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.
