Obituary for Derrick Winston

On the morning of Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at the time of 8:45 a.m. at Decatur Memorial Hospital; the Lord saw fit to close the book of life of our beloved Derrick Winston whom he allowed 53 years of presence on this earth. 

Derrick “Dee” as he was affectionately called, was born September 1, 1965 in Decatur, Illinois.  He was the son of Bill Winston and Betty R. (Martin) Graves. 

Derrick graduated from MacArthur High School in 1983 and was a member of the Antioch Missionary Baptist where he joined at an early age. He enlisted in the United States Army where he honorably served our country for three years.  He was employed at Caterpillar, Decatur.

Derrick was a very outgoing and sociable person.   He enjoyed music, sports, social gatherings, concert and anywhere he could have a good time.  You would often find him full of laughter when amongst family and friends.

He leaves to cherish his loving memories: his mother, Betty (Howard) Graves of Decatur, Illinois; father, Bill Winston of Goddard, Kansas; son, Dominique Winston of Jolon, California; sister, Jacque Winston of Decatur, Illinois; aunt, Shirley Floyd of Detroit, Michigan; great-aunt Eva Merritt of Cleveland, Ohio; nephews: Darna Joyner and Thomas Slaughter III of Decatur, Illinois and a host of other relatives and friends.   

Derrick was preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents, 3 aunts and 2 uncles.
