Darrel Dean Stoller, 84, a longtime Raymond resident died Friday, October 6, 2023 at home. He was born March 2, 1939 in White Salmon, Washington to Meredith and Gilbert Stoller. 

He was a 1957 graduate of Trout Lake High School, where he met Joyce Guler. They married December 26th, 1959, the day after Christmas at the Trout Lake Presbyterian Church.

Darrel worked for both his father and father-in-law in the woods through the summers while attending Clark College.

Time was also well spent with his friends over morning coffee.
