Derrick Chatfield Obituary

Derrick Anthony Chatfield, fondly nicknamed "Kool-Aid," left this world on January 18, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of laughter, love, and an unmistakable style. Kool-Aid was born to Terry D. Chatfield and Stephanie A. Wooten (Ezekiel). Derrick brought joy to the lives of many with his infectious personality.

Derrick was educated in the IPS system. Derrick proudly graduated from Arlington High School. He undoubtedly left an indelible mark with his larger-than-life presence. Derrick confessed his hope in Christ at an early age. Has was a member of Charity Missionary Baptist Church until his passing. Throughout his career, he dedicated himself to ensuring the safety of others, working security at various venues. A true protector, Derrick extended his caring nature to everyone he held dear.

Known for his impeccable style, Derrick was a connoisseur of kicks, with a special fondness for Jordans. His love for motorcycles and his club family reflected his adventurous spirit and sense of camaraderie. Derrick was a man of humor and heart, possessing a bubbly personality that drew people in.

A natural storyteller, Derrick loved to share jokes and make people laugh. His circle knew no strangers-everyone was treated like family. He was a devoted friend, always ready to step up or step in to help those in need. Derrick actively participated in nonviolent initiatives to enhance community safety, including the most recent “Cease Fire Initiative”.

Derrick is preceded in death by his loving father; Terry Chatfield, stepmother; Tonia Chatfield, and four grandparents. He leaves behind a tapestry of cherished memories, survived by eight siblings; Tiffany Gaines, Terri Killen (Cameron), Markisha Norman (Kendel), Tasha Wesley, Shaun Dunlap, Jeffery Woods, Sherman Thompson, and Shayne Thompson.

Derrick's legacy extends to his three children; JaVon Moore, D'Shawn Freeman, and Lauryn Gray, who will carry the torch of his love and spirit. He is also survived by aunts, uncles, and a multitude of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
