June 27, 1964 – Oshawa, Ontario
August 16, 2014 – Sicamous, BC
It is with much sadness and broken hearts that I announce the sudden and tragic passing of my beloved life partner Darryl Johnston on Saturday, August 16, 2014. He was taken suddenly in an unfortunate boating accident on the Shushwap Lakes.
Darryl attended school in the Oshawa area and also took studies at Durham College. He was an avid ski leader of the ski patrol, an enthusiastic motorcyclist and of most recent a knowledgeable and competent boater. His long and distinguished career in the IT industry was what he was most proud of, and he had made long and lasting friends and partners in that field.
Darryl will be missed and loved as he always stood for integrity and honor, with a fun attitude toward life and friends. Darryl is survived by his partner Colin Ward of 26 years, and his ever trusted new set of pets the border collies Gemma and Jax. Darryl was predeceased by his loving parents Florence and John Johnston of Oshawa.
Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Park Memorial, 5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Calgary, AB) on Monday, September 8, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
