Darryk Nicholas Martineau

September 18, 1983 ~ February 13, 2017 (age 33)

Darryk Nicholas Martineau, 33, of Duluth, passed away peacefully to be with his maker on Monday, February 13th, 2017. He was born September 18th, 1983 in Duluth, MN to Darryl "Dean" Martineau and Jennifer (Grangruth) Martineau.

Knowing Darryk "Bear", was to know a merciful and kind-hearted soul. Darryk loved to fish, be outdoors, and spend time playing football and basketball with his son, Dallyn. He was a very talented artist. His gifts to this world were the love he had for his son, family and friends, the many pictures he drew for the people he loved, the sweet words you'd find on notes and letters he gave you, and his willingness to help you out whenever he could. His purpose was to show others how to be compassionate, loving, and forgiving. Dallyn is going to miss the long walks and talks that he had with his Dad.  

He was preceded in death by his father, Darryl Dean Martineau; mother, Jennifer (Grangruth) Martineau; brothers, Daven Vincent Martineau and Joshua Isaac Greensky; paternal grandfather, Vincent Roy Martineau and paternal grandmother, Evelyn Olson; and maternal grandfather, Erland Arthur Grangruth; and multiple cousins gone too soon. 

Darryk is survived by his son, Dallyn Joshua Martineau; brother, Dane (Trisha) Martineau of Sawyer; sisters, Samantha (John) Pykkonen of Duluth and Chandra Greensky of Eagan, MN; nieces, Jeschelle Greensky (Duluth), and Laila Greensky (Sabin, MN); nephews, Damon Martineau (Sawyer) and Oliver Greensky (Sabin, MN); maternal grandmother, Mildred Coleman; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

A traditional wake will begin on Friday, February 17, 2017 at 7:00 PM and continue until the service on Saturday, February 18, 2017 at 10:30 AM in the Sawyer Center, Sawyer, MN.   Burial will be in the Sawyer Cemetery.
