My condolences to the family. He was a great guy and will be missed by everyone especially his son Darren. Keeping you all in my prayers.
Darrel was very special to me. He was my cousin that I met and grew to love in my later life and had many memorable visits with him going over some geneology of our family. It was Darrel that gave me most of the information and let me copy pictures I would have never had to complete it. He was a very loving, honest man and he made a very big impression in my life. I will miss him.
