DARRELL ROBERT STONEHOUSE
May 15, 1948 ˜ January 16, 2021

We as a family are at peace knowing our big, handsome guy will no longer have to battle a devastating Alzheimer’s foe. Though Darrell valiantly fought a long, hard battle with the disease, the circumstances of his passing were unexpected and we miss him dearly.
Darrell and his best friend and wife of 50 years, Michele, proudly raised three sons, Travis, Shane (Loretta) and Kyle (Nicole). “Bumpa” will be greatly missed by his well-loved grandchildren, Hayley, Hayden, Abigail, Kiera and Elijah, as well as Hayley’s son and his great-grandson, Callan. They will always remember the twinkle in his eye and warm, welcoming grin that he wore when spending time with the people he loved. Through the years, he was our family’s rock. He was always there when we needed him.
Darrell and Michele attended every sporting event their sons participated in, all while Darrell cheered them on from the sidelines. As their number one supporter, he was always devoted to being a loving, kind and patient father. One of his greatest joys was having his whole family play on our softball team together.
Known as “Stoney” by his co-workers, Darrell was admired for his hard work and engaging personality by all of his buddies at the Kinder Morgan Oil Company. Over the 45 years he worked there, he formed many lifelong friendships that helped to make the years fly by.
Darrell Honey,
You are my everything. We shared so many wonderful years together. It’s going to be so very difficult to be here without you. You made my life complete.

Hugs and Kisses, I Love You Sweetie.

I was the baby of the Stonehouse grandchildren. I remember Darrell and my sister Lynda doing things together. I was still very young when Darrell married his wife and I was there with my parents. I used to go to uncle George and aunt Evelyn's house while grandma worked. I remembered when Darrell and Richard came home I would always bug them. Since I moved when I was young to Olympia I missed out on seeing my cousins, especially since I was so much younger. Rest in peace Darrell. And my sincere prayers and condolences to hi family.

Darrell was my stepbrother since 1960 when his mother married my father. I know his wife, boys and grandchildren were the world to him.
It is sad that we lost contact many years ago. I will always remember him as a big usually happy always kind person. I am sure he made the world a little better for being here.

We looked forward to seeing Michelle and Darrell every spring at the garden shows. Jes and I have made all the windchimes in their yard. I remember him falling off the ladder hanging one! Love you both!

I was lucky enough to be Darrell and Micheles neighbor.I got to work with him for about 8 years at Kindermorgan, a job I couldn't have gotten without him. He was the hardest worker , could do anything, if someone had a question about the plant, it was always "go ask Darrell". I will really miss talking to him over the backyard fence, his smiling face and funny stories, always joking. I really admired his love for his family, his grandkids. Thoughts and prayers to the family, Darrell was a great neighbor!!

I will miss my big brother dearly. Knowing that he is at peace is a comfort to me but it still hurts that he is gone from all of us. There are so many memories that bring a smile to me and I am sure he would still be telling everyone the many stories of his life that brought pride and happiness to him. I am glad that I shared my life with such a wonderful man.

Doug and I have many memories of all the softball years sharing them with the Stone houses. Darrell was so fun to be around and watching him with his family was an inspiration he will be missed. Our thoughts go out to his family.

As a high school classmate I remember Darrell first and foremost as positive and joyful young man who turned into the kind of person we should all aspire to become. We played sports together. Darrell excelled as an athlete on the football, basketball, and baseball teams.
Over the subsequent years I saw Darrell at his sons sporting events and he was always smiling and welcoming. He has left a wonderful legacy in how he positively touched the lives of family and friends.
He truly enjoyed the journey and I am happy to know that his was a life well lived.
