Darrald served honorably in the U.S. Army Signal Corps: August 1942 - February 1946. He had a long term career with Wm. H. McCoy Petroleum Fuels and Veit Construction Co. He was committed to always doing his BEST, whether driving truck to deliver fuel oil or operating heavy excavation equipment.

Darrald enjoyed socializing immensely with so many friends at North Ridge Senior Living and Care Center; nightly card games, weekly horseshoes, Friday night bingo and many daily activities were his "top priority." He attended weekly worship services in the Care Center and using his Boombox, he happily provided the prelude and postlude music from his CD collection. Often times, lovingly sharing his wife, Evalynn's violin recordings. He valued his friendship and fellowship with the men's shuffleboard group at Wooddale Church. He enjoyed chatting and welcomed the visits from Cross of Glory Baptist Church. He will always be remembered for his enduring strength and will for a full, long and good life.

The family would like to thank the Park Nicollet Hospice staff, clinicians and all the staff at North Ridge Care Center for all the care and support they provided to Darrald and his family.

My dad, what a strong guy. During his last 2 weeks, he was kept comfortable and peaceful, under the care of Park Nicollet Hospice and North Ridge Care Center staff. It was a time, of our "letting go". He is now reunited, with mom in heaven, healthy and pain free. Together, his family and friends will join to celebrate his life.
