Darrel Alvin Friedli

Friday, February 2, 2024

Darrel Alvin Friedli, 69, Nevada, MO, was born on October 20, 1954, in Kansas City, MO to Dewyne and Alice Louise (Schlup) Friedli. He passed from this life on Tuesday, January 30, 2024. On November 5, 2017, he married the love of his life, Shirley Ann Brown, who survives of the home.

     Darrel attended school in the Grandview, Kansas City area until the 1st grade. He then moved to the Vernon County area in 1961 where he attended school in the Sheldon and Walker school districts. In his young adult years, Darrel worked several part time jobs which included construction work. After working part time, he went to work for Fram in Nevada where he was employed for over 20 years until the plant closed. Before fully retiring, he also worked for the City of Nevada, Parks and Recreation.

     Darrel loved many things including hunting and fishing. However, the guitar was his true passion and could make it "talk". Many family get-togethers were spent listening to him play. He especially enjoyed playing when some of his brothers and sons would join in. Although he acted and sounded tough on the outside, he had a soft side for family. He will be missed by many family and friends.

     In addition to his wife Shirley, he is survived by his children, Darrel Bledsoe, Mary Louise Rawlings, Christine Messner, Sandy Jimmerson, Lonnie Friedli, Lorne Brown, Heath Brown, and Wyatt Brown; 14 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren; siblings, Jim Friedli, Steve Friedli, Warren Friedli, Rick Friedli, Janelle Genetti, Sharon Hauf, Bob Friedli, and Doris Micklich; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, and an infant sister, Anna Marie Friedli.

     Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, February 5, 2024 at Ferry Funeral Home in Nevada with Pastor Lorne Brown officiating. Interment will follow in Green Lawn Cemetery in Schell City. Friends may call now and until the hour of service at the funeral home.
