On Saturday, April 6, 2019, Darryl died unexpectedly at age 52.
Left to survive Darryl are his loving wife, Geri, and children, Faydra and Michael; sister Bev; nephew Catlin; brother Terry (Chris); nieces, Brenda and Cathy; grandchildren, and one tiny great-grandchild.
Darryl loved the outdoors and Rubber Ducky Campground was our extended family for the last 15 years. He enjoyed working on golf carts and being the Mascot at special events. Many people called him "Metro" as he worked at Metro Propane, where he met and maintained friendships with customers and coworkers, especially you Ozzie (Darryl could always rely on you).
The family and I want to thank the paramedics, doctors and staff at St. Boniface Hospital. My heart goes out to all of you that were so affected by the suddenness of this loss. He was your friend, coworker, neighbour, father figure and so much more. We would like to thank everyone for all their support. Our lives move on without him, but with enough love and memories to carry us through. He will remain forever in our hearts.
A memorial service will be held at a future date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to D'Arcy's ARC, 730B Century Street, Winnipeg Manitoba R3H 0M1.

  • We are very sad to hear about Darryl's sudden passing. He was a really great guy. Always helpful and loved getting involved with people. I will always see him with his shy kind of smile. Our most warmest and most comforting thoughts go out to you Geri and the rest of the family. He will be missed and never forgotten.

  • I bought propane from Darryl for 13 years but lately had not seen him for about a year as I move to a different position and our company hired another driver. Then saw him again just before he went for surgery. We used to have so many laughs about any topic while we waited for my tanks to fill. This last visit he spoke lovingly about his family and wife in particular. Little did we suspect it would be the last time we would meet. I just found out yesterday when I went back to fill up again. My heartfelt condolences go out to his wife and kids and other family and friends. I will miss him. - Posted by: Mark Van Schepdael (Friend) on: Apr 26, 2019

  • We had the pleasure of meeting Darryl last year when we purchased our golf cart from him. He was so knowledgeable and gave us some great advice. After that he would often stop in at our site to say hello - we always enjoyed visiting with him. He will be sadly missed. To the family we offer our deepest condolences. Losing a loved one is always so hard, but when it is unexpected it is that much harder, especially when it is someone in the prime of his life. - Posted by: Steve & Donna Friesen (Rubber Ducky Friend) on: Apr 25, 2019

  • I will always have fond memories of Darryl, teasing him and vice versa. Condolences to Geri and all the family and friends of Darryl. RIP old chum! - Posted by: Weldon Rinn (worked together at Patal Vocational School) on: Apr 20, 2019

  • I’m still in shock about this. My condolences go out to everyone who knew Darryl. He made an impact on almost every person he met. I had just seen him over a week ago, feeling great and excited to come to my wedding social and the actual wedding. He will now be there in spirit. Him and my dad were best friends since they were 12. My heart breaks for my dad as well, as he lost a good friend. RIP Darryl 💕 - Posted by: Melissa (Daughter to Gary who grew up with Darryl) on: Apr 13, 2019
