Darcy was born and raised in Weyburn, SK. At six years old our Grandpa Pete Burner taught Darcy to play the drums, which he kept up for many years. Darcy was a mischievous kid with quite the imagination, and had a nickname for all his friends and then some. In the early years a lot of time was spent with our relatives in Estevan. The defining moment in Darcy’s life at 16 years old, is when he came to believe that God truly loved him and by faith he put his life in Jesus’s hands. In 1984, Darcy graduated from Weyburn Comprehensive School. Darcy worked as a gas jockey at Turbo and at 19 accepted my offer to travel to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for 3 weeks. In his early 20’s Darcy worked at Trucker’s Inn fueling all types of vehicles. Darcy loved cats and our family always seemed to acquire a special furry friend along the way. When Mom and Dad retired to Spiritwood Acres in 1992, to their new home, Darcy started to walk with Mom all around the park areas for their enjoyment. Darcy liked to golf and always managed to beat me by a couple of strokes. But what Darcy enjoyed the most was music; whether just the radio or all the sixties albums he collected. Darcy always had tunes cranked on his head phones. When Mom and Dad moved to what would be their last house in Canora; Darcy helped build Dad’s golf shed and new deck onto the house, along with his master builder, Uncle Keith. When Darcy came to Canora for visits, he was happy to help Mom in the yard, along with looking for our blind cat Missy, who always seemed to disappear. Darcy walked wherever he went and tended to carry some extra weight around the middle which resulted in 2 knee replacements. But that didn’t stop him from walking around Weyburn to have coffee with the boys most afternoons. We spent many hours remembering our Mom and Dad who went before us. Darcy had a big heart that he used a lot until it finally gave out.
Darcy, my brother, you will be sadly missed by all who enjoyed your company. I’ll see you later...
When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me and I’m not there to see, If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me,I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,
While I’m thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, And each time you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand
And said my place was ready in Heaven far above, And that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love.
But as I turned and walked away, a tear fell from my eye, For all my life I’d always thought I didn’t want to die.
I had so much to live for, I had so much to do, It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad, I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, I thought, just for awhile, I'd say goodbye and maybe see you smile.
So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me ...I’m right here in your heart.
