FRANCIS, Darrel Edwin
December 25, 1954 – August 6, 2018
It is with great sadness that the family of Darrel Francis announce his passing at RUH on Monday, August 6, 2018. He was predeceased by his father Edwin Francis and nephew Levi Hiebert. He is survived by his mother Elizabeth, brother Wayne, sister Laurie (Dale) Ziolkowski, sister Lynn (Daryl) Hiebert, as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and extended family members. Darrel was born in North Battleford, SK and grew up there and in Saskatoon. Darrel’s primary employment was as a heavy equipment operator, but his passion was farming. He accomplished his dream and was able to purchase and farm his own land near Maymont, SK. Darrel presented with a “gruff” exterior but was a genuine “softy” on the inside, especially with children and animals. The family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the staff of unit 6100 at RUH, along with all the other health care professionals who provided their services, comfort and support to Darrel and his family during this difficult time. As per Darrel’s request there will be no funeral service. Those wishing to share in a Celebration of Life are invited to attend a Come and Go Tea on Saturday, August 18, 2018 between 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. at his mother’s home. Cremation arrangements in care of Mourning Glory Funeral Services (306) 978-5200.
