Darrell M. Cottrell

Print Article

Today is the second anniversary since our Dad left us to be with our Mom on Sept. 12, 2015.

Darrell was born in Jennings, Montana, to George and Nora Cottrell, on April 7, 1939. He was raised and educated in Libby. He worked as a logger and a truck driver.

Darrell married Teresa Torrence in 1986. They loved to camp, fish, pick huckleberries, bowhunt, picnics and visiting family in Butte. They were inseparable even while fighting terminal cancer together.

Dad was preceded in death by his wife, Teresa (2012); his parents; a brother, Mel; five sisters, Bethene Candee, Jacqueline Powell, Georgia Parker, Geraldine Fletcher and Joann Collier.

His is deeply missed by his daughter Terri (Bill) Boyle and their family of Butte, and his son Dan Torrence of Kalispell, who was Dad’s caretaker for the last few years of his life. He is also survived by sons Michael and George Cottrell, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Private services will be held where their ashes will be combined — together forever.
