Darrin Goettig was born August 31, 1973 in St. Peter, Minnesota to Darold and Rosella (Hoffman) Goettig.  He attended Tracy Area High School.  On June 17, 1999 he married Sara Platcek in Brookings, SD.  They were blessed with two sons, Austin and Coltyn.  They later divorced.  Darrin worked as a boiler operator, did maintenance work at Homera Homes, Marshall Truss, Schwan’s, and was currently working at Kraft Foods in New Ulm.  He was outstanding in his field and truly loved by his coworkers.  Outside of work, Darrin was passionate about grilling and smoking meats.  If it could go on the grates, it could be smoked or grilled.  His favorite pastimes were Wind Therapy on his ’89 V-Max motorcycle.  Darrin loved nothing more than spending time with his sons.  He will be dearly missed.
