Obituary – Darin Jay Attrill


Darin Jay Attrill

Nov. 26, 1961 – Nov. 1, 2022

Dearly loved husband of Barbie Dutcher passed away peacefully after a long battle with cancer. 

Darin grew up in Chilliwack, B.C. and left quite a mark there. As well as being senior class president of Sardis Secondary School, he was also a well-known disc jockey, hockey player, hockey coach, and trauma nurse at Chilliwack General Hospital. But he is best remembered as an empathetic, kind, and caring volunteer. On Sundays, he would assist in cooking for and feeding the homeless. He volunteered with his church group to build an orphanage in San Felipe, Mexico. 

It was his love of cooking and food that brought him and Barbie together. A perfect match. And even on his absolute worst days after chemotherapy, he managed to laugh and smile for everyone. That infectious laugh will be missed. 

Darin loved being part of the Point Roberts community and wanted nothing more than to spend his final days here, which he did. He often said, “When I fell in love with Barbie, I fell in love with Point Roberts.”

There will be a celebration in the spring. No one loved a party more than Darin so we will fill up the dance floor in his honor.
