Darryl Yerrick graduated from Western Michigan University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, but soon decided his interest was really in computers. He received an Associate’s Degree in Computer Science from KVCC and joined Meijer’s Information Technology team.
Darryl has always enjoyed time with his animals which started when he hunted with his family’s cocker spaniel as a teen. He was an avid distance rider with his horse, Amelia, and was an original board member of the Yankee Springs Trail Riders Association. He has served as the president of that organization, and is currently president of the board for the Southern Michigan Weimaraner Club. Darryl’s interest in being a partner in The Dog Dive is directly related to his beloved Weimaraner, Adalmar. Adalmar received extensive injuries from an accident at 7 months old and had major surgery in MSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine and went through rehabilitation to learn to walk again. His veterinary suggested water work to help him stay fit in a non-weight bearing environment to help ward off future arthritis. With the closest year around swim facility being 3 hours away, Darryl was determined to help establish a facility in Southwest Michigan. Darryl is The Dog Dive’s facility manager and earned his national credentials as a Certified Pool Operator through The National Swimming Pool Foundation to assure we have the highest water standards at all times.
