Daryl Murray Canning

May 25, 1963 – June 20, 2020

Born in Deloraine, Manitoba to Glen and Mary Canning (nee Reeve)

When Daryl was about 1 ½ years old his parents loaded up the ol’ rambler and moved to BC and never looked back. Daryl joined the Canadian Forces at the age of 18 and after 33 plus years of service retired from the RCN in 2016. Daryl will be fondly remembered for his big smile, sarcastic sense of humour and growing passion for gardening, cooking and nature walks.

Daryl is survived by his mother Mary, wife Shelley, brother Dwayne (Dayna), sister Donica (Greg); children Alysha (Oz), Ashley (Darren), Andrew (Cassandra), Jeff (Shelby), Becca (Liv); and granddaughter Leyla Faye.

I worked with Daryl on and off since 2002 until my posting to Ottawa in 2013 - unfortunately, with the exception of a brief phone call after learning of his condition, we never did see each other and were only able to have the occasional glimpse into each others lives through social media. I'm truly at a loss for words for the family except to say that while I can't remove the weight that comes with grief, I can share and hopefully ease it in someway. I regret not 'seeing' more of him and his family, he always spoke fondly of them. I will miss my friend.

Sailed for a few years with Daryl. Always thought he was a great guy, good shipmate, and a great friend. I was shocked to hear this. He will be sadly missed

My deepest condolences and prayers to Daryl's family. My fondest memory with DC was going to Nationals for Softball with CFS Aldergrove. Daryl, I considered you a great teammate, shipmate but most of all a great friend. You will be terrible missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing you...

I got the watch , Buddy.

My deepest condolences to the family. Daryl was an amazing colleague, supervisor and fine sailor. I’m very saddened by this news but will forever keep wonderful memories of him and how funny he was. I had the pleasure to have Daryl as my supervisor on-board HMCS Protecteur as well as my QL5A instructor. I have learned so much from him on how to become a naval communicator and I am forever grateful. Daryl, you will be dearly missed but never forgotten.....I feel blessed to have known you and I hope you find peace.

Daryl was a great shipmate and will be missed by all those he served with. He had a fun sense of humour and was a steady hand that could be counted upon no matter what the situation. A real stand up sailor. My sincere condolences to his family.

I cannot express with any true affect the sense of loss from Daryl's passing.

I was privileged to sail and work with Daryl on five separate postings during my career.

The epitome of a ship mate Daryl was always a steady hand on the job and a great mate for a run ashore.

God speed to you my friend, far too soon!
We will tip a few together when I get to other side.

I am at a loss for words and it took me some time just to to write this. I was just trying to reach out to him last month. I've spent so much time with Daryl during those long mids on the ships. I've known Daryl most of my career. He did have a sarcastic view on alot of points that made us all laugh. I remember one phrase he used often to answer stupid questions "2 to 30 megs". We had some great laughs and foreign port visits pictured here with me and Peter Beochler on Daryl's Birthday in Souda Bay, Greece. He always spoke so highly of Shelly and his family. My thoughts are with you all. He was a great shipmate and will be missed but never forgotten, RIP Brother.

An amazing Naval Communicator, an amazing line mate in Hockey when we won small base for CFS Aldergrove together, an amazing instructor for so many young communicators when we were together at CFFS(E). And most importantly an amazing friend. To all the family Daryl leaves behind, my deepest sympathies. Your Dad, Son, Husband, and Brother was an incredible man who touched so many with his wit, his kindness, and his brotherly love. Till we meet again my brother. Fair winds and following seas. We've got the watch.

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.
