Shawn Derrick Hayden, age 42, of Lone Oak, passed away Friday morning, the 10th, peacefully
while asleep, at his residence.
Derrick was born Nov. 22, 1977, in Columbus, Ohio, to the parentage of James and Eva Myers Hayden.
Derrick or "Coot" as was the name that attached itself to him since when his first niece began
to talk and was unable to pronounce "Derrick".....his new name became "Coot" and has continued
with the three nephews and even other members of the family.
Derrick graduated from Wills Point High School.
He worked during most of his working career as a commercial driver with several
companies making large deliveries.
His main hobby or pass-time was fishing. He loved to fish Lake Tawakoni,
or, the Fork or wherever he could bait a hook and fish.
Also, one way to identify Derrick, if you didn't know him, was if he was
carrying and drinking a Dr. Pepper!! That would be a for sure give away...
Derrick was a huge fan of the Dallas Cowboys...and, would not miss a
game shown on television. He was also a big fan of the Lone Oak Buffalos.
If he wasn't sitting in the bleachers watching the game, he could be found in his
car listening to it on the radio. But at any point during the game, Derrick
would be able to tell you the score.
Derrick was a Christian and attended church at Resurrection Morning Church
in Lone Oak.
He loved his family and enjoyed time spent with them.
Those left in this world to cherish his memories include:
Mother: Eva Hayden of Lone Oak
Sisters: Melissa Thomas and husband Russell of Rockwall; and,
Holly Box and husband Randy of Lone Oak
Grandmother: Nellie Myers of Kaufman
Niece: Makayla Stamps of Royse City
Nephews: Jarrod Stamps of Dallas;

Numerous other loving family and friends
