1939 – 2013
It is with profound sadness that the family of Darrel Huseby regrets to announce he passed away peacefully in Hospice House with his loving wife, Pauline, of 33 years by his side on Saturday, July 6th, 2013.
His long and courageous battle with cancer inspired many. In his life he managed to touch everyone that had the pleasure to know him.
Darrel was predeceased by his mother Martha Lillian, dad Ole, and sister Lucille. He is survived by his ever loving wife, Pauline; sons, Ryan (Grace), and Dave (Patti); granddaughters, Kayla and Kelsie; brother Dwayne (Bev); Auntie Ruth; numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
He was born and raised in Lacombe, AB. Between working at a sawmill camp in Tete Jaune and farming in Lacombe, he eventually made his way to Vernon and worked at Riverside Forest Products (formerly Steele, currently Tolko).
The funeral service will be held at Pleasant Valley Funeral Home on Friday, July 12, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the McMurty-Baerg Cancer Center or Hospice House.
We, Darrel’s family, wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Raupach, Dr. Hardy, et. al., Dr. Williamson, Dr. Mohamed, Dr. C. Bakala, and everyone else who helped care for him through the years.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Pleasant Valley Funeral Home. (Phone: 250-542-4333) Condolences may be offered at www.pleasantvalleyfh.com
