DARRELL FARLAND
APRIL 6, 2015
Darrell Farland, 72, fittingly left this earth to meet his creator on Easter Sunday, April 6, 2015. A memorial service will be held at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, May 2, at New Song Church, Bismarck.

Darrell was born in Bowbells, ND to Dorothy and Clarence Farland. After graduating from Bowbells High School he joined the Navy. When he returned home from the service he met Shirley Iverson who was teaching in Bowbells. They were married in 1964 and soon after their son, Shane, was born.

Loving sports, Darrell wanted to make them a part of his daily life so chose coaching as a career, attending Minot State. It was during this time, Darrell’s life as he knew it changed dramatically when a motorcycle accident left him a quadriplegic. Darrell spent a year in rehab in Grand Forks with his wife and son by his side.

During that time he was told he would never be able to support a family, have a career, or live past his 40’s. So being the tenacious individual he was, he proved everyone wrong on all three predictions. Darrell changed his major and attended UND. He worked until his retirement at the age of 62.

During his working career he accomplished more than most can take credit for. He became the first Director of Disabled Student Services at UND. He was one of the founding members of the Wallbanger’s wheelchair basketball team and was their first coach. Later on Darrell was appointed by Governor Art Link to become the Director of the Governor’s Council on Human Resources.

He worked diligently for the rights of women, children and youth, elderly, and the disabled. Darrell advocated for handicapped accessibility legislation and was on the White House lawn when the ADA bill was signed into law. He met and shook hands with two U.S. presidents during his working career.

Beyond work, Darrell loved racing. In his early days at UND, Darrell and his friends built race cars in Darrell’s garage. Later on Darrell owned two different racetracks in North Dakota, Queen City Speedway in Dickinson and Fastrax Speedway in Bismarck.

Darrell had many friends who referred to him as their “go to guy” when needing advice. He had a heart of gold and would give any friend, foe, or stranger a lending ear or helping hand.

When Darrell’s grandson, Talen, was born Darrell’s life changed once again. Darrell seemed to have more vigor for life. Darrell and Talen spent hours in the garage working on different woodworking and art projects, going to Barnes and Noble and just hanging out. Grandpa attended all the sporting events he could and was Talen’s number one fan.

We know Darrell is in a place where he is walking and running again, however, he will be missed by the many family and friends whose hearts he has touched.

He is survived by his wife, JerriLynn and step-daughter, Kaylyn of Mandan; mother, Dorothy of Mandan; son and daughter-in-law, Shane and Jackie Farland of Bismarck;

sister, Deanne (Ron) Stegmann; grandson, Talen and step-grandchildren, Nikki (Logan) Fischer, Jordan (Jacki) Christman, and Joshua Christman;

great grandchildren Cahan, Griffin, and Citti; and ex-wife Shirley Farland.

“ Check ya later.”
