Daryl John Ervin was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 11, 1959 to Clarence and Lois Ervin. He graduated from Cyprus High School in 1977. Health problems took him from us much too soon.
Daryl married Dora Deen Ellett in 1979. To that union, a son, John was born in 1980. They were later divorced.
Daryl then married Leslie Newsome in August of 1989. To this union a son, Colby was born in 1993, and a daughter, Mackenzie was born in 1995.
Daryl worked for Lithcote Co. / Union Tank Car Co. for 34 years as a safety and environmental supervisor.
Daryl was a quiet man that didn’t talk a lot, but when something needed said – you heard it. He enjoyed the outdoors, whether it was hunting in his favorite spots, fishing on the river or on his boat at Flaming Gorge, wrestling trips with all of his children, camping with family and their friends, or just going for “rides”. He always said, “My church is in the mountains, you can’t get much closer to God than that.”
Daryl was preceded in death by his grandparents, Clarence A. Ervin, Annie Ervin, Arthur Harding, Emily Harding, father Clarence, brother Don and nephew Kody.
Daryl is survived by his wife Leslie, sons John and Colby, daughter Mackenzie, his loyal companion Tricksie, mother Lois, brothers Dave (Janine), Don’s wife Julie, Doug (Cheryl), Dan (Cory), sister Diane, plus a multitude of nieces and nephews.
There will be a graveside service at a later date.
