Darrell Quinton Torgerson Sr., 68, of Hendrum, Minnesota, died Wednesday, October 21, 2009, at the Halstad Living Center, Halstad, Minnesota.

Darrell was born to Harry and Esther (Brager) Torgerson on May 31, 1941, in Sharon, North Dakota. Together with his three brothers in Finley, North Dakota he made memories that will not be forgotten. The bond they shared continued until his death. In 1961 he married Janice (Lee) Torgerson. The two of them would live in Ada, Hillsboro, Bloomington, and Grand Forks, where he worked various construction jobs before settling in Hendrum, Minnesota, in 1969. They would make their home there for the next 40 years. He worked for Gremada Industries from 1969 until his retirement in 2005.

He was lucky enough to share a cabin on Star Lake with his brother Ron. The two of them, with many family members and lake friends, spent countless days on the water and shore having fun. There, he and Ron would host an annual pinochle tournament for the four brothers. The stories from those 20 years will bring smiles to faces for a long time to come. Over the years Darrell spent much of his free time hunting and fishing with his brother Ron, nephews and friends. When he was not fishing and hunting he was looking forward to the next family reunion or monthly cousin gathering. And on Sunday afternoons during football season you could find him in his favorite recliner watching a Vikings game with his son Jr.

Darrell is survived by his wife Janice; Sons: Darrell Jr., his wife Carla (Hendrum, MN) and their daughter Chelsey: (Fargo, ND) Terry (Hendrum, MN) and his children Sabrina, Hailey, Paige, James, and Ethan; (All of Fargo, ND) Brothers: Harris Torgerson and his wife Vernie; (Wichita Falls, TX) Rich and his wife Betty; (Ocala, FL) Ron and his wife Cher; (Anoka, MN) and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Darrell was preceded in death by his father Harry; mother Esther, and three brothers-in-law, William Steer, Danny Amiot and Jimmy Lee.
