THATCHER, Daryl Aubrey

January 24, 1947 – Calgary, Alberta

October 10, 2021 - Three Hills, Alberta


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Daryl Thatcher, on Sunday, October 10, 2021, at the age of 74 years, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.


Daryl worked as a grader operator for over 33 years and loved every minute of it. After his retirement he enjoyed golfing and socializing with his friends. Anyone who knew Daryl knew that his laugh and kind spirit was infectious.


Along with his loving wife of 53 years, Lynn, Daryl is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Shawna and Kevin; son and daughter-in-law, Curtis and Chrissy; grandchildren, Brayden (Tiara), Chaelyn, Dakota and Chase; brother and sister-in-law, Don and Gail; sister and brother-in-law, Lynn and Ted; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.


God saw you getting tired

And a cure was not to be

So he put His arms around you

And whispered "Come to me."


With tearful eyes we watched you

As you slowly slipped away

And though we loved you dearly

We couldn't make you stay.


A beautiful heart stopped beating

hard working hands at rest

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best.
