A private funeral service will be held with inurnment to follow in Hillside Cemetery, Sheffield where military honors will be provided.

Condolences may be sent to Darrel’s family in care of Hogan Bremer Moore Colonial Chapel, 126 3rd St. NE, Mason City.

Darrel was born in Hampton, Iowa on May 24, 1949 to Leo and DeElda (Leimbacher) Bonjour. He graduated from Hampton High School before joining the United States Army where he served as a paratrooper in Korea.

Following his return from the military Darrel moved to Mason City and began working for Armour in Britt, where he was employed for many years until the plant’s closing, at which time he transferred to the Mason City location. Following retirement Darrel kept busy and loved working outside. He mowed lawns and did yard work for many families in Mason City and always put in the time to make sure their lawns looked perfect. His final job was at HyVee which he always said was his favorite job and the most fun!

Darrel’s top devotion in life was praising and serving the Lord. He loved life and people, and although his battle with cancer brought him down he knew this was God’s calling and he was ready to join Him in paradise.

Darrel loved his church and his church family at Christ’s Church in Mason City, and couldn’t have asked for a better church home. He and Barb were very involved in Sunday worship service and Darrel always began and ended the day with prayer and reading from his Bible. He was always adding family and friends and others in need to his prayer list.

Darrel loved classic cars and collecting Coca Cola memorabilia. He and Barb enjoyed daily visits to the Seawall in Clear Lake which always seemed to bring Darrel peace and comfort.

Those grateful in sharing in his life are his wife, Barb Bonjour; son, Brian (Melissa) Bonjour and their children, Justin, Joey, Amber, and Audrina; Barb’s children, Michael, Stacy, Jeff and their families; and his brother, Steve (Sherry) Bonjour; as well as extended relatives and many friends.

Darrel is preceded in death by his parents; and his son, Allen, who passed in 1998.
