ETTEL, Darin Gordon

ETTEL, Darin Gordon

July 1, 1971 - October 25, 2021

Darin passed away suddenly, due to a fatal car accident on October 25, 2021, at the age of 50.

A healthy baby boy, Darin was born in Williams Lake, BC to parents Gordon and Lillian Ettel. He was brother to Kellie Ettel-Quinnell, and became uncle to Jessica.

The Ettel family moved to Kelowna, BC in 1973, where Darin attended Belgo Elementary School, then went on to graduate from Rutland Senior in 1989. Darin had a bright future ahead of him and was loved by so many whose lives he touched.

He was always the life of the party and had that contagious laugh that could light up a whole room.

Darin, you have forever touched our hearts, and we will cherish the beautiful memories we have of you, always.

In memory of Darin's kind and giving nature, we ask that his friends and loved ones honour his random acts of kindness and pay it forward by being kind.

Until we meet again, fly high, beautiful baby boy.

The service is by invitation only, and not open to the public. A recording of the service held will be available to view on Monday, November 22, 2021.

    I've known Darin since 1979. We went to Belgo Elementary and Hollywood Road Junior and Rutland Senior Secondary together. He was a great guy and quite a character. Lost touch with each other over the years except for the odd chat online.
    I was very sad to hear of his passing.
    R.I.P. Condolences to all his friends and family.

    Very sad to see this! I hired Darin to do some handyman work and paint my studio just off the classifieds. Turned out to be an amazing job and he worked so hard each time and always went over and beyond!! Condolences to the family!
