Daryle and his wife, Joyce, have lived in Ames for 42 years. They have two grown sons, married and each with two children. Daryle resigned from Danfoss after working there for 38 years. He has served on the United Way of Story County and Friendship Ark Homes boards of directors, is a past president of Ames Morning Rotary, and active in committees at Bethesda Lutheran Church.
Daryle served a four-year term on Ames City Council. The experience opened his eyes to what makes this community tick and made him aware of needs to be filled in order to make Ames and Story County a better place to live and work. Daryle is a graduate of Leadership Ames (year 14) and enjoys being active in the community. While awarding grants to non-profits is rewarding, it is SCCF’s role in helping non-profits establish and grow endowments to ensure their future health that inspires him.
