KNOCK, Darcy Dale

November 4, 1978 – January 22, 2019

Darcy Knock, beloved husband, father, son and brother, passed away peacefully with his family at his side on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at the age of 40 years.

He was born to Dan and Darla Knock (nee Rietze) on November 4th, 1978 in Calgary, Alberta. Darcy grew up in Airdrie, AB and graduated from George McDougall High School. He later set roots in Innisfail, AB where he started his career in oil and gas.

Darcy married Amanda (nee Spotswood) on August 21st, 2004 and was blessed with three beautiful children, Kaylin Gracie, Logan Hunter and Zayne Daniel, and man’s best friend Chomper.

Darcy worked hard for what he accomplished. He established his own company Critical Inc. in 2006 and not long after set up his home away from home, in Hardisty AB, where he spent the past eight years building his company and contracting for Gibsons Energy.

Darcy was a true outdoorsman, hunting, fishing, skidooing, camping, you name it. He loved to teach people his outdoor skills and everything he knew. Family, friends or strangers, he’d help anyone. Darcy was a fun loving, hardworking, selfless man with a finely tuned, well timed knack for sarcasm. He always put his whole heart into helping his family and friends.

He will be greatly missed by all of the lives he touched.

Darcy is survived by his wife Amanda; his children Kaylin, Logan and Zayne; his parents Dan and Darla Knock; his sisters Pam (Dustin) and Kelsey (Alfie); his grandmas Dorothy Rietze and Marilyn Knock; his nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and many close friends. Darcy was predeceased by his grandpas Fred Knock and Al Rietze.

Funeral Services will be held at Town and Country Center (275 Jensen Dr NE, Airdrie AB) on Thursday, January 31, 2019 at 2:00 P.M. with reception to follow . Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the trust fund that has been set up by Darcy’s sister, Pam Tremblay in trust for Kaylin, Logan and Zayne at any ATB Branch.

In living memory of Darcy Knock, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Airdrie, 300 TOWERLANE DRIVE, AIRDRIE, AB. Telephone: 403-948-1100.

  2. I worked with Darcy during construction of Hardisty Truck terminal where he was the site consultant for the job. I was working for a Survey company. I can say that he was one of the best people I worked with. Friendly yet professional at the job. Helped us out in any way he can. I cannot believe he passed away at such a young age. My condolences and prayers are with his family and pray for a better future for his wife and kids.
    RIP Darcy Knock

  8. I never got the pleasure of meeting Darcy but being close to Pam heard lots of stories. I remember Pam and I sitting in BC when a bug straight out of Jurassic Park bit Pam, we searched so hard trying to figure out what it was and a text to Darcy had the answer within seconds. My heart aches for you guys! So much love and respect for you all!
