Darrell was a class act and a very nice person, what a sad thing to lose someone like him. What a horrible thing. Alot of people will miss him.

To the Akerfelds family. Many times over the years I have bragged to people about your family and how lucky I was to grow up with and be around such an athletic family. I just told someone the other day that I took batting practice from a major league pitcher. I still talk about what a great coach Abes was. we all knew we were welcome at the Akerfelds house any time. I am very sorry for your loss. God bless all of you.
Darrel touched so many lives and will be forever remembered. RIP.
To Abe, Gloria, Danny and Duane, Darrel was an inspiration to everyone I ever seen him around. He was always so polite and respectful no matter who they were, or what they did. You pushed me in every aspect of my life. Whether it was the special times we competed against each other, or we're teammates in college. You were a Great Man Ak and it hurts that you are gone. God has taken a special child to Heaven with him!
Certainly this is a difficult time,my condolences,may you draw strength and courage from each other, may you have peace that comes from above.

I attended Columbine HS with Darrel and his brothers, I will never forget when myself and a friend were being harassed in the cafeteria by two girls and he came to our rescue and told the girls to back off and he walked us to the counselors office. We were just freshman and he was the popular athletic senior, he was our hero that day! My condolences go out to the Ackerfelds family!
