Derek Schroeder - September 22, 2013


Derek Glen Schroeder, 32 years of age of Wilcox died Sept. 22, 2013, at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Lincoln.
He was born Nov. 6, 1980, in Kearney to Larry and Rhonda (Moda) Schroeder.
He was baptized on Jan. 25, 1981, at First United Methodist Church in Kearney.
He was confirmed on June 4, 1995, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Hildreth.
Derek graduated in 1999 from Wilcox Public School and continued his education at SCC at Beatrice until he was hospitalized in 2002.
Derek had endured a tragedy that would make many people mean and bitter towards the world. Derek was nothing of the kind. He was strong and kind regardless of the constant reminder of his tragic accident. Derek overcame obstacles that many of us wouldn’t have the strength to approach.
