In Memory of Daryl Lanphere


July 11, 1951 - March 4, 2019

Daryl (Moose) Harley Lanphere, 67, of Birchwood, formerly of Eau Claire, WI passed away with family by his side, Monday, March 04, 2019 at Marshfield Medical Center – Rice Lake.

Daryl was born on July 11, 1951 to Kenneth and Ione (Goss) Lanphere in Eau Claire, WI. Anyone who knew him, knew that he enjoyed listening and singing to country music – the life of the party. He loved watching Packer games, hunting and fishing and was an excellent cook and baker, especially his fish-fry. He deeply loved his eternal love and wife and all their years together. Many of his favorite days were spent on the deck with his dog Jade, family and friends. He had a heart of gold, always willing to give the shirt off his back to anyone and will be in our hearts and missed forevermore.

Kemp; brother-in-law, Jerry Tripp, a sister-in-law, Julie Lanphere; and a niece, Jessie Riedell.
