BRUMMELL, Darryl Warren.

Posted by on August 6, 2014

BrummellDarrylPaperOn Friday August 1st, 2014 in his 72nd year, peacefully at London Heath Sciences Centre, London ON after a courageous battle with heart disease. Beloved husband of Diane (Reeve) for 51 years. Dear father of Craig Brummell (Debbie) and Sara Orlando (Vince). Much loved grandfather of Lauren Brummell, Ryan Maedel, and Carson Brummell. Also survived by his brother Arden Brummell (Susan) of Calgary, and his Aunt and Uncle Leyland and Barbara Pearsall of Picton. Pre-deceased by his parents Marshall Brummell (1991) and Areta Brummell (2013). Also survived by nieces and nephews Ruth, Martin, and Jessica Brummell, and many cousins in Eastern Ontario. Born in Warings Corners near Picton ON, Darryl grew up in Kingston on Toronto St. across from Rideau School where his Dad was the principal. After graduating from KCVI in Kingston, he started his career with the Canadian Bank of Commerce in finance, which had him living in Kingston, Burlington, Brantford and Woodstock. He was then with Currah Mills in Hickson, and the CO-OP. He took a job with Ralston Purina in Woodstock and lived in Moncton NB, Truro NS, and Thamesville ON while working for them. He always wanted to own his own company to be his own boss, so in 1978 left his corporate job and he purchased Essex Topcrop Sales in the commercial livestock feed and wild bird food manufacturing business. He grew that business from a small office and store in a house on Talbot St. in Essex in front of the mill to a thriving manufacturing and distribution business with three locations in Essex and Colborne, well-known and respected to his peers in his industry. He was a passionate man to all that knew him, from family, friends and business associates. Those who did business with him and had the good fortune to know him well, knew his bark was always worse than his bite. He loved his motorcycles, traveling across Canada and the US, and the game of golf. In the past few years he has enjoyed working less, and being able to travel to Texas and Florida in the winter months, enjoying golf all year round, but always kept one hand in the door at Topcrop just to keep everyone in line. Thank you to the team at the LHSC CSRU and Dr. Kiaii, Dr. Butler, all of the CSRU nurses, and Dr. Sabga for the loving care they provided Darryl in his final months. Visiting at the Reid Funeral Home & Reception Centre, 14 Russell Street, Leamington (519-326-2631) Tuesday 2-5 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Service to be held at the funeral home Wednesday, August 6, 2014 at 2 p.m..
