I looked up to Darrel as a young pup, trying to learn as much as I could, about guns and sporting growing up. He was one of the central parts of this process, and I loved doing business with him, and talking about hunting and outdoors life. It feels like the end of an Era to me. We should hope such men come up later in history as he did - he was very special to me and many of my friends! May he Rest in Peace and God bless the Combs family!

A couple years ago grandpa had a surgery preventing him from keeping his beloved “hound dog” so we got the opportunity to take him in. After a little while “Buttercup 2” became a custom to living with us and he decided to get a cat. This was the day he got Detroit “Deetie” and they became best friends. You are truly missed by everyone. I love you so much grandpa. Don’t cause too much trouble in heaven 💛💛💛

David and Bonnie & Janice, We so loved having Darrel be so active at the Senior Center. He was a joy to be around and was so giving, always looking out for and helping others. His caring spirit was so evident. We will miss Darrel at lunch, activities and on our trips. I did post a couple of photos from Senior Center activities. He had fun and brought fun to us.

David & Bonnie and families - so sorry to hear about Darrel. You have my deepest sympathy. May God wrap his arms around all of you and give you comfort and peace. I always enjoyed talking with him when he would come in the tavern for a cold beer. Wish we could be together so I could give you a hug, Love you - Joyce

Darrel was always a true friend. He had a sincerity that stood for what is right and honest. He believed in the goodness of people and gave people the chance to show their true self before judging them. He was a good judge of character, which he had to be to stay in business and deal with the public.

Darrel had know-how! He could do things! He could see through the difficulty in a task and see a way to complete the job. He did not back down from hard work. He would put himself out to help others, something he did many times for me. He has always been a man of honor and someone who could always be trusted. Written by his life long friend David Wiebe.
