Darryl Everett Warwick, beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother, passed away peacefully at his home on Tuesday, August 21, 2018, at the age of 77 following a lengthy illness.
Darryl was born April 26, 1941, in Nampa, Idaho. Darryl was the second of three sons born to Ralph and Ethel Warwick. He attended school in Nampa, graduating from Nampa High School in 1959. He attended Boise Junior College where he was elected class representative.
From an early age, Darryl had a very strong work ethic — starting as a young boy working for local farmers picking peas, strawberries, apples and corn to earn extra spending money. At the age of 15, he started work as a boxboy for Consumers Market in Nampa where he worked all through high school, and then after graduating high school, was transferred to the Caldwell Blvd. store to become assistant manager. On October 1, 1961, Darryl married Janet Shroll in Nampa. In December of 1961, he was hired as a management trainee with Idaho First National Bank; he was the first trainee hired based off real work experience and not solely a college degree. His position with Idaho First National Bank relocated Darryl and Janet to Weiser, Idaho, and this is where their first son Monte was born in 1962. In 1964, they were relocated back to Nampa, and in 1965, their second son Ron was born. In 1966, they were transferred back to Weiser as he was promoted to assistant manager. In March 1969, their daughter Jodee was born. In December of 1969, Darryl was promoted to bank manager for the Homedale branch. The family moved to Homedale, and in October 1972, their third son Michael was born. Darryl and Janet raised their family in Homedale, loving the small-town community where they were able to see and participate in their children’s numerous activities. In 1977, Darryl’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to purchase the True Value Hardware Store in Kuna. In 1980, he left Idaho First National Bank to run his store full-time, and in 2006, Darryl and Janet moved back to Nampa.
Darryl and Janet enjoyed retirement years by traveling on several cruises with their brothers and sisters-in-law. Darryl also loved fishing anywhere in Idaho with his best buddy Darrel Krause, spending days at the family cabin in Donnelly as well as making regular trips to Jackpot, Nevada. However, his greatest joy was any time spent with his family, especially his seven grandchildren.
The family truly appreciates the wonderful care that Dr. John Freeman and nurse Francis provided the last several years as his illness progressed.
Darryl is survived by his wife of 56 years, Janet; his children Monte (Tracie) of Boise, Ron (Michelle) of Nampa, Jodee of Nashville, TN, and Michael of Meridian; grandchildren Cory, Sadie (Sirtorrey), Jordan (Jabari), Kyle, Nicole, Jacob and Michael Zander; his brothers Carroll (Roberta) and Gayle (Mary); brother-in-law Norman Shroll (Vickie); and numerous nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents.
Services will be held 11 a.m. Wednesday, September 5, at Nampa Funeral Home-Yraguen Chapel. Burial will be at Koherlawn Cemetery, Nampa. Viewing will be held 4-7 p.m. Tuesday, September 4.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made to The Salvation Army or your favorite charity.
