Remembering Darryl
Darryl after landing - 2010

We should all be so lucky in life to have met a few select individuals who make such a positive impression that they stay in our minds forever. On August 13th, one such individual died from an off dropzone landing; putting into perspective just how integral he was in the fabric of our little Maritime community.

Darryl Deagle loved pushing the limits in life and above all else loved his wife and 9 month old daughter. His family meant everything to him and he showed off his daughter at every opportunity around the DZ. Deagle's humour was infectious, putting a smile on anyone's face regardless of how bad a day they were having.

While our small group of skydivers loses an amazing person, his family loses a Son, a loving husband and father.

Darryl, we miss you very much.

Scholarship fund for Sophia

Those who had the chance to see Darryl with his daughter Sophia, would know without hesitation how much he loved her, would want her to find her place in life and like any father, to succeed in anything she puts her heart to.

Friends of Darryl wanted to do what we could to help his 10 month old daughter for when she is old enough to go to college/University. We wanted her to know that her father was truly loved and admired by all and helping her was a way to thank him for his contributions in our lives.

Please feel free to contribute to Sophia's future through a donation to the fund.

Moneys collected over the upcoming weeks will be put in an investment vehicle like a RESP so that Sophia will have access to it when she starts her studies.

Certainly one of a kind
Darryl and JD Turner at Targa 2010

Darryl was the kind of person that had many interests, from gadgets fueling his obsession with technology, cameras offering an outlet to capture a moment, a love for fast vehicles with participation in events like TARGA in Newfoundland or his website that he administrated.

At 34 years old, he has experienced and lived more than most could in a 1000 years, no one would doubt his love for life or appetite for new experiences.

Thanks again Deagle for the awesome memories!
