It was with great sorrow to hear just recently in June of Darryl's funeral back in April Darryl was a supplier and mentor to our company for over 20 years and thru many meetings, field day catch ups, he was just a great bloke to be involved with. His genuine knowledge and experience was greatly sort out by myself and our team at ABH. We will miss that big grin !! and laughter that we shared on so many occasions. He will be always remembered by myself as one of our top suppliers and also a true Aussie gentleman To Corinn, from both Jill and myself, we share your grief but must cherish all those happy times we had together

Darryl - you positively affected a lot of people and it was always a pleasure doing business with you.

Vale Darryl William Hine. It’s with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to one of the greatest men I have had the pleasure of knowing. I never grew up with a grandfather, but Darryl you more than filled this role for me. You were so much more than an uncle. You were a mentor, a role model and a best mate to me. It’s been an honour to take on your business and make your life’s work become what will be my life’s work. I’m so grateful for the time we were able to spend together over the last 3 years particularly the last 7 weeks where I was able to get some of your fantastic stories on a podcast, so your legacy can live on through the stories you could tell with unmatched vigour. I’m proud to have called you a best mate and I’m going to miss you more than I can put into words. Love you mate

Many of the tributes recall Darryl's story telling ability, I can vouch for that as I was with him in the foyer of Woollies. He started the story with me the only audience by the time he finished and refined the story of burying his fathers hipbone which they had found in a glass jar, there were at least twenty people gathered, Darryl's father had left instructions that he wanted to be buried on the farm. The law forbade his wish. A great friend and neighbour, I only wish I had taken the time to hear more of his stories

We always thought of Darryl as our Uncle. He was always so warm and cheerful and happy to talk about anything. He was so kind and gentle. Nine years ago when our family was visiting Corinn and Darryl in Albany, we decided the best way to spend New Years Eve would be to go for a hike... 6 hours later and with no water left, we made it back to the car and Darryl (the oldest in the group) still had a grin on his face and energy left to drive us home. Needless to say we fell asleep WAY before midnight. We will miss him dearly and cherish the photos and memories. Sending lots of love and hugs, Sarah and Jonathon

Dear Corinn. Darryl was an unforgettable character. Not only was he intelligent, talented and funny, but he also singlehandedly forced me to abandon my long-held “farmer stereotype”. He didn’t fit the mould I’d made, so I got rid of it. I am a better person for having known him and I am sure many others are too.

A great friend and neighbour for many years, Darryl will of course be remembered for his amazing story telling capabilities. Always cheerful and up for a chat, we have many fond memories of dinners and laughter. Such a sad loss to all who knew Darryl. He will always be remembered with a smile on his face and on ours. Sincere sympathy to Corinn and the Hine family.

For Darryl, who liked to tell a story: Yoda and Buddha watched the eternal flame rise and fall. “Wit he is,” said Yoda “Wit is he,” Buddha replied “Life of the party he is,” said Yoda “Party to life is he,” Buddha replied “Passed he has,” said Yoda “Passed by here on his journey,” Buddha replied, and yet they were agreed, as they turned to face the path of enlightenment and walked with a chuckle into the dusk. Our love and thoughts go out to Corinn and the Hine family on Darryl’s passing. I don’t think I’ll ever forget one of my early introductions to his talent when I watched him play Sylvester to Corinn’s Tweety Pie in the Wellstead Hall. Play on Darryl.

Our sincere condolences Corrinn, on the passing of your beloved Darryl. We so often saw you walking together and always enjoyed our neighbourhood chats. We will miss Darryl's twinkling eyes and cheeky smile. His memory will stay with us.

It's more than 30 years since I last saw Daryl, when he and Ca came to my wedding in Jamaica. But it feels like yesterday and when I look at Daryl in this photo he doesn't look a stitch older, with that same happy face and I can hear that chuckle. Such a nice, happy, kind guy. I lost my dear husband 18 months ago; he too was given just a few weeks to live, so I know sadly, only too well just how devastating this is for you all. Too young, too fast, too early. My greatest sympathy and love. My thoughts are with you all. With love, Janie

We have lost a lovely man who had a huge impact on my life. There will always be a special place in my heart for Darryl. Stewart, your going to do a great job at Direct Seeding. We are all cheering for you. I’m glad I was apart of the Direct Seeding Family over the years. Love to Corrin and all the Direct seeding family and friends Lisa

