Owen Michael Derks

May 1, 2020


Owen Michael Derks, beloved son of Kelsey and Michael Derks was born sleeping on May 1, 2020 at Akron General Medical Center.

There is a special Angel in Heaven
that is part of us.
It is not where we wanted him to be
but where God wanted him to be.
He was here but just a moment
like a night time shooting star.
And though he is in Heaven
he isn't very far.
He touched the heart of many
like only an Angel can do.
So we send this special message
to the Heaven up above.
Please take care of our Angel
and send him all our love.

Besides his parents, Owen is survived by his sister, Camryn Kapper; grandparents, Paul (Kelly) Kapper and Michael (Genevieve) Derks; great-grandparents, John (Sandy) Stare and Richard Kapper; as well as many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.
