Derek J. Mondor was born August 5, 1990 in Robbinsdale, MN to Kenneth and Jodie (Jerome) Mondor. In 1996, he moved with his family from Fridley, MN to Cavalier, ND. He attended school in Cavalier and later worked at Wieler Construction, Kelly Bean, with his brother at CM Construction Services, and then at Marvin Windows in Grafton, a job he took pride in.
He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, and he had an ability to make people laugh, especially his nieces and nephew, to whom he told many jokes.
