The Magnum Opus family is sad to announce the passing one of our founders and friends, Derrik Poitevint. We mourn with, and offer our full support to his family during their time of need. We will continue in his absence in a manner that he would have wanted.
There are no words to describe how devastated our family is. We appreciate those who have already reached out to us, offered condolences, helped with meals, and hugs. Thank you to everyone who respected our family to allow us to publicly announce this when we were ready.
Funeral services will be Tuesday at 1pm at Cedarlawn Cemetery here in Sherman. This will be a graveside service with an indoor area available on site if weather does not permit. Derrik will be laid to rest next to his beloved mother, Sandra Croteau . Derrik’s wishes were to not be embalmed, so in turn, this will be a closed casket service.
If anyone feels called to send plants or flowers for Derrik, they can do so to Waldo’s Funeral Home here in Sherman, who will bring them to his service.
