It is with profound sadness that the family of Paul "Derek" Ferrer announce his peaceful passing on August 27, 2022 at the age of 52 years. He was born in Tucson, Arizona on February 12, 1970 to Linda (Miller) Bradley & Paul Ferrer IV. He will be deeply missed by his siblings, Dayna Ferrer Dillon, Shannon Ferrer Bradley & Tracey Ferrer Mosier.
Derek graduated high school from Peoria High School in 1988. He was in the Army and was on stand by during Desert Storm. He then began working for Freeport McMoRan as an AA truck driver.
Derek absolutely loved watching football, especially his favorite team, the Green Bay Packers. He truly "Loved Those Packers". He was an avid fan of all sports. He enjoyed not only watching them but as a youth he participated in playing soccer, football & baseball. He was an awesome & competitive swimmer. He was known to "one up" his competition!
He was truly a gentle giant. He had a sweet kindness to all he knew. He was caring & compassionate. He would help anyone, he was honest & very respectful. He will be loving missed by his mother Linda M. Bradley of Thatcher, AZ., his siblings, Dayna F. Dillon of Wyoming, Shannon F. Bradley of Arizona, Tracy F. Mosier of Arizona, many other members of his family & his beloved friends.
Derek is preceded in death by his father, Paul T. Ferrer IV, both sets of his grandparents, several uncles, aunts & cousins.
Derek's wishes were to not have an organized service. Remember him as he was to you!!! A small "scattering of ashes" will take place at a later date.
