Darrell K. Knutson Obituary
March 6, 1957 - January 28, 2016 Darrell Kevin Knutson, 58, of San Clemente, CA , passed away on January 28, 2016. His friend and devoted caregiver Lori, sisters Christine and Karen, cousins Michael, Sean, Kevin and Mary Ellen and numerous cousins on the East Coast, survive him. Darrell lived most of his childhood and young adult life in San Gabriel, CA. He later moved to San Clemente, near the ocean that he enjoyed so much. He was all energy. He was a superstar of baseball and football at San Gabriel High School, and he was always up for adventure: scuba, surfing, hiking. He served in the U.S. Navy aboard the U.S.S. Trenton. Even after an accident at 22 left him paralyzed, he remained active - he even designed and built his own workout devices, and he kept his beloved van in tip top shape. He was a doer. He was fiercely loyal to family and friends and loved us all and his pets, especially his cat Bubba. He was a natural storyteller with a phenomenal memory and he loved to make us laugh. He wrote a novel which he hoped to publish one day. He had a personal connection with God and a strong faith. We like to think he is now with his parents, Bill and Dixie, grandparents, Tommy and Minnie, brothers, Billy and Eric, Aunt Vera and cousin Barbara, his recently departed cousin Darci, and all of his other loved ones that preceded him. We like to think that he is making them laugh and smile and shake their heads in delight that there they all are, laughing together again. Services at Rose Hills Memorial Park Whittier, Rainbow Chapel, April 22, 2016, 11 a.m.