Darryl, we are going to miss your fabulous storytelling, your wonderful sense of humour, your big heart, your big laugh. You were and always will be our best man. Love to Corinn and all the family.
April 2, 2020 9:31 pm
Another coffee story, I can’t remember how or why this guy was talking but it was fairly calm chit chat and he proceed to tell us that he had once introduced his wife as his root, well Darryl’s eyes bulged in his head and he nearly spat his coffee out and so did the rest of us. Poor Darryl he came and apologised to Bree and I later. We still get a laugh today remembering Darryl’s face.
April 2, 2020 9:28 pm
We were having coffee one day and we hear Lorne say “Fire Darryl Fire” in Lorne’s calm deep voice. With that we all jump up and start running buckets of water from the tank into the shed. It didn’t do too much damage. The scorch marked are still there today. When we all went back to finish our cuppa there was Darryl’s coffee sitting right in the middle of the floor, we all had been jumping over it the whole time we were running buckets of water back and forth. Darryl would bring this story up and shake his head about how calm Lorne said “Fire Darryl Fire” They are probably sitting up the reminiscing the same story
April 2, 2020 9:25 pm
Remember the phone service at the shed. If it was windy, cloudy, rainy or you just stood the wrong way you didn’t get service. The trusty old black flip phone, When it rang, who ever was closest answered the phone and then yelled Darryl/ Jacki it’s for you. Doing runs to town in the Mavrick I think the last trip I did in the old girl she would have been overloaded as I didn’t have much steering coming home after stopping and picking up steel. My only stop was at Many Peaks to check that the gaffa tape was still holding the cab together. When u worked at the shed you soon knew how everyone took their tea or coffee. Black for Darryl , milk first then hot water coffee for a few, Gary had coco. As long as u got the first one right you would be ok.
April 2, 2020 9:21 pm
Over the last couple of days since hearing of Darryl’s passing I have been thinking about all the people who worked down at the direct seeding shed. For a lot of us, working for Darryl was our first real job. Working with people other than family, filling out time sheets and getting paid. I remember thinking you actually get paid to do this stuff. It’s like helping dad in his shed but Debbie pays us. Working at the shed you got to have a go at everything. Drilling, painting/dipping, packing orders, assembling hubs on disks, pressing bearing in and out, sanding bars, putting discs on openers, and assembling a bar with its coulters openers packers & wheels all assembled and ready to go. There wouldn’t be many family’s in the Wellstead area that didn’t have someone work for Darryl at some point.

To Corinn and family, We are saddened to hear of Darryl leaving this world way too soon. Such a beautiful man with an infectious laugh, someone who you instantly became friends with and loved. We are forever greatful to Darryl for his and your help Corinn when we lost Lorne. Hopefully they are having a catch up and Lorne is still in the drivers seat! Corinn remember the wonderful times and life with Darryl, that handsome man who swept you off your feet. With much love Brian Lynda and family.

What a gentleman! Darryl always had a funny story to share. He always had a listening ear or a helpful solution to a problem. Nothing was ever too much trouble. He was an easy-going caring man, with a beautifully soft nature. Thankyou for being a wonderful boss but more importantly a wonderful friend. A genuinely big heart with a mischievous streak, always making myself and others laugh. I thoroughly enjoyed being around you. You always brightened the day. Darryl loved his family and friends and was always up for an adventure, whether it was a road trip with the boys or overseas with his beautiful darling. You were certainly loved by all ! Darryl loved his girl's, Corinn and Hazel and was content at home by the fire, looking out the window, when we last spoke. You shall be missed greatly , loved deeply and always remembered. P.s I won't forget the 12 goldfish, the 3 boronias and the banana trees Teresa, Duanne Robinson and family

The sun comes up and the sun goes down The hands on the clock keep a-going' 'round I just get up and it's time to lay down Life gets tee-jus, don't it, hmm Such a gentle man and an entertaining character. His recital of " Life Gets Tee-Jus , Don't It " over 35 years ago is a treasured memory. Condolences to Corrin and the Hine family. Love from Penny and Mick

Our heartfelt condolences to Corinn and all the family on the passing of our dear friend Darryl. Albany and the Great Southern farming community has lost one of its finest citizens. He was a warm and engaging individual, generous of spirit and with a wonderful knack of yarn spinning and truth telling. He will be sorely missed at those Saturday morning coffee chats. Being an astute judge of character, Darryl choose a wonderful life partner, not withstanding he and Corinn grew up on different continents and spoke a different dialect. Together they made a dynamic team. And he loved his dogs Maggie, Pepper and Hazel and they adored him. As the teacher and humourist Leo Rosten said, “The purpose of life is to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have it make some difference that we have lived at all”. Darryl certainly achieved that in spades. We’ll miss you buddy - God bless. Wayne, Karen & family

Daryl was a person who you were always happy to be around and will always be a champion in our eyes. Both Darryl and Corinn have embraced Stewart into their business and our daughter Chantelle into their lives. Hazel is considered our other grand puppy. So we will be forever grateful for their kindness and love shown to our combined families. Our sincere condolences go out to Hine, MacTaggart and other connected family members, Direct Seeding Team, Farming families, and local Albany crew on the loss of this wonderful man. Those we love can never be more than a thought away. Even though death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.

