ABBOTT, Darrell

Darrell was one of those larger than life people. Everyone felt his presence in a room. Whether it be his deep voice or his belly laugh, you knew Darrell was there. He could be seen or heard telling stories and jokes, or pulling out his phone to brag about his family. He liked to share his opinion, and was always “coaching” in one form or another. He touched many people through his years of coaching, and playing hockey, and left an imprint on many lives. Sadly, we lost him suddenly on Sunday Jan 12th, 2020.

He loved his family, and was a super proud husband, father, and grandpa. He spent his days in cold rinks, at dance or cheer competitions, watching sporting events with the love of his life, running his grandkids to their activities, or hanging with the old boys. His presence will be greatly missed.

We invite you to share your stories about Darrell, and to celebrate his life with us on Friday Jan 24th from 4-7pm at Victoria Park Golf Club, 1096 Victoria Road South, Guelph. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to Jumpstart, an organization committed to giving kids aged 4-18 equal access to sports and physical activity.
