Darrell Eugene Sivigny, 78, passed away peacefully at his home in Colorado Springs, Colorado on December 14, 2022 with family by his side. He was born on August 22, 1944 in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Darrell graduated from Robbinsdale High School (1962) in Robbinsdale, Minnesota and then joined the US Marine Corps in 1963. After his honorable discharge from the US Marine Corps he was employed by Control Data Corporation as a computer technician, which was his life long career. He was transferred to Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1970 where he raised his family and lived out his life. He loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them and his pets, camping, boating and water skiing. He was an avid reader, movie goer/tv watcher and a huge fan of classic tv shows such as "The Three Stooges", "Charlie Chan" and "Sherlock Holmes". While he was able to attend, he never missed watching his grandkids play sports or participate in their other activities. He also enjoyed his Sunday drives to visit his kids and grandkids or just to drive around the city. For his longer Sunday drives, he often would take his classic 1961 Impala south on I-25 towards Trinidad, Walsenburg and Raton. He enjoyed working on cars, especially his 61’.
Darrell is survived by his former wife, Dee Rawson of Colorado Springs, Colorado and their children, Pamela Jo Anderson (Chad) of Peyton, Colorado, Joe Sivigny (Lanae) of Colorado Springs, Colorado, his stepchildren, Ty Kelly (Angela) of Fountain, Colorado, Todd Kelly of Gilbert, Arizona, and his grandchildren, Seth, Sara and Scott Anderson of Peyton, Colorado, Kaiden Sivigny of Colorado Springs, Colorado and Ashley and Blake Kelly of Gilbert, Arizona. Brothers in law, John Compere of Angola, Indiana, Steve Forrey of Fraser, Michigan and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
