    Unhappy Derek Anthony!

    We are coming up on the sixth anniversary of Derek's passing on 10 December 2013, at the age of 32. I still miss Derek. I felt bad about what he went through, both the online hate that he didn't know how to handle, & the health issues that brought him down before his time. I feel sure that those who cared for him the most think about him every day.

    He left us at too young of an age. Sad loss. Prayers to his friends and family.

    This, srs. I believe he was a good guy at heart, even though he appeared to be a bit cocky at times

    If memory serves me correct wasn't he super passionate about tattoo's prior to his passing?

    Rip. He took it too fast. If he eased up & hit the break, no doubt he'd be here, but who knows. Respect your body ppl, unless UL be blowing a head gasket, then the biggest piece aka motor!!!

    Anthony was Derek's middle name. His last name was Springer.

    He competed in the NPC 2002 Teen Collegiate show. He placed 3rd (out of ten) in the heavyweight class.

    Met him a couple times at World Gym, West Babylon. I think he was still with GAT at the time. Talked a bit and he seemed down to earth then.
