Derek M. Meiklejohn, 70, of Manville, passed away peacefully on March 14, 2023, at Hope Health Hulitar Hospice Center.
Born in Providence on April 13, 1952, he was the son of Malcolm W. Meiklejohn who currently lives in Warwick and the late Ruth (Spooner)Meiklejohn.
He enjoyed skiing, whitewater rafting, softball and playing cribbage, especially with his father. Derek cared for people, the community and was very close to his friends. He was extremely loyal, loving and caring.
He was the brother of the late David W. Meiklejohn and is survived by three sisters Debbie Fales of Rhode Island, Dorothy Springmann of Virgina, and Carrie Teixeira of North Carolina, along with two nieces, Sarah and Rachel, and one nephew, Geoff. He had one daughter whom he loved.
There will be no funeral or memorial service. Donations to The American Cancer Society in his memory would be appreciated.
Derek, you have been a faithful friend to my family and a wonderful godfather to my son, Jordan. You cared deeply about the community that you lived in and tried to initiate change for the better. You were always willing to give a helping hand to loved ones. We love you deeply Derek. I have so many fond memories of you. Blessings to your family especially your dad!
