BRANIFF, Daryl Arthur (January 18, 1956- September 8, 2023)
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Daryl Arthur Braniff at Juravinski Hospital in the early morning of Friday, September 8, 2023. He is predeceased by his parents David and Mary Josephine Braniff (née Robson) and beloved son Adam. He was the loving father to David (Pam) and Brittainy (Ben), cherished grandfather to Emily and Jack, dear sibling to Philip (Judy) and Lynda (Wayne), caring uncle to Matthew, Marni and Laura, great uncle to Arwynn, Jensen, Reia and cousin to Patti, Sandra, Connie, and Jeff. He was a long time friend to Elsa Sauga and Barb Bench.
Daryl was an incredibly kind and social man. He enjoyed meeting new people through his work in real estate and while working on the ships in St. Lawrence Seaway. In his retirement, he started competing in long drive competitions across North America and in the Caribbean. He made many lifelong friends while competing in the World long drive championships. Daryl was an accomplished competitor, coach and enthusiast of all sports. He will be greatly missed by his fishing, bowling, darts and pool friends. His dearest wish was fulfilled in 2021 when he had the opportunity to walk his daughter Brittainy down the aisle on her wedding day. Daryl will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
