Born on April 11, 1947, in Eureka, SD, to the late Alvin and Laura Diede, Darrell is survived by his loving spouse, Sherry Diede, his daughter, Nikkol (Kipp) Anderson, and grandchildren, Maxwel, Regan, and Kendel Anderson.

Darrell graduated from Wishek High school in 1965. Darrell proudly served in the Army from 1967 to 1968, receiving training in Communication Electronics Command, Weapon's Locating Radar Operator, and Chemical Biological Radiological. Stationed in Germany, he earned distinctions including the National Defence Service Medal and Marksmanship Badge. Darrell attended NDSCS from 1969 to 1971. Darrell exchanged vows with Sherry R.
