Darwin Whitfield grew up on a family farm that was established in 1908. He married Michele in 1982 and they became fourth generation grain and cattle farmers. They were blessed with a daughter and son, and now four grandchildren who they follow around to hockey and dance. A long-time hockey fan, Darwin has spent many hours coaching and refereeing over the years and can still be found on the ice. Darwin’s commitment to his family and community has always been strong.
Darwin has served on many boards and organizations in the area such as: Kinsmen Club of Coleville, Coleville Recreation, Regional Medical Arts Clinic, Western Regional Landfill, Regional and West Central Economics Development, Kindersley Regional Airport, and Kindersley Health and Wellness Foundation.
Darwin currently serves as the reeve of the rural municipality of Oakdale, a role he had held for 11 years. He was elected director of Division 6 at the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities Annual Convention 2019.
