DeMar DeRozan mourns loss of father
The father of San Antonio Spurs star DeMar DeRozan, Frank DeRozan, has passed away.
DeRozan announced his father’s death on Instagram by sharing a touching tribute.
“Words won’t serve justice to what you meant to me. Never missed a game, a practice, a opportunity to show me what a great father was,” DeRozan said.
“You pushed me my whole life to be able to withstand the roughest of times. Never seen you complain nor fold. All I cared about was making you proud. Over the past 3 years I seen you display the ultimate measure of a man fighting to the end. Wish I could tell you thank you one last time. Rest well Big Dog! Love you Dad.”
DeRozan missed the team’s Jan. 10 game against the Timberwolves.