There are no words to express our gratitude for a life shared. Although Darryl was a Hine this definition of “Hines” was found in an urban dictionary and thought it was appropriate. To be a champion, lead, grow build, see potential, fill empty buckets, teach. Usually a person with great independence and an ability to see the big picture, read signs others miss. Ultra observant, Uber generous.#champion.

Traveling in Alaska and Canada with Darryl was as fun, as when he was able to visit here in Seattle. I recall well when we drove across the border from Alaska into Canada it was a Friday. We were both wearing Red as an honor to soldiers defending our countries. Because we were both in the same car and wearing red, border control must have thought we were weird and had us parked for about an hour while they went through the car. It was fun watching many other cars stream through.. I wish we could do it again...

In the few short years, we have known Darryl we have come to appreciate the depth of knowledge and experience he had with both Farming and Engineering and the vision he had to put them together for the benefit of the farming industry in Australia. The all to short time we spent together we saw how so well respected he was by his team and those around him and I am sure the solid foundations he laid will see them through this difficult time and prosper in the future. What a great Guy he will be sadly missed. Condolences to all and deepest sympathy especially to Corinin, Stewart and Chantel and all at the works.

Our condolences to Corinn and the Hine family We have fond Memory's of Darryl in the many shows that Joan produced at Wellstead and the humour that Darryl conveyed to the audience on occasions. Darryl was a good farmer with innovative ideas keeping up with the rapid changes occuring during our lifetime, he really needs to be remembered for the contribution made to No-till movement importing machinery from Canada and the US that was suitable for Australian conditions. Joan and I will miss the friendship that grew over our years at Wellstead which continued following our moves from the district.

Dear Corinn and the Hine family So sorry for your loss. We loved Darryl and his optomistic view on life, no challenge too difficult, no problem so bad that it couldn't be met with a joke and yet deeply thoughtful of others and life, he will be deeply missed. Love from Andrew

I cannot express how sad we feel about losing our Aussie Mate, a true Gentleman and Mentor. His friendship has meant so much to us for so long. Dan Larson and I were reminiscing this morning about all the times we met up with Darryl and all of the fun stories we would share whenever we got together. The first time I flew “down under” was nearly 20 years ago and my wife came with me. We found a way to get together wherever our travels took us – Albany, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane in AU, Regina and Winnipeg (and of course fishing in Lac Du Bonnet) in Canada, Mesa and Phoenix Arizona, Fargo and Wahpeton, ND and at our lake home in Minnesota. Our thoughts and prayers are with Corinn, Stewart and the entire Hine family.

Darryl was a great farmer, a great machinery business owner & a fabulous member of our community. Darryl was always very kind & inclusive. I remember in my teenage years hanging out with Darryl & being part of the gangs that would meet in the truck bays with bon- fires chatting away late into the night. I very much appreciated his guidance & watchful care over me. Darryl was famous for his story telling & many of us have fond memories of his performances in the local theatrical shows. We all loved it when Darryl got married to Corinn & they had us rolling around with laughter with their tandem musical comedy items!!!! We were thrilled that Darryl had found a fabulous partner to share his life with the added bonus of keeping us entertained - thankyou. Our hearts go out to Corinn, Hazel & all the Hine family for the loss of this story telling, humorous, fun loving gentleman. The world has lost someone who kept us connected & laughing. Lots of Love Sylvia xoxox

The coffee boys on a saturday morning for such a long time are sure going to miss your anecdotes and stories Darryl. You will linger long in my memory. A gentleman of our world. Our friend has passed away in these troubled times but he leaves us with nothing but fondness and pride to have known such a good bloke. When this Corona thing is over we will gather again in your memory. Love and peace Corinne.

Darryl was a very good employer, a very good friend and a personal tour guide without equal, through Arizona, Nevada and California. His stories were the stuff of legends, although he was rarely allowed to tell one without countless interruptions. He may no longer be a part of our lives in person, but the memories we cherish and the impact of his friendship will endure in our lives. Corinn, we will be with you in thought and prayer during the days ahead.
March 31, 2020 10:14 pm
My deepest sympathy in the loss of your beloved...your husband, your brother, your friend, your uncle. He went too soon.
March 31, 2020 7:53 pm
One of a kind such a good bloke in every which way and so unique, a life so well lived but should have been longer. Love to Corinne and all the Hine families our thoughts are with you all and so sad we cannot be with you to celebrate Darryl’s life. Love from Robert and Carolyn and family. Xo
