Barrington, Derek Yorke

Sydney

 

We the family deeply regret to announce the sudden passing of our beloved son, brother, uncle, partner and friend, Derek Yorke Barrington on May 17, 2020 in Ingonish.

Born in Sydney on August 20, 1970, Derek was the son of Edward and the late Dianne (Mortimer) Barrington.

Derek was a Commercial Diver for 31 years, working alongside his Dad at Offshore Diving and Salvage Ltd. in Sydney and Connors Diving of Halifax. Derek was a very kind hearted person who would be the first to offer a helping hand if needed. He also had a great sense of adventure. Whether it was teasing the biggest lobster he could find underwater, climbing the tallest tree he could see or pushing rocks off the tallest cliffs he could find. He will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Derek Yorke, I will cherish the Love, Friendship, and Protection that we shared together to eternity. You are forever in the heart of your extended family, Aunt Rose Marie Meade Leblanc, Mother-in-law Mary Meade Dominique, sisters-in-law Karen Hansen and Katherine Dominique, nieces and nephews Brandyn, Justan, Logan, Elizabeth and Taylor. I am with you, Cindy Marie, your “Cindymin”.

Derek is survived by his Fiancé, Cindy Marie Meade, Sydney,his father Edward, Ingonish, his sister Sarah, Halifax, his aunts Denise (Don)Reese, and Jane (Ada) Williams, both of Halifax, his special niece Jessica Gillis, North Sydney and his special nephew Tristan Clarke, Glace Bay.

Derek was predeceased by his mother and both paternal and maternal grandparents.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Every Women’s Center, Saint Vincent de Paul and the SPCA.

A celebration of Derek's life will be held at a later date.
