March 13, 1954-March 14, 2015

Darrel was born in Grande Prairie, Alberta and has been a long time resident of Telkwa, B.C.  He worked in logging and home construction. Darrel really enjoyed family events with kids and music, as well as a good game of cards.

He is predeceased by his parents Kenneth and Norma Steinke, his brothers in-law Gary Kendall and Dale Davies and his nephew Derek Hawkins.

He will be greatly missed by his brothers Jim (Elaine), Larry (Eileen), Bill, Darcy (Carlyn) and by his sisters Donna, Naomi (Al), Sharon, Myrna (Bob) and Lynnel. His many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews will also miss their Uncle Darrel. He enjoyed them so much and was so proud of them.

The family would like to express their gratitude to Dr. Strauss and the nursing, pharmacy, dietary and housekeeping staff at Bulkley Valley Hospital. Their care for Darrel and their support for his family was exceptional during his illness.

Darrel was laid to rest in the Telkwa Cemetery, and a gathering for friends and family was held in Smithers following the service.
