was a railroad engineer, and he had several younger siblings. He became friends with Hugh M. Tiner (the second president
of George Pepperdine College) while attending classes at Abilene Christian College. After receiving his B.A. degree from
Abilene Christian College, he pursued an M.A. at Baylor University while also preaching at local churches. He briefly had
a job in London,Texas, for the 1931 to 1932 school year, as a high school administrator and teacher, but was fired from administrative
work after the first year for poor performance. The next school year, he taught Spanish and history, and coached all sports
at the school in Eden, Texas. Soon after, he met and married his wife, Julia Mozelle. The Derricks had two children (Jacquelyn
and Foy) by 1935, when they were recommended to move to Riverside, California by Hugh Tiner.
