Darrell David Styve was born in Decorah Sept. 23, 1939, the only child of Raymond Milton Styve and Beatrice Magdalene (Swehla) Styve. Darrell attended school in Decorah and, following graduation, went on to study for a period of time at Iowa State Teachers College in Cedar Falls. While in high school Darrell met his lifelong friend and sweetheart, Judy Kay (Koch) Styve, and they were married Sept. 10, 1960, in Decorah. Darrell and Judy are the proud parents of three boys: Bryan David, Cris Michael and Lee Alan. The Styves lived in Decorah, Faribault, Minn., Willmar, Minn. and for the past 20-plus years in Alexandria, Minn. One of the real highlights of Darrell’s life was spending time with his two grandchildren, Rachel Marie and Michael Thomas; and his great-grandson, Carter Matthew Duenow. Darrell loved the Lord and studying His word, especially enjoying his men’s study group at church. He will be missed for his humor and sincerity.

Darrell is survived by his loving wife, Judy; sons: Bryan (Suzanne McBurney) Styve, Cris Styve and Lee Styve; grandchildren, Rachel (Matt) Duenow and Michael Styve; great-grandson, Carter Duenow; sister-in-law, Norma (Koch) Einck and husband Jerome; and many nieces and nephews.
Darrell was preceded in death by his parents and several sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law; also aunts; uncles; and cousins.
