Darrell Uptegraft was born in Michigan, but lived in many parts of the country on wildlife refuges as his father was a refuge manager for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Darrell attended San Francisco State University and studied marine biology and chemistry. After exploring his interest in science, Darrell set his sights on law school and enrolled in the University of Puget Sound School of Law.

Darrell started clerking for Ryan Sells Uptegraft, Inc. P.S. in 1981 and continued to clerk for the firm while attending law school. Darrell joined Ryan Sells Uptegraft, Inc. P.S., as an associate attorney and became a full partner in the firm. He has had broad experience during his career, but focused his practice in the area of plaintiff's personal injury.

Darrell was an Eagle Member of WSAJ and passionately represented his clients.  Throughout his 31 years of practice, he represented personal injury clients and thoroughly enjoyed helping them.  He was a creative attorney and had an ability to connect with others.  His love for life was infectious and helped to create a firm atmosphere that was filled with fun, laughter, and cherished memories. 

In early 2014, Darrell was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease).  He was known among the Kitsap County legal community for his upbeat personality and generosity of spirit.  Darrell died on October 23, 2016, at the age of 61, his life cut short after a three-year battle with ALS.

Darrell is survived by his wife, Kacey; sister, Cynthia (Cindy) Uptegraft Barry; and nephews, Creighton and Kyle Barry of Vancouver, Washington.
