     Daryle William Hilbrands was born on December 15, 1931, in George, IA, the son of William and Lola (Spiegal) Hilbrands. He attended country school and later graduated from George High School in 1950. In 1952 he was drafted into the U.S. Army and went through basic training at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. On October 20th of that year, he left Camp Kilmore New Jersey by boat to northern Germany, then took a troop train to Bordeaux, France. He was stationed at Camp Bossac in France, serving as post engineer and head electrician. In January of 1954, he made his journey home ending with a slow boat ride to New Jersey. He was honorably discharged on February 20, 1954.

     On April 19, 1954, Daryle was united in marriage to Hermina Westra and resided in Matlock, IA, where they were members of the Matlock Reformed Church. They lived in Matlock for three years, where he worked at Farmers Coop Elevator and Gas Station delivering gas and later feed. In 1957, they moved to a farm and started farming. Upon the closing of the church, they transferred back to his home church, Lyon County First Presbyterian rural George, IA. As a member of the Matlock Reformed Church and Lyon Country First Presbyterian, Daryle was very active serving as a Deacon and Elder during his time there. In 1964, they moved to the Family Farm and in 2002 they retired from farming and moved into George, IA.

     Daryle’s hobbies included restoring old tractors (mostly International). He also enjoyed modifying tractors to participate in tractor-pulls. Numerous times he would love to pull the church float with one of his favorite tractors.
