John Derrick Rickman, born Ralph Derrick Parham, on April 13, 1962, in Macon Georgia. He passed away on Wednesday, November 21, 2018, after a 17 month battle with brain cancer.

Derrick was preceded in death by mother La Rue Carmichael Rickman, father John D. Rickman, and grandfather Edward Carmichael. He is survived by his wife of 35 years, Cheryl Ann Rickman, son Jacob Andrew Rickman and wife Hillary, son Joshua Aaron Rickman and wife Suzanna, and daughter Cassie La Rue Williams and husband James, father in law Amil M. Baker, Jr., and wife Carole, cousins Kelly Brustman and husband Peter, Randy Higgison and wife Anne, Alyce Hufnagel and many more.

Derrick had several careers throughout his life. Most recently as a Registered Professional Land Surveyor, starting and operating his own successful land surveying firm.

Derrick loved to trade puns with family and friends, especially his daughter in law Suzanna and daughter Cassie. He was a deeply grateful man, thanking God even during his battle with cancer. He wanted everyone to understand just how much Christ had done for him on the cross. This is the legacy he bequeathed.
