Daryl “Weiner” Gene DePoppe, of Henriette, passed away on Sunday, November 4, 2018 at his home. He was 65 years old.
Daryl, lovingly known by many as Weiner, was born on April 21, 1953 in Albert Lea, Minnesota. He was the middle of five children born to Harold and Rosella (Schmidt) DePoppe. He grew up on the family dairy farm and attended Alden/Conger Elementary School. When he was a teenager, he moved in with his uncle Wayne and aunt Diane. He played football while attending Byron High School.
When he was 18, he became a Certified Baker while working at a bakery. When he was 19, Weiner began working as a Dry Waller. He hung sheetrock for 5 years before complications with his back forced him to slow down. He was taught taping techniques and worked for several different companies as well as his own company over the next 19 years. He was proud to have worked on the Mall of America project, taping many of the hallways throughout the building. After many years of hard work, he retired from drywall work in 2008.
Weiner took a job at the Rush City Bakery, where he worked for 8 years. He worked for Gourmet Foods in Pine City for a while, before taking a job at Peterson Farm’s in Pine City, feeding calves. When he was diagnosed with cancer, Weiner was forced to quit working on the farm. After some treatment, he was able to return to work at the Mora Bakery for a short time.
Weiner loved the outdoors and hunting in the fall. He enjoyed riding his motorcycle and taking day trips with his friends. His greatest love was his son, Trever and he was so proud of his accomplishments. He will be dearly missed.
He is preceded in death by his parents, brothers, Robert and Elmer (Crystal) DePoppe, Debbie’s brother Michael, brother-in-law Larry, and nephew Jeremiah.
Weiner is survived by his beloved Debbie Kane, his son Trever Adam DePoppe, sisters, JoAnn DePoppe, and Dawn (Robert) Haas; Debbie’s children Amanda and Joshuah Vasquez and their families; brothers and sisters-in-law Steve (Kathy), Jeff (Sheri), Diana (Joe), and Denise (Ryan) and their families; several nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
