Darrel Burnett

Darrel is one of the rocks of the Foundation. He has been friends of our family for over 35 years and was an important person in Brian’s life.

He had the impossible task of presenting his eulogy. In it, he pledged “In your name and memory, we, we all will accomplish great things” and has been an inspiration to us from that day forward.

Darrel served on our scholarship selection committee when we first established the Foundation in 1992 and now serves on our Advisory Board and Board of Directors. He also received the Brian LaViolette Spirit Award in 2014

He has been our Master of Ceremonies for all of our special events and he has helped us with copy editing and countless last-minute details when we have needed him. 

Darrel is the Chief Executive Officer of KSI International, Inc. He and his wife Kelly live in Milton, Wisconsin
