Darrell Justin Plaunty
June 29, 1957 – May 29, 2012
Darrell Justin Plaunty of Bend, Oregon, passed away at his home on May 29, 2012. He was 54.
A gathering of family and friends took place at the family home in Bend, Oregon.
Darrell was born June 29, 1957, in San Diego, Calif., to Dale and Sible (Robinson) Plaunty.
Darrell was a proud father to his three children and being a grandfather was one of the greatest joys of his life.
When he couldn’t spend time with his family, he could be found riding his motorcycle, playing cards, working on his property, or vacationing in the warm weather climates.
He will be missed more than he knows.
Darrell is survived by his wife, Teri (Dean) Plaunty of Bend, Oregon; daughters Tara (husband, Charles) Jensen of Springfield, Oregon, and Amber Plaunty of Eugene, Oregon; and his son Justin Plaunty of Springfield, Oregon.
Other survivors include his brother, Darrenn Plaunty of Azle, Texas; his sister Deborah Plaunty Barnes of Waverly, Virginia; and three grandsons, Jiro Plaunty, Elias Mirabal and Von Jensen.
