Darrell Mack Wilcox

December 24, 1968 — June 5, 2023

Logan, UT

The final curtain closed on Darrell Mack Wilcox, age 54, on June 5, 2023 at home surrounded by family. He was born December 24, 1968 as the third of seven children to loving parents Norman and Joy Wilcox. He is preceded in death by his mother Joy. He is survived by his father Norman and his six siblings: Lauri, Teresa (Dwayne), Trent (Alicia), Kelton (Brandee), Joylinn (David), Dallas (Heidi), as well as his eleven nieces and eleven nephews.

Darrell was a light to everyone he encountered. Born and raised in Syracuse, Utah he attended Clearfield High School and graduated in 1987. Throughout his high school career he was cast in several plays such as: You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown-as Shroeder, Damn Yankees-as Sohovik, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat-as Zebulun. Along with musical theater, he sang with the Madrigals and was the seminary president his senior year.

After graduation, he was called to serve in the Haiti, Port-au-Prince Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from January 1988 to December 1989. Darrell’s mission had a major impact on his life. He deeply loved the people there and always had a desire to return to serve and care for those that he encountered. Once he returned home, he headed up to Logan and attended Utah State University.  He danced for the USU Ballroom Dance team and got to travel on tour to New York. He graduated from USU in 1994 with a Bachelor's Degree in French.

His working career mainly centered around his sixteen years as a Product Engineer at (the always rebranding company) ThermoFisher/GE/Cytiva. He enjoyed his time there and often talked about his coworkers and the impact that they had on his life. Another job that Darrell loved was working as the Macey’s Deli Manager. There, he created several family favorite recipes that are still being loved, shared, and requested. Darrell made genuine friends wherever he worked. Serving and loving his colleagues allowed him to enjoy his nine-to-five much more than he expected. 

Whether it was across the country or across the world, Darrell loved to travel. He sampled and loved chocolate from Austria and Switzerland, parasailed in Washington, and attended several shows on Broadway in New York.

As evidenced by his trips to Broadway, his passion for theater filled his life. He took the time to attend over fifty community and professional plays. His favorite play was Hugh Wheeler’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street because he loved the depth of character and the morals depicted.

His love of music is unparalleled by those around him. He enjoyed Broadway Show Tunes almost as much as he loved the live theater. He was one of the original members of the Bells at Temple Square where he rang for just under fifteen years. He played the piano and guitar and was known to always be listening to some sort of music. 

Darrell was also a successful hobbyist and entrepreneur lucky enough to combine the two. He ran his own business, Darrell Mack Photography. Even though it was a business he did it because he loved it. He used his skill to capture memories and moments for his family and friends. He made videos of each family vacation that have been treasured throughout the years and help remind us of what truly matters.

One way that Darrell shared his love for those around him was through baking. Darrell was consistently trying new recipes and tweaking old ones. With Darrell, a box cake was simply a starter recipe to a more complete masterpiece. He adored baking and eating chocolate cake and various breads. All of his friends and family were happy to help consume his creations. Darrell was willing to share his talents and his love of all things that are just the right amount of sweet.

He was a strong individual that battled through cancer, heart surgery, and hospital visits all while being a support to those around him.

Of everything that Darrell loved, the most important thing to him was people. Darrell was here for the individual and their struggles. He never stopped at the surface; he wasn’t one to judge people based on first impressions or his own ideals. He gave everyone the opportunity to be loved and cared about for who they were. Everyone loved him because he loved everyone. So many memories of Darrell are filled with examples of his compassion and kindness. He was a listener, a fixer, an advice-giver, brother, friend, son, uncle, mentor, co-worker, and Christ-like example. He will be sorely missed and fondly remembered by those that survived him.

We owe the extra time that we had with him to the wonderful medical staff at Logan Regional Hospital and The Mayo Clinic.
The world is a better place because of him. He will live on in our memory for “the show must go on.”
