- About Us
Darris James Lind was born January 14, 1958 in Vernal Utah, to Kenneth Lind and Renee Richardson Justesen.
Darris James Lind, at the age of 60, chose to return to his Heavenly Father. Those of us who knew him, his quick wit and hilarious stories, will greatly miss him. He will be reunited with his father, mother and his late wife Billy Sue Jackson Lind.
Darris spent most of his years in Vernal Utah and is survived by his many brothers and sisters, his son’s Jesse Lind, Jeremy Caldwell, and Jordan Caldwell, and step children Lisa Wiswell, Mindy Hatch, Zac Hatch and Shannon Seeley, and his Step Mom Sylvia Martinez Lind. He was a carpenter by trade but was very handy with farm equipment or anything that needed fixed. He started his life in Vernal Utah but spent some of his years in California, Arizona and Wyoming. Wyoming became a place that was close to his heart and where he spent most of his happiest years. Darris and Billy Sue spent time in Jackson, Alpine and Pinedale Wyoming. The Grey’s River was a favorite place to camp and spend time, and he always had a bar stool reserved at the Cowboy Bar in Pinedale. He eventually ended up back in Vernal were he started his journey and decided to end his journey.
If ever there was a man born in the wrong era it was Darris Lind. He would have loved to ride along with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and take a toast with Doc Holiday. Darris loved westerns and everything from the old west. He could have built a homestead with his bare hands and just a few tools, that he probably invented himself. Darris spent most of his life as a carpenter. His signature is on homes from Utah, Wyoming, California, Arizona, and a few other places, when he would get a wild hair and take on a new adventure somewhere. He was a man that never compromised who he was and his opinions of the world, but he had a big heart and truly loved the people that were close friends and family.
A memorial service in his honor is be held Sunday, December 30, 2018 at 1:00PM at the Phillips Ashley Valley Funeral Home. Online condolences may be shared at www.AshleyValleyFuneralHome.com
