August 4, 1979 – June 17, 2022
This day a great angel was taken home, and on this day the other side smiled that he was coming home. We are so sad to announce the sudden passing of our brother, dad, uncle, son, friend, and love.
Daryl touched everybody he met with his laser wit, funny sense of humour, solid words and heart of gold. He was a survivor of cancer, who wasn’t afraid to share his story, and help those around him. Daryl valued family above all and loved nothing more than being a father to his four loving daughters and uncle to his many nieces and nephews. Daryl was very athletic, played floor hockey, coached soccer, and his teams took many medals. He was even called by a member when Canada won the Winter Olympics to thank him for his knowledge.
He loved his dogs and his heart was huge. What words can make the pain of losing such a kind soul better? He loved hard, lived well and laughed often. His infectious energy and laughter will be missed dearly.
He is survived by his loving daughters: Jaida, Emma, Jewel and Eva; his partner Heather Turk; sister Linda Robinson; brother Greg Janzen (Erin); aunties Shirley Anderson and Cheryl Martens; nieces and nephews: Melissa, Larissa, Seth, Noah, Shoal, Brandon, Kendra, Aidan and Olivia; great-nephew and niece: Bennett and Light; the mother of his children Natalie Nault; and numerous family, friends, team mates, classmates, and all those he touched.
He is predeceased by his mother Sherry Robinson who accompanied him this day, his father Dave Smith, and his brother Dean Robinson.
Funeral arrangements provided by Hainstock Funeral Home in Edmonton, Alta., with a service day TBA. A celebration of his life will take place in Rocky Mountain House, Alta., TBA.
