In Memory



It is with great sadness we said goodbye to Daryl George Haider who passed away unexpectedly yet peacefully on March 1. Daryl was born in Mandan, N.D., to Marge and George Haider on July 29, 1948. He attended Little Flower School in Billings, graduating from Senior High. Daryl completed his education at Eastern Montana College and enlisted in the Army serving from 1967 through 1972.

Daryl married his first wife, Karen, in 1969. From that union their daughter Katie was born. He married his second wife, Stephanie, in 1987 and their son Daren was born. The proudest moments of his life were the births of his children followed by the births of his grandchildren.Daryl was always a hard worker, working in the garage door industry his entire life. He retired from Billings Overhead Door after 20 years of service.

Daryl had a wonderful sense of humor, ever considerate of others. He made many friends through years of league golfing and bowling. Everyone who knew Daryl had their own sense of his laughter and compassion. He touched many lives. Daryl was predeceased by his grandparents, mother and father. He is survived by his wife, Stephanie, his daughter Katie (Michael) Falloon, his son, Daren, grandchildren Alexander and Mackenzie Falloon. He is also survived by his brother Dale (Jan), niece Tina Jensen and nephew Jeremy (Brooke).He had a lengthy struggle with lupus and a short battle with cancer.

Daryl was in several of my classes and became a friend to Bob in college. I remember going to watch Kerry and Terry Hoffman, Daryl, and Bob bowl at Sunset Lanes before I was married.  Lots of laughs.  Daryl has two great kids and was so excited when Darren was accepted to become a Billings police officer.  We ran into Daryl and Stephanie at many car events over the past few years.  We were both very sad to hear of his passing.  Daryl was a friendly, fun guy.

I didn't know Daryl had passed and I am so very sorry.  We was a great friend and we had lots of fun officiating at track meets when I still lived in Billings.  It's very sobering to think of how many classmates we have lost.

I hadn't seen Daryl for several years - not since we had a new garage door installed.  It's sad how we have lost track of those who live in the same town as we do.
