Obituary for Darrell Armand Kuipers

Darrell Armand  Kuipers
Darrell Armand Kuipers, 63, of Platte, SD passed away Wednesday, November 8, 2017 at his home. Funeral Services are 10:00 A.M. Saturday, November 11, 2017 at Platte Christian Reformed Church. A Committal Service will follow at Old Platte Cemetery.

Darrell Armand Kuipers was born on January 13, 1954 to Harm and Bertha (Westerhuis) Kuipers in Platte, SD. He attended Platte Christian Grade School, graduated from Dakota Christian High School in 1972 and went on to earn a degree as an Automotive Technician in 1974 from Southern State College, Springfield, SD. He was employed as an auto mechanic before beginning a career in farming. On April 25, 1981 Darrell was united in marriage to Gretchen Meuzelaar at the Tracy Christian Reformed Church in Tracy, IA.

Darrell was a member of the Platte Christian Reformed Church, a Cadets leader and served as Secretary/Treasurer for Forbes Township for many years. He loved working with his hands and learning new things. He enjoyed car restoration, woodworking and computer technology. While he had a deep and enduring appreciation of the land, his greatest love was reserved for his Lord, and his family.

Grateful for having shared in Darrell’s life: his wife of more than 36 years, Gretchen Kuipers of Platte, SD; two sons and a grandson: Ian (Valarie) Kuipers - Ezekiel of Platte, SD and Peter Kuipers of Sioux Center, IA; three brothers: Dennis Kuipers of Wellington, CO, Kurt (Gaik) Kuipers of Hilo, Hawaii, Kent (Nancy) Kuipers of Cadott, WI; four sisters: Donna (Ron) Kaemingk of Engelwood, CO, Arla (Michael) Mattock of Maryville, MO, Bonnie (Michael) Danielson of Minneapolis, MN and Lori (Michael) Holcomb of Cadott, WI; three brothers-in-law: David (Norma) Meuzelaar, Philip (Pam) Meuzelaar and Calvin (Mary) Meuzelaar; three sisters-in-law: Mary (Daryl) Pommer, Faith (Richard) Larson and Nancy (Kent) Kuipers; along with many nieces, nephews and friends.

Darrell was preceded in death by his parents, Harm and Bertha Kuipers; his parents-in-law, Isaac and Gwendolyn Meuzelaar; and his grandparents.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in Darrell’s honor may be directed to: Dakota Christian School, 37614 SD Hwy 44, Corsica, SD 57328.
