Darrell was born October 9, 1934, to Annie and Paul Fellows in Amherst, Nebraska. Darrell graduated from Kearney High School and then went on to serve our Country enlisting in the United States Air Force as a Master Sergeant. Duty assignments in Texas, England, Ohio, Okinawa, Arizona, Thailand, and Alaska highlighted a 25 year career. Darrell's second career was with the Big Spring State Hospital, retiring from the maintenance department after 19 1/2 years. He married Londa Kaye Feaster on July 3, 1990 in Midland. Darrell enjoyed fishing and camping trips with family in earlier years. He later purchased land in Stanton and thoroughly enjoyed "building up" the "farm." He loved animals and had fun raising chickens and goats. Darrell was an early riser and would like to greet the sunrise at the farm. When not at the farm Darrell spent time on the computer working crossword puzzles and playing card games. He was an avid reader of westerns, fiction and non-fiction. Darrell celebrated his 24th year wedding anniversary July 3, with wife, Londa. They were happily married and she doted on him. He will be remembered as having a great sense of humor and will be sorely missed by family and friends.
