BINT, Darryl Joseph

September 25, 1948 – Saskatoon, SK

March 24, 2022 – Cochrane, AB

It is with great sadness Darryl’s family announces his passing at Foothills Hospital in Calgary, Alberta. Darryl was born to Joseph and Agnes Bint. He grew up, was educated, and lived in Saskatoon until 2001 when Darryl moved his family and his business to Cochrane, AB.

Family was everything to Darryl. He was devoted to his sons, grandkids, and his wife Linda. He loved taking Nigel and Davis fishing and laughing and playing with Hanna and Maddy. He loved helping his sons with renovations to their homes and just hanging out with them.

Darryl loved sitting around the kitchen table having coffee, sharing stories about hunting, fishing, golfing, curling, or whatever new bird he spotted on his bird feeders with his little dog Joey on his lap.

He had such a love for nature.

His sense of humour was such an endearing and fun part of his character. He could get a chuckle out of anyone.

Darryl loved his many trips to various locations in Mexico.

Darryl will be dearly missed by his wife, Linda; sons, Cory Zoller (Nicki Knight), Code Bint (dear Meghan); precious grandkids, Nigel and Davis Zoller, Hanna and Madelyn Bint; brother-in-law, Paul (Rena) Gaulin; nieces, Lauri Rose Friesen, Amelia Gaulin, Laura Evanowich; nephews, Kirk Rose, Walker and Steven Bint; and many cousins; and so many special friends, Karen, Perry, Duane, Tony, Kelly, Joe, Curtis, Janice, Wendi, Claude, and Linda.

Darryl was predeceased by his mom and dad; brother, Mervin; son, Dean Zoller; sister-in-law, Gloria Rose; and in-laws, Mary and Leo Gaulin.

Darryl’s remaining sibling left to mourn is Gloria Teed of Saskatoon.

Darryl’s family would like to express appreciation for his care in unit 47 at Foothills Hospital.

A Celebration of Darryl’s Life will be held at a later date. Memorial donations would be appreciated by Darryl to go to the Cochrane Humane Society www.cochranehumane.ca

    To Linda and family, my condolences on this sad occasion. Darryl, we will hoist a beer in your honour as a fellow curler and golfer. We had a good time curling with the cowboys in Cochrane , discussing that curling shot , both good ones and the other ones. Rest in peace, Darryl.

    So sorry to hear about Darryl’s passing. We wish you the best in this difficult time. Many many good memories of many hours spent in hockey rinks in many towns and city’s. Miss those times. We had a few pops and many laughs.

    Dear Linda, Gloria and Families, very sad to hear this news about Darryl.

    Had not seen Darryl for many years, but spent a lot of time with him in the 50s when we were just kids. Fishing, mostly! Being first cousins with a love of the bush and water meant we had some good common ground.

    Wish you a happy celebration of his life.

    Gordie and Tash Williams

    Dear Linda: I just remember him giving you curling tips during our sterling games, then again on our regular games. He was a very nice man and it was a pleasure to know him — take care Linda.
