Darell Golly, age 87, of Braham, passed away on Monday January 27, 2020 at Walker Methodist Levande in Cambridge MN.

Darell Steven Golly was born on October 31, 1932 to Harold Golly and Helen (Schwinger) Golly in Iowa Falls, Iowa. He lived there with his family until he was 12 when they moved to the farm in Braham MN. Darell joined the army when he was nineteen and served for part of his enlistment in Germany. He returned to the area and married Donna Olson on July 21, 1956. He then settled down to raise his growing family on a farm near Braham. Darell was a welder by trade and worked for General Safety in North Branch for many years building fire trucks. He then worked for Arrow Tank in Cambridge until his retirement.

Darell enjoyed hunting and fishing and spending time with his grandchildren. He will be deeply missed.
