Obituary for LaRome Derricott

On November 26, 2018 LaRome Arkee Derricott closed his eyes for the last time and walked into the sunset. He was born in Richmond, Virginia to Patrina L. Derricott and Rodney W. White. He is proceeded in death by his maternal grandparents, Gretter L. Holmes and Floyd Benjamin Derricott Sr. and his mentor and role model Richard (Pops) Fleming.

LaRome attended Henrico County Schools. As a young boy he was very free spirited and enjoyed writing poems ( which later turned to lyrics), playing basketball, playing video games, or simply chilling with friends. Music became his passion in his early high school years. He continued to pursue his musical dreams while becoming a father and working full-time.

Affectionately known as Romeo, Romie the homie, Big Rome, and Rome would hardly ever see him without a smile. His energy stayed positive even though life gave him many reasons to stress. We often joked that he was conceited; to which he always gave us his usual half laugh. He loved his children with everything in his heart and tried to show them daily a father's love. To say he will be truly missed by all is an understatement.To know Rome was to love Rome. He was easy to talk to and there was not anyone that he could meet that would not soon be a friend.

Rome leaves to cherish his memory his devoted mother, Patrina L. Derricott, his devoted grandfather James C. Holmes, one brother Marcus T. Derricott (Amanda), four children Kayden, Kalab, Khole, and Jayden Derricott. Two uncles one devoted Floyd Benjamin Derricott Jr. (Akua), and Lamonize Clarke (Ellen) , three aunts one devoted Natasha C. Derricott, Tryanne Clarke, and Tashell Waller, two nieces Evagaline and Marceline Derricott, a host of cousins, two devoted Benjamin and Tiavia Mickens, the mother of his three children Helena Foskey, a host of friends, four devoted Misterelle (Mista) Branch, James Gray, Kelvin (Kay) and Greg Gardner.

To the family and friends,
I am very sorry to here of the loss of your loved one.
Where can we receive comfort when we grieve? 2Corinthians 1:3,4 in the Bible says: \\" Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,  who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.\\" God comforts us by letting us know what happens to our loved ones when they die and gives us hope that they will be brought back to life. To see proof of this from your Bible ask any one of Jehovah\\'s Witnesses to show you.
Also you can see a short vedio \\"Is There Hope for the Dead?\\"
