KLASSEN, Darryl David

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Darryl Klassen. Darryl is lovingly remembered by his mother Elsie Klassen, brothers Randy (Kelly) and Gary (Linda) Klassen, and son Michael Armstrong. Darryl is also survived by his nieces and nephews: Jason Copeland and Karis, Derrick (Wendy), Kristin, Kevin and Kyle Klassen, as well as a large circle of other relatives and friends.

    Elsie and family, it is will a fallen heart that I do express my deepest regrets with the loss of your dear son. I know that your family has endured this great pain several times and I pray that our Lord gives you all the strength to endure once again. We are told that our God does not burden us any greater than what we can handle but once again you are tested. During my time in Calgary I grew to respect Darryl’s tenacity and capability, he did not shy away from the task at hand. Much too early another soul has been snatched away. Rest in peace my friend, in our Lords comfort. Jesse Mlynarski, Red Deer

    Elsie, Randy, Kelly, Karis and Kristen,

    On behalf of our family, please accept our heartfelt condolences on the loss of your son, brother, brother-in-law and uncle. Although we did not know Darryl as well as we knew Scott, we join the rest of the community in shock over this loss only weeks after the loss of Scott and we mourn with you for this loss. We pray that you will find strength, encouragement and wisdom from your faith and the Foothills Mennonite Church community.

    John, Iris, Johan, Heywood, Sammy and Wesley
