The Smithton R-VI School Community was saddened to hear of the loss of our dear friend and
longtime coach Mr. Darrell Sypes. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. Darrell was a member of our school community for 17 years and left an impact on almost two
decades of Smithton athletes as a coach for basketball and track and a fan of all. He will be
dearly missed and forever remembered as a “True Tiger” of the Smithton R-VI School District.
Please watch for ways to commemorate Darrell’s dedication to Smithton in the near future.
There will be additional grief counseling services available during the school day for students in need and we encourage everyone to seek help if needed.
