Derek Brendon Lou LaCrete was born June 20, 1991 to Frantzy and Terri (Tapp) LaCrete in Norwich, Conneticut. He moved to the Lewellen area when he was 5. He attended area schools.
He enjoyed working outside, doing various types of construction. He did roofing, cement work, and was also OSHA certified to run a scissor lift. He worked in a wide variety of states from Florida to Connecticut to Nebraska and Wyoming.
Anyone that truly knew him could not help but love him for his big heart, his loyalty, and his honesty. He had a laugh that was contagious and gave hugs that made you feel like everything was alright in the world.
Brendon was a man that put his all into everything that he did, whether it was good or bad. I think that we all can learn a lesson from his life and do the same. He is a beloved son, brother, relative and friend. He will be dearly missed by all.
