August 13, 2021 - July 24, 2021


Darryl Giffen, age 58, of Apache Junction, AZ, passed away suddenly in Birch Bay, WA on July 24, 2021.  He was born in Red Deer, Alberta and moved with his family to Birch Bay in 1972. Darryl graduated from Blaine High School in 1981.

He then worked with his dad in the family business.  Darryl moved to Arizona in 1987 and worked in the R.V. industry until 1994.  He ventured out and started his own R.V. repair service (RV Doctor).  Darryl owned and operated a very successful business for 27 years.  He loved his work and had many loyal customers.  He was a Mr. Fix It.  Golfing, traveling, 4 wheeling, motor cycling, hiking and birding were his greatest joys.  Darryl was very outgoing and made lifelong friends everywhere he went.  Mention a party and he was there.

Darryl is survived by his father Don Giffen (Kathy), his mother Janet Reddick, his sister Deanna Hutchings, his side kick and loving brother Dale Giffen (Sheila), step-brothers Jason Muggy (Laurie) of Springfield, Oregon, and Brent Muggy (Tiffany) of Belmont, California, as well as all of Birch Bay.  He is also survived by one special nephew Brayden Giffen (Kimberlee) of Birch Bay and his dear niece Brooke Giffen of Mesa, AZ. Brayden and Brooke always called him Uncle DoDo, which became his call name by many other family members and friends.

A celebration of Darryl’s life will be held at a later date.

There are some people in life that make you laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger and live just a bit better.  Darryl was one of those.  He will be sadly missed by family, friends and all that knew him.

    Met Darryl 3 years ago when he came to our travel trailer for repairs. I called him every season to patch up our road weary rolling home. Did not know him long, and only through his RV Doctor business. I found him to be brutally honest and efficient, a good man. Very sad to hear of his sudden passing. Condolences to his family and friends.

    So sad to hear of Daryl’s passing. While it has been years since I last saw Daryl I have and will always consider him a close friend. We worked together at Traditional Custom coach and together we rebuilt an FMC motor home for a customer.
