Darrin was born in Willmar, MN on June 12, 1971. He was the son of Marcia (Lovander) Ogdahl and Daniel Ogdahl. Darrin was baptized and confirmed at Faith Lutheran Church in Spicer. Darrin was a graduate of New London-Spicer High School where he was active in football, basketball, and baseball. He went on to college at Willmar Community College (Ridgewater) and Southwest State University (SMSU), where he was also active in baseball and made the All-Division team.

 

After college, Darrin married Carrie Johnson on July 30, 1994, in Willmar. They were blessed with four beautiful children: Caitlin, Dalton, Landon, and Brielle. Darrin’s career as a CPA was spent at CDS in Willmar, becoming a partner in 2008. Darrin was a member of Vinje Lutheran Church in Willmar, where he served as a treasurer and usher. Aside from his family, Darrin’s greatest love was baseball. He was a member of the New London-Spicer Twins for more than 25 years, starting as a bat boy at age 12. During his career with the Twins, his greatest highlight was the year he was drafted as a pitcher and threw back-to-back, one-hit shut outs. After retirement from the Twins, Darrin went on to play several tournaments at the Roy Hobbs World Series in the over 40 league.

 

Darrin was kind, giving, passionate, protective, and humble. One of Darrin’s best traits was his selflessness, most often putting the needs of others before his own healing. Alcoholism is only a part of his story. His disease was severe and all-consuming in the end, yet Darrin made numerous attempts to receive treatment and recover. His family knows best that Darrin tried and would have remained sober if not for the cunning, baffling, and powerful nature of his alcoholism. The truth behind every tragedy is that grace always arrives. Darrin would want his story to help other alcoholics that still suffer. If you are struggling, may you find help now.

 

Darrin is survived by his children, Caitlin Donna, Dalton Michael, Landon Royal and Brielle Hannah; and the love of his life, Carrie; his siblings, Michele (Paul Maynard) Revermann, Jason (Heather) Ogdahl and Greta (Matt) Hass. Also surviving Darrin, is his paternal grandmother, Dorothy Jones, as well as many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

 

Darrin was preceded in death by his mother, Marcia Ogdahl; his father, Daniel Ogdahl; maternal grandparents, Elroy and Violet Lovander; paternal grandfather, Ernest Ogdahl, and step grandfather, Kenneth Jones.
