Darrell was a big help to me when I started at Travelers Ins in 1963. I am so very sorry to learn of his passing and pray for his family and friends. RIP my friend !
My prayers are with the family during your time of need. May God give you peace that surpasses all understanding. Darrell was such a sweet and nice man. I knew him from State Farm.
Jean. Very sorry to hear of Darrell's passing. Reading his obituary, it seems he has lived a rewarding life. It was always a pleasure for him and me to chat at rehab about my Florida Gators and his Kentucky Wildcats. He's going to be greatly missed by all the guys at St. Vincents, but I'm sure not nearly as much as you and your children. My pray is that God will see you all through this trying time. Sincerely, Wayne Rowe
"Duhrell" was my very best friend at State Farm. We worked together as team mates and associates for 13 years. I still remember the day that he introduced himself to me in the State Farm Customer Care Center break room. We were great friends ever since that day. Darrell was a man of opinions, but a gentleman and true purveyor of help; he really did enjoy helping others in an unexpected time of need. Our work schedules were nearly opposite of one another, so when I did see Darrell in the mornings, I would ask how he was feeling, and Darrell would reply "better than I should for my age". Darrell never complained, only commented on the positives in his life. He dearly loved playing golf, and his various associations, especially the Rotary Club. I visited Darrell on the Monday before he passed. He seemed very normal, just dressed in PJ's. I am so glad that I got to visit with Darrell again but never expected it would be my last. I will truly miss my good friend "Duhrell". I know that his family will greatly miss his earthly presence, but their loving memories of Darrell will abide with them till they are united together once again. Until later my good friend.
Our encounter was brief but memorable.... A very courteous person and enjoyed your company at the SVCardio-rehab gym
Jean, Greg, Karen, Jodi, and Hope, we are heartbroken to learn that Darrell has passed away. He was such a generous family man and contributed so much to Jacksonville athletes. We always enjoyed being with him. Our hearts and prayers are with you during this sad time. Clint and Virginia Nelson
As I sit here reading this with tears running down my face...I still can't believe my Daddy is gone. He was one of the most wonderful men I could have ever had the honor to call my Father. He loved us unconditionally and was ALWAYS there when we needed him even during those times in life when you didn't even realize you needed him. He pushed my brother and I to be the best we could be. He never discouraged our hopes and dreams, but instead tried to help us make them come true. I have no regrets, I know my Daddy knew how much I loved him and how much I'm missing him right now. God granted us a sort of "warning sign" Christmas night allowing us time to be together with him for a few special weeks ~every day~ instead of just taking him from us suddenly, and I'm so thankful for every moment we had during his last days. I have so many great memories of my Dad that will live with me forever and even though my heart is breaking right now, I know I will see him again. I still have my strong Mother by my side and we will take care of her for him, *I PROMISE*. We're all going to make it though this...together, for him. I can feel the strength somehow from my Father pushing me to go on and be all that I can be even without him here. He can still see me and he will always be with me in my heart. I love you Darrell Beere, it was...is...and ~ALWAYS WILL BE~ a true privilege to be your daughter. Until we are united again my sweet Daddy, I will love and remember you. xoxo
