NEW YORK – At approximately 10:05 pm local time, one of our own was officially taken home to be with Allah. Our original editor at Large Derick Goff, 21, passed away Sunday night after complications from colorectal failure.
Goff had secretly been battling problems with his colon. Earlier this year, substantial levels of blood gathered in the colon area — Goff died almost the exact same way he discovered he had colon problems.
Goff, 21, was never married and is survived by a number of siblings. It is unknown if parents were present in his life as he kept a staunchly secret life outside of his work related projects.
