Derald Lee “Darryl” Knull

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Derald, better known to his family and friends as Darryl, after a short but courageous battle with lung cancer. Darryl chose to leave his life on earth with dignity intact and passed away peacefully in his home in Qualicum Beach, aided by Dr Marcia Fukunaga and Susie, RN.

The family would like to send heartfelt thanks to all the doctors, nurses and staff at the Nanaimo Cancer Clinic for their excellent care as they fought to help Darryl win his battle with cancer. A great big thank you to the family doctor, Dr. Wagenaar and his staff. And finally, a big thank you to all those who phoned or came from afar to visit – it meant so much to Darryl to have your support.

In keeping with Darryl’s wishes, there will be no service.
