He is survived by his loving wife of nearly 50 years, Lillie Anne Andrews; an adoring daughter, Heather Graves, and her husband, Tom; granddaughter, Chloe Graves (a.k.a. little buddy); and mother-in-love, Violet Hacker.
Whether in an orphanage while on deployment or in the infant room on Sunday morning, Derryl’s ministry had always been loving children, most recently at Shiloh Church Orange Park (previously Ridgewood).
