derrel had the joy of loving his great-grandchildren, Carson Marek, and Wyatt Marek.

Dear Derrel, you have mentored me throughout the years, been a constant friend and given me confidence to excel at my job. Today I fondly recall the wonderful bits of wisdom you would share with me about everything - about gardening, fishing, life in Texas, your formative years as a programmer etc. You will be missed. Rest in peace.

To the family,
My sincere condolences in the passing of Derrel. Please find comfort in the words of John 5:28, 29: "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment." Everyone (including Derrel) will be resurrected. They will enjoy life in Paradise. (Luke 23:43) To learn more about these wonderful blessings please go to jw.org.
