I had the great fortune of teaching Darryl in grade 6 and 7 while he attended North Saanich Middle School. A few of the great things that I will always remember him for were his gentle and earnest nature, his willingness to please, and his big soulful eyes. I was his homeroom teacher but I was also his PE teacher. There were several times when my students would talk me out of the dreaded "Run Day" and we would simply go on a Power Walk instead. Many of my students would clump together and not want to stride along beside me, but Darryl chose to do otherwise. More often than not, we would walk shoulder to shoulder, and he would keep me entertained with a variety of conversational topics. These quite frequently focused on his strong beliefs and insights on his indigenous cultural background. Darryl enlightened me...he will always be one of my all time favourites. My deepest condolences to his family and community members.
