Derek McIntosh, 41

Derek Andrew McIntosh passed away unexpectedly in the early morning hours on Jan. 4, 2022, due to complications from blood clots sending him into cardiac arrest after receiving his COVID-19 vaccine.

Derek was born in Robbinsdale, MN, to parents Jeff and Sue McIntosh. He grew up and went to school in Brooklyn Park and graduated from Park Center High School in 1998.

He spent two and a half years at St. Cloud State University until realizing all college was is a bunch of professors imposing their liberal and Godless views on the young minds of our nation.

Derek spent many years in the hospitality industry, and during that time he welcomed his son, Calvin, into the world.

Alongside his dad, Jeff, Derek spent the last half of his working life working in non-destructive testing inspection at Kurt Manufacturing.

Derek was quick with a joke and had a very keen and witty sense of humor. His goal was to spread love and light with his often times harsh words.

During the last weeks of his life, however, the world turned dark with heavy-handed vaccine mandates. The governments were determined to strip away his right to consult his wisdom and enjoy his freedom. He had been vehemently opposed to taking the vaccine, so thank you Joe Biden, for bringing on a premature death of a life not fully lived.

He is preceded in death by both sets of grandparents, and his Aunt Patti Jo. He is survived by his parents, Jeff and Sue McIntosh of Nisswa, MN; his son Calvin McIntosh, of Monticello, MN; his sister Kirstin McIntosh of Pequot Lakes MN; and his two nieces Aubree and Josie Knutson along with many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Visitation to be held from 1 to 3 p.m. With celebration of Derek's life at 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022 at Peterson-Grimsmo Funeral Chapel, 250 E. Broadway, Monticello, MN.
