Darrel VanDenheuvel

June 29, 1951 — April 15, 2023

Little Falls

Darrel Joseph VanDenheuvel, 71, of Little Falls, passed away on April 15, 2023, at the St. Cloud Hospital surrounded by family. Services will be held at 2pm on Saturday, June 3, 2023, at the Brenny Family Funeral Chapel in Randall, with a visitation starting one hour prior to services.

Darrel was born on June 29th, 1951, in Little Falls to Joseph and Dorothy (Posch) VanDenheuvel, where he grew up on the family farm. After graduating in 1969, Darrel worked road construction before taking over the family farm.  He had started driving truck at age 15 and went back to that career in the mid-eighties and continued until his retirement. After retirement he went back to his passion of farming. Darrel was always just a phone call away and was always there to help anyone who needed it. He inherently knew how things worked and had a gift for analyzing and fixing anything mechanical.  He was a great loving father and grandfather that instilled a strong sense of work ethic and morals in his children.  He taught by example how to be the type of person that does the right and honorable thing. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Darrel is preceded in death by his parents and sister Janice. He is survived by his children, Tina, Jason (Annalee), Rebecca, Sam (Megan), and Charity; ten grandchildren; and siblings, Ron, Darlene, Eddie, Roger, and Gary.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Brenny Family Funeral Chapel, Randall.
