Darryl Berwyn Erie
September 3, 1966 - October 8, 2020

Place of Birth: Powers Lake, North Dakota
Residence: Stanley, North Dakota
Age: 54

Darryl Berwyn Erie, 54, of Stanley, North Dakota passed away the early morning of October 8, 2020.

Darryl was born on September 3, 1966, at the Powers Lake Hospital to Arnold and Viola (Godejohn) Erie. He was raised and educated in Powers Lake, where he graduated in 1984. He attended NDSSS in Wahpeton and graduated with a degree in Auto Mechanics in 1986.

Darryl was united in marriage to Valerie Opdahl in June 1992. To this marriage their son, Derrick, and their daughter, Payton, were born. Darryl worked various oilfield positions and most recently as a private consultant for Continental Resources. He and his brother, Larry, took over the family farm in 1986, where they continued to work together. In recent years Derrick joined the farming operation.
Darryl lived life to the fullest. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, traveling, boating, snowmobiling, and spending time with all of his many friends and family. He was an avid Minnesota Viking and Nascar fan and attended many sporting events. Most recently, Darryl and his significant other Gail were spending their winters in Arizona. Darryl will always be remembered for his gentle smile and impeccable dimples that could light up a room. With his friendly, outgoing personality he easily made friends where ever he went.

Darryl was baptized and confirmed into the Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Powers Lake.

Darryl’s absence will be felt immensely by all his family and friends and those who loved him most.

Darryl is survived by son, Derrick (Shayla) Erie of Powers Lake, ND; daughter, Payton Erie (Wyatt Goodman) of Minot, ND; significant other, Gail Vachal of Stanley, ND. His six siblings, Wayne (Cathrine) Erie of Cedar Rapids, IA; Bernard (Tony) Erie of Mound, MN; Dorothy (Ken) Hayden of South Beloit, IL; Arlene (Fred) Johnson of Stanley, ND; LaDonna (Lauren) Roloff of Powers Lake, ND; and Larry (Lauralee) Erie or Powers Lake, ND. And numerous special nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.
