Darrell L. Dutton Obituary

In Loving Memory of Darrell L. Dutton

Darrell was born August 5, 1924 in Chico, CA. He passed away on October 11, 2015. He grew up in the gold dredging town of Hammonton, CA, and was one of four children born to Charlie and Reta Dutton. He attended Hammonton grade school through the 8th grade and graduated from Marysville High School.

Darrell loved his family very much. He always looked forward to having dinner on Sundays with the family. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and treks with his friends out in the Nevada desert. He enjoyed watching baseball and football games too. He was an avid Giants and 49er's fan. Darrell always had a smile for you when he would see you. His favorite food was chocolate. As he said, "It's good for your heart, even more so if it's dark chocolate."

He worked at the Mare Island Navy yard before enlisting in the U.S. Navy during WWII on March 29, 1943. After the war, he went to work for PG&E in Marysville, CA. He retired after working for the company for 35 years. He started as a lineman and ended up working with the survey department researching easements, etc., as well as on site work with the surveyor.

He is survived by his brother Richard Dutton of Dinuba, CA; sister Darlene Goss of Marysville, CA; nephews Richard Goss and Dennis Goss of Marysville, CA, and Larry Goss of Kodiak Island; nieces Patty Scibuola of Texas, Jolene Filice of Marysville, CA, Debbie Carter of Sacramento, CA, Renee Stevens of Redwood City, CA, and Deanna Dutton of Washington State as well as several great nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be held on Friday, October 23, 2015, 2pm, at Sierra View Memorial Park. Darrell will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
