Darryl Richard Stefanik

Feb.19, 1958 – Oct. 6, 2023


On this day our beloved Darryl was carried into heaven by the outstretched arms of God.

A loving and most dedicated husband to Cornelia for forty-four years; father to Anastasia (Brett) and Franz-Paul (Nechelle) and Pops to Bauer, Beckam, Beau, Jaxon and Xander. 

Darryl faithfully served as Pastor and Shepherd to the congregation of St. John’s Snyder for twenty- six years and four months from where he retired in 2021.

His love and passions also extended to the arts, theatre, tap dancing and mastering the culinary world. 

He will be remembered by many as Pastor or Darryl, or Pops, but above all just for being Darryl, a child of God.

Our most heartfelt gratitude is extended to Pastor Larry Ritter and Dr. Scher whose steadfast, dedicated and compassionate care offered Darryl and us all the assurance that his spiritual and physical care were in the very best of keeping. Thank you to all who kept us in your prayers and may God bless you!
