After a long battle with cancer, on May 8th, 2019 at 9:03 am in the Kitimat General Hospital, surrounded by family, Darrel Wayne Stelmaschuk passed away and is now at peace.
A loving husband, adoring father, brother, good neighbour, and dedicated friend, Darrel is survived by his wife, Diane Stelmaschuk, his five children (Michael, Jennifer, Rosemary, Jody, and John), ten grandchildren (Asher, Cohen, Parker, Jackson, Jayde, Cora-Leigh, Logan, Sebastian, Liam, and John Jr. ),and by his two brothers and his sister-in-law (Keith, Gary, and Hali). Laughing and living life to the fullest, Darrel was born and raised by his mother, Ida Stelmaschuk, and father, Michael Stelmaschuk, in Vancouver, British Columbia.
During his amazing life, Darrel was a musician, a Mason, a radio DJ, a wedding DJ, and he even hosted a radio show. Darrel was extremely proud of his family and friends and enjoyed working with everyone at Rio Tinto Alcan. A sharp sense of humour, only matched by his intelligence and charm, not to mention his impressive karaoke skills, Darrel will be greatly missed.
A Celebration of Life was held in Kitimat at our home on May 11, 2019. We reminisced and celebrated Darrel the way he would have wanted, with family and friends laughing and singing.
Please note, in lieu of flowers, we invite you to make a donation in Darrelâ€™s name to the Acute Care Unit at the Kitimat General Hospital.
