Derek W. Houchins, 44, passed away April 8, 2022 at home after an extended hospital stay for multiple health problems.

Born May 27, 1977 in Prince George’s County Maryland he was the son of Shirley Patrick of Randleman, NC and the late Frederic Houchins.  He was raised in Pipestem West Virginia and was a graduate of Hinton high school.
