Derek Wayne Dumas

February 27, 1969 – October 27, 2021
Derek was born in Kapuskasing, Ont. He passed away at Rivers Inlet at the age of 52 as a result of a diving accident.
He was predeceased by his father Wayne in 2012. He is survived by his wife Tandy and his son Landen of Mission, BC, his sister Shelly (Jim) of Nanaimo, BC, his mother Isabel of Courtenay, BC and many aunts and cousins in Ontario.
Derek graduated from Highland School in Comox. Moved to the mainland, he went to his dream job at West Bay Sonships, building luxury yachts. It was here where he met Tandy. After about 11 years he started his own company doing commercial installs.
Derek loved the water and his 32 ft sailboat. He was caretaker for many years of a fishing resort in Rivers Inlet.
He had an amazing talent for working with wood. We all have several items he made, from a Rolling Pin to furniture.


Tandy says – “No more left turns.”
Shelly says – “May the force be with you.”
