JOYNT: Darrell passed away suddenly at home on Thursday, February 10, 2022. He was predeceased by his father Norris in 2018, and is survived by his mother Georgina, sister Kim, brothers Sheldon and George and several nieces, grand-nieces and grand-nephews. Darrell was born on June 9 and attended school in Griswold, Oak Lake and Virden. For many years now, he told anyone who asked that he was 29 years old. He spent several years in Winnipeg before moving to Calgary, where his love of people and all things musical made him a well-known neighbourhood figure. The annual stampede breakfast at "Rock Central" was a Victoria Park institution for 12 years. Darrell returned to Brandon in 2006 and became a familiar face around town, working at the Keg, CanadInn and Humpty's, and was a regular at local auctions and thrift stores. Darrell was an outgoing individual who had a natural curiosity about many things. He loved to take things apart to see how they worked and to challenge people to see how they thought. Viewing will be held at Memories Chapel, 330 – 18th Street North, Brandon on Wednesday, February 23, 2022 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held at Memories Chapel on Friday, February 25, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. In compliance with Public Health Orders, proof of full immunization will be required.

Condolences & Memories (9 entries)

  • Darrell was a wonderful gentle man. Always a smile on his face as he walked through the door and for every person he greeted. He had an amazing charisma with customers and a great rapport with his colleagues. Darrell was frequently asked for as a server and received many WOW notation’s throughout his career as a serve with the Keg . He will be remembered fondly and truly missed.

  • I met Darrell when he and I both worked at Simplot in Brandon. Working there didn't agree with either of us and I know we both later found our passions. I have many great memories of Darrell. We were roommates in Brandon when he owned the mobile home, I learned that a Karmann Ghia was a car, I recall he had a beautiful white wolfhound dog named Raja, she continued to get loose and she was so incredibly fast and almost impossible to catch. Darrell later purchased a house and installed the most interesting round window in the front. He had a passion for all things different. I later moved from Brandon and crossed paths with Darrell a few times. I last saw Darrell in Calgary. I was passing through and a friend had made a reservation at a restaurant. We sat down at the table and I suddenly heard a familiar voice say Hi my name is Darrell and I'll be your server. We were both shocked but thrilled to see one another again. My Condolences to Darrell's family and friends. Darrell I am thankful for the laughs and the friendship and appreciate the time we spent together. You are very unique and obviously touched many lives. - Posted by: Dave Hare (Friend) on: Feb 26, 2022

  • Darrell could have written the handbook for waitering in fine dining at The Keg. A favourite of mine and all my gal pals over the years, he was friendly with a quick wit, attentive to detail and made us feel special. He'll be missed. Forever 29, Darrell. - Posted by: Bev (customer ) on: Feb 26, 2022

  • We always asked for Darrell when we dined at the Keg. It won't be the same without his personable self making us welcome. It was like catching up with an old friend. He will be missed. Our sincere condolences to his loved ones. - Posted by: Kozak family (Customer/friend) on: Feb 25, 2022

  • Condolences to Darrell's family and close friends. He and I were great pals when he lived in Calgary. In my life I have only met a couple people who were always happy, never complained, never had a bad thing to say and were always smiling and laughing. D was one of them. He was such a bright light to me and many others. He was always happy to have you at his house, once you made your way through 500 house plants. Darrell taught me that there are things in life not to worry about and that just being yourself was actually cool. I have too many memories to post here, but whether it was a road trip in his doorless Jeep to Banff in the fall, drinking Dom from the bottle at Buon Giorno (apparently because you only drink good stuff from the bottle) or just the two of playing guitar and drinking some Old Stock, Darrell always had, and always will have a special place in my heart, and I'm sure in the hearts of others. Save me a cold one buddy!! WE WANT MORE! - Posted by: Shaun (Friends ) on: Feb 23, 2022

  • Darrell and I "served" together at The Keg for many a year. He was insightful, intelligent and caring. Armed with a quick laugh and a penchant for Mischief he brought the room up wherever he was found. My thoughts turn to his Family. - Posted by: Trent Bartley (Friend) on: Feb 23, 2022

  • Darrell was a childhood friend. We spent a lot of time together as teenagers. He always made me and everyone else happy who had the privilege of spending time with him. My heart is with the family is this very difficult time. Read in peace my friend. ❤️ - Posted by: Heather Day (Friend ) on: Feb 22, 2022

  • Over the last 2 years I had the wonderful opportunity to spend many days working with Darrell. Shifts we were working together were some of my favorite and most memorable ones. He always came to work with his usual charm and thirst for coffee. I would join him for our casual pre shift cigarette and enjoy our warm coffee before heading out and greeting our many guests. Many of who would specifically request Darrell. He always had a special connection with people and everybody came back to see him. I will forever be grateful for the moments I got to spend and enjoy being in his company. May he forever rest easy and hopefully we meet again. - Posted by: Brad Brown (Coworker ) on: Feb 18, 2022
