Daryl Stinchfield, a lifelong resident of Paso Robles, and 2017 Pioneer Day Marshal, changed his residency to heaven on Jan. 21, 2018. He was born in Paso Robles on July 8, 1940 to Buster and Nancy Stinchfield. He spent his entire 77 years in his beloved Paso Robles.
He graduated from Paso Robles High School in 1958. He then worked with his dad in the upholstery business until 1970, when he went to work for Boatman’s Furniture Center. He retired after 20 years and then began his third career doing custom disking and grading work.
He completed a triathlon in 1990 at the age of 50 and continued to bike regularly into his 70s.
Daryl was a lifelong member of Live Oak Christian Church where he volunteered extensively in many ways. He also volunteered within the community: Pioneer Museum, Senior Nutrition, Salvation Army, Cemetery board member, and the tractor barn.
He and his wife Charlotte enjoyed traveling the United States in their fifth-wheel for about ten years. They were also able to travel to Switzerland and Italy with best friends, the Barlogios.
Daryl is preceded in death by his father Buster, mother Nancy, brother Larry, and sister Marlene. He is survived by Charlotte, his wife of 55 years; daughters Cynthia and Lori, five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
