Derek Joseph ElliottNovember 5, 1991 ~ August 31, 2017 (age 25)
Derek Joseph Elliott, 25, of Brunswick died unexpectedly in his home on August 31, 2017. Derek was born on November 5, 1991 at Parkview Hospital in Brunswick, Maine. He went to Brunswick schools until he graduated from A.R. Gould in 2010.
Derek was outgoing and enjoyed working outside, in the most recent years he worked at Hawkes tree service & Gerald Landscaping until his most recent job change leading him to the ocean. He was a lobsterman on board of the “KE” for Scott Merryman until his unexpected passing.
Derek’s smile was contagious &n his eyes were unforgettable, giving him one of the many different nick names “Baby Blue”. To many he was a breath of fresh air and was a genuine person. He was also the type who never cared what anyone thought (other than how his hair looked) & continued to do what he wanted giving him the nickname “honey badger”.
If you knew Derek you know he was fearless, especially when it came to riding his motorcycle. He enjoyed drag racing in Oxford, popping wheelies and learning new tricks. He also loved riding around with friends at any chance he could. BRAAAP… BRAAAP!
Derek leaves behind his mother, Paula Elliott of Brunswick; his father, Ian Elliott of Topsham; his older brother, Danny Elliott and his wife Kaylea of Cundys Harbor along with their daughter, Aleah; his younger brother, Devin Elliott of Topsham. Derek also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins and countless amounts of friends who adored him.
