It is with regret that we inform you of the passing of former Alyeska employee Darryl G. Hammond on Aug. 24, 2023. Darryl joined Alyeska on May 11, 1993. He was a Pipeline Technician before transitioning to Maintenance and Linewide Supervisor roles, working primarily in the Fairbanks and PS 07 area.  Darryl was the go-to person when solutions were needed to problems of the most complex nature, and for his ability to visualize what TAPS needed to maintain and operate the pipeline well into the future. Darryl wrapped up his Alyeska career on December 26, 2010.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Darryl's passing. I knew Darryl at Alyeska, first meeting him at PS-6 many years ago, but only became good friends after we both left Alyeska and worked together on some consulting contracts.  His technical knowledge of electronics, control systems and maintenance management was amazing and he made a real mark for himself advising clients across the country. Darryl was passionate about his work and a gentleman in his modesty.  Darryl always talked about his love for family and and travel. Darryl was a true friend and loyal and loving family man.  I will certainly miss him.  Rest in Peace my friend.

I certainly agree with Dan Hisey's comments and can only add that I too worked closely with Darryl during the last several years of my time at Alyeska.  He was a can do individual who always got the job done and done well and was pleasant to work with along the way.

I first met Darryl in Fairbanks after the great migration from Anchorage in 1997.   We both worked in the pipeline maintenance organization at that time.   Eventually my wife and I became good friends with Darryl's family.   We just happened to be in New England visiting our son at the time of his funeral so we were able to attend in Rhode Island.  At the funeral I gave a talk about Darryl's years in Alaska and his work at Alyeska.    Also I read aloud Dan Hisey's post about Darryl which Lara Hammond really appreciated.  Darryl's death was a shock because it was sudden and unexpected.  He was working in a key management position for Tawgrass Energy in Colorado.  In everything Darryl did, he always gave his best, not the minimum, but the maximum.   He made important contributions to TAPS through enhancements to the pipeline data software system.   Darryl was a good friend.
