Although we did not see each other often over the years I have fond memories of time spent with Darryl as a very young man as well as the few times we saw each other as adults. Time puts distance between us but family is always family. Take care of each other.

    I was the one who hired Darryl on April 1st, 2002. I worked with him for five years before moving back East in 2007. He was a great employee. I could always count on him and he was well liked by all the Shell employees. I was visiting my daughter in Airdrie when I stopped for gas in Red Deer at the Shell station on the Gasoline Alley North only to find out that Darryl had passed away in January. My wife and I were both shocked having both known him on and off the job. He was so proud of his daughter…the love of his life. We will always keep Darryl and his family in our prayers. I retired from BLJC in 2011. Bob and Margie.
