Daniel “Danny” Joseph DeRouen, 75, of Columbus, GA died at Columbus, Northside Hospital, Columbus, GA on Saturday, September 11, 2021.
A Service of Remembrance will be held at a later date according to Vance Brooks Funeral Home, Phenix City, AL.
Mr. DeRouen was born May 30, 1946 in Indio, CA son of the late Alcee Pierre DeRouen and Georgia Jesson DeRouen. He was the owner of Danny’s Pest Control for many years in his home state of California before resettling in the Columbus, GA area. Danny enjoyed buying and selling “things” and he loved a good auction. He even had a brief appearance on the show, American Pickers. His true passion however was his love of vintage cars. Something he never tired of talking about or admiring. We will always remember him for his drive and small business savvy, but most of all his love of family. They above everything else were his top priority.
Survivors include his wife of 46 years, Karen Hogan DeRouen, Columbus, GA; a daughter, Alison Varnadore (Michael) and a son, Josh DeRouen (Misty); two brothers, Perry DeRouen (Kathy) and Paul DeRouen (Susie); three special grandsons, Jonathan, Dalton and Jacob DeRouen; mother-in-law, Barbara Hogan, sister-in-law, Kimberley Hogan and longtime friend, Duane Foster; several nieces, nephews and friends.
