June 16, 1967 – August 27, 2009
Darryl Powderface, was suddenly called home by our Creator on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at the age of 42 years.
Darryl was born in Calgary, AB. He received his education in Morley. He was a hard worker, a handy man that would help anyone that needed his help and never turned down a job that was asked of him. He had a hand shake and a smile for everyone he met and made sure he or she left smiling. In his younger days he enjoyed many sport activities such as hockey, skiing, volley ball and baseball. He even tried his hand at horse racing as a jockey. His dream to be a cowboy led him to the JC Trujillo Bareback Riding clinic in Twin Falls, ID in the early 1980’s. His passion was his Stoney Traditional way of life, hunting, fishing, round dance. Darryl was part of the Chinki Lake Singers.
