Derold will be remembered for being one of the most kind, gentle and caring people we have ever met. We are glad to have had him in our family.

To Nan, Meredith, and the family, My deepest sympathy to all of you at this time. Derold was definitely a wonderful man. This was evident on a daily basis by his calm demeanor, his gentleness, and kindness. He was never heard to say a cross word or have any negativity. He never complained and really seemed to take life as it came to him. It was obvious that he was loved by all of you and that he had been a wonderful husband, dad, and grandpa. I will always remember Derold. I considered it a privalege to know him, to care for him, and to spend time with him and with you. I know that Derold is with the Lord and is at peace. He was a strong man, this was evident throughout his stay at Dove. I hope that God's grace and mercies help you through this time. I will certainly miss Derold, and he will always have a special place in my heart. He will forever be a member of the Dove family as well. Sincerely, Julie

Nanette and Family, Uncle Derold will be remembered by me as a kind soul with so many memories of growing up on the dairy farm in Dale, with my dad, Gene, and all his brothers and sisters. He could play a mean polka on his button accordian and just about any song by ear. We had many a good time at family reunions and visits throughout the years, and Uncle Derold would be the highlight. I remember visiting as a small girl, the trips from Arizona to Wisconsin and visiting all the cousins. Uncle Derold and Nanette ventured to Arizona in the 90's and stayed with us before going to Prescott to visit my dad. I remember the trip in we made with my dad and my husband, John, to visit when he and Nanette lived in Pela. John caught several wagon loads of carp, and took them to the neighbors to smoke them in the smoker. He had a beautiful garden and lots of berries and hummingbirds and hollyhocks. He will be missed. Nanette, Jim and Jerry, know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Sincerely, Rose Bohren and John Torbyn

Derold, thank you for being the dad I never had. A dad who loved and accepted me for who I am. Thank you even more for loving my children as your own grandchildren; you were, and will always be, their Gramps. We thank you for your patience, kindness, and ability to welcome us into your life as part of your family. I have never known a person so kind in spirit - never a harsh or unkind word for anyone. Thank you for being you. I love you now and I will love you forever.
