In Loving Memory

Conway, Derek K.

September 4, 1987 - May 23, 2024

Derek Keith Conway, 36, died unexpectedly May 23rd, 2024, in St. Louis, MO.

Mr. Conway was born September 4th, 1987, in Saint Louis, Missouri, to Charles and Donna Conway. Derek lived an adventurous, exciting life as an unique jokester sharing laughs and good times with many of his family and friends.

During his physical time on earth, he enjoyed restoring vintage muscle cars, playing guitar, being in nature for hiking, floating, and camping, and was an avid gun collector.

He worked many years as a machinist but also took on many odd jobs like working the campgrounds, transporting cow blood, and plowing and cleaning parking lots. He loved jam sessions with his guitar, making funny films, and had his own YouTube channel. He loved to be outdoors with nature as this is where he spent the best times of his life.

Derek is survived by his mother Donna Conway (nee Bellinger), two sisters Misty Conway, Brittany (Joseph) Webb, nephews Christopher Edwards Jr., Keegan Walther, Owen Webb, and niece March Conway. He is a dear nephew, great nephew, cousin, and friend to many.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests monetary donations to help cover funeral costs paid directly to the Kutis funeral home. The visitation will be held at Kutis City Chapel, 2906 Gravois, on Saturday, June 1st, 2-6:00 PM.

  1. Man I luv u and miss u bud u were a light in a dark place loved your energy and I love how you were with my kids and family u were a stand up guy rest up lil bro

  2. Dearlick, Will miss you greatly and everything about you…your jokes, your smile, your hug, your knowledge on cars , movie productions, singing, guitar playing, your appetite, you even liked my dry Thanksgiving turkey, helping others and so many other talents I would run out of room if I listed them all. It’s so sad one of the things you did so well, helping others, led to the end of our time with you. Love you and will never forget you.

  3. I am so sorry for the family loss. I wish I had known him better. Though I didn’t know you; I can see how special you were to many

  4. I am so heart broken by this news. So many families were affected and the pain is felt in many ways. I’m at a loss of words because simply this cannot help. Just know I can try to be a support. Until we meet again.
