Daryl was born in Stanton, NE, on December 18th, 1948 and grew up in Topeka, KS. The middle child of nine, he was known in his youth for his kindness, good nature, and impish sense of humor. After graduating from Weaubleau High School, Daryl sought adventure by joining the US Navy and served on the USS Sellers. During his service he toured the world.
After completing his service in the Navy, Daryl moved to Dubuque to be close to his parents. It was here, in 1980, that he met the love of his life, Gail Nichols while attending Grace Baptist Church and in 1982 they married. Their love increased in the following years with the addition of five children, four surviving. Daryl worked faithfully for many years at Napa Auto Parts, as well as Keystone Automotive, and was an outstanding employee.
Daryl will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. He was a faithful friend who would never turn down a request and could often be seen fixing a car on a cold night to help a
neighbor. Daryl was a loving husband whose humor, steadfastness, and selflessness can never be replaced; he will forever have the heart of his wife Gail. As a father, his love and devotion will never be matched and his children can pattern their life from his example.
Daryl accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior as a young man and lived his life in humble service. His servants heart was truly a testimony to all.
Daryl is survived by his wife, Gail Heinold, son and daughter-in-law David (Angela) Heinold, son Matthew Heinold, son and daughter-in-law Stephen (Misty) Heinold, and daughter
Genevieve Heinold. Grandchildren; Justice, David Jr., Brandon, Isaac,Tommy, Adrianna, Jacob, Landon, Cooper, Elena, and Talon. Brothers; Ronald (Reta) Heinold, James (Shirley) Poe, Merlin (Pam) Heinold, John (Andrea) Heinold. Sisters; Julia Colby, Jana Stewart, Jolynn (Gordon) Rhodes.
