We announce the sudden passing of Darrell at his home on Sunday, April 11, 2021 after a long battle with pulmonary fibrosis.

Beloved son of the late Ruth and Al DesRoche. Dear brother of Kim Renton (Todd) and Kelly Chayka (Steve). Uncle of Melissa, Victoria, Lucas and Jaden.

Darrell was a great friend to all that knew him. He loved riding his Harley, driving his truck and visiting his friends and family. Darrell was an amazing guy with a kind soul, his friends loved him, he was always there for anyone who needed him. Darrell’s love, loyalty and kindness will be greatly missed and will leave a big void in our hearts. Take a deep breath our brother and enjoy!

Cremation has taken place, and a private service will be held. Due to covid, a celebration of life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Darrell’s memory may be made to the Lung Association.

Darrell was so kind and helpful in my time of need when my father passed away. Darrell assisted me with the transportation of my fathers household goods from Alberta to Ontario. I will be eternally grateful for all of Darrell's kind support. R.I.P my friend. You will be missed .

His small stature hid a big heart. Always smiling first thing in the morning at work. He could and would drive anything.
