I am posting today with sadness, Deron Drumm has passed away. Deron was the founder and executive director of Toivo, a passionate advocate, and a kind and loving person.
I met Deron while I was becoming a Recovery Support Specialist when he came to our class to speak to us. I was blown away by how warm and empathetic his spirit was, and by how easily he touched each person in the room with what seemed to be no effort. I am deeply saddened that his spirit has left our earth, and my heart goes out to the many people who loved and looked up to him.
To my friends at Advocacy Unlimited, Toivo, and Join Rise Be- my love goes out to you in this time. I am so deeply sorry for your loss.
As an agency, we at TurningPointCT.org stand by your side and as we mourn the loss of an remarkable spirit.
Rest in Peace, Deron
