August 28, 1967 – October 14, 2019
With great sadness, we announce the passing of Darrell Bruce Gray on October 14th, 2019. Darrell is survived by his spouse of 15 years, Samantha; son, Jeremy; sister, Lori (Steve); father, Melvyn; uncle, Rob; aunts, Shari and Lois; and niece, Jayden. Predeceased by his mother, Carol on February 16th, 2018.
While Darrell came to the mid- island area at a young age, he always knew this was where he would call home. Darrell was an avid outdoors-man and was happiest when he was with his son Jeremy and close friends exploring every corner of the Island. Whether it was on a quad, a motorbike or a kayak, Darrell was at home in nature. He loved to spend his time hiking, fishing and camping. While Darrell was a man of few words, he was never at a loss for an amusing story around a campfire with friends.
He took great pride and satisfaction creating a beautiful home for himself and his family. Spending weekends on projects like a new Gazebo where everyone could gather to share a fire, music and some food. He meant so much to so many and will be greatly missed by all.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1 pm on Saturday, October 26th, 2019 at Yates Memorial Services, 1000 Allsbrook Rd., Parksville, BC. In lieu of flowers, please consider honouring Darrell’s memory with a donation to the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre.
