Seguin, Derek Murray

December 21, 1972-May 20, 2022

It is with deepest sorrow we announce that Derek Murray Seguin passed away Friday, May 20, 2022, at Health Sciences North after a long battle with cancer. He died peacefully with his mom and stepdad by his side.

Derek was a loving son and best friend to his mother Bev. Derek had a heart of gold and those who knew him lost a shining light in their lives. Derek was a hard worker and worked at many different jobs learning things that he carried into his home life. He always seemed to surprise us with a solution to an issue or problem.

Derek will be sadly missed everyday by many people. He is survived by his father Richard Seguin, his mother Beverley Watts and stepdad Gerry Watts Sr., brothers Rod Seguin, Dennis Seguin, Gerry Watts Jr. and their families. Derek will also be missed by his loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and many great friends.

Derek was an avid outdoorsman, he loved being in the bush and spent all his spare time fishing. He especially looked forward to the annual fishing trip at the Wenebegon with his best friend Gene and the boys.

As per Derek’s wishes there will be no memorial services.

  1. This news has struck me at my core. I am saddened by this news and to Bev and the boys, I am so so sorry for this tremendous loss you are all facing. I have many wonderful, beautiful memories that I will forever keep in the depths of my soul. I knew Derek the boy and I knew Derek the man and his laugh never changed, it continued to bubble up in him as an adult with the spirit of a child, what could one not love about that… I will never forget you!

  3. Growing up i’ve had the pleasure of knowing Derek. We spent allot of time just making each other laugh. We were both very good at it. I’ll miss his laughter the most. He was my best friend.

    When we were together, I was always surprised how many people Derek would run into and they all regarded him as a dear friend. That was Derek. No matter who he met, he always found a way to relate, empathise and make you feel like he was your best friend. He was rich with friends and he touched many lives.

    I sorely miss him

  4. Our condolences to Derek’s family and friends. He was our tenant for many years and our friend. One winter, he and his friend Mat built a snow house on our driveway. It was huge, complete with sleeping quarters and a dining room. Of course, it stood It’s ground well into spring. I also remember him telling me, as politely as he could, that our tiller was an antique. He fixed it for us and tested it out by tilling our garden. We paid him in tomatoes. We have many memories that bring a smile. He will always be remembered with respect, kindness and humour.
    Rest in peace Derek.

  9. I am so sorry to hear of Dereks passing. The road has been long and hard and now there is no more pain, no more weeping for him but continues for those he left behind. Love and prayers goes out to all of you. I am reminded of something someone once told me in a period of mourning, “The body is just a vessel that the soul lies in”. If we beiieve that the soul does not die then we know Derek is still around you and you will feel his love and strength when you need it most.
    God bless you all.
