November 24, 1962 to October 22, 2015
It is with great sadness that Darrel’s family announces his passing.
Darrel will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by his dad and mom; Brian and Dorothy Orr, sister Debbie (Kim), brother Graham (Pat), nieces and nephews; Kelsey, Kara, Nathan, Carolyn and Andrew, extended family and many friends.
He will be forever in the heart of his beloved girlfriend Pat (her children Alexa and Tyson). Darrel and Pat shared a love of kayaking, hiking and togetherness. Darrel had a profound love of family and a great appreciation of nature instilled in him from a childhood full of activities and adventures in the outdoors. He had countless friends throughout his life who he cherished immensely.
Darrel’s hard work and the pride he took in everything he did was evident in his many accomplishments. He was a well respected building contractor with his own business and volunteered as President of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association – Victoria. His most recent years were spent at Shawnigan Lake, a place he loved to call home.
A celebration of Darrel’s life will be held at 1:00pm, November 8, 2015 at Glen Meadows Golf & Country Club, 1050 McTavish Rd, Sidney.
