November 13, 1954 — September 27, 2023
Darrell Edward Ocheskey, 68, passed away on September 27, 2023 at his home. He was born on November 13, 1954 in Ames, Iowa to Edward and Virginia (Cramer) Ocheskey.
Darrell worked for Mid Central Plastics for 23 years as a laborer. Those who were fortunate enough to have met Darrell knew him as a passionate hippy who was unapologetically vulgar and crass; yet would give you the shirt off his back. This gentle giant loved his dogs, cats and his family – in that order.
Darrell is survived by his loving wife, Diana; daughter, Tasara (Chet) Hamilton; son, Brian (Anita) Ocheskey; brother, Jerry (Jane) Ocheskey; sisters, Kay Kimberly and Mary Knickerbocker. He was loving PoPo to Max, Evan, Autumn and Patrick and uncle Fuzzy to many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and sister Karen Holland.
The family will be honoring Darrell’s life with a casual gathering – (suspenders optional) – on Sunday, October 8, 2023 from
2:00 -5:00 pm at Vittoria Lodge, 7200 NW 2nd Ave., Ankeny, Iowa
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be directed to the ARL, 5452 NE 22nd Street, Des Moines, Iowa 50313 in loving memory of Darrell.
