Passed away peacefully at home on Sept. 19, 2012. Darryl fought cancer courageously like a champion that he was. Proud to be born in San Francisco on 4/8/46. He started his sheet metal career while still in his teens, working in SF for Standard Sheet Metal Union 104 before starting his own business Sebastiani Sheet Metal, working through out Sonoma County until his retirement in Dec 2011. Darryl loved his part time job selling artisan bread at the local farmers market and San Francisco Fillmore district, loved his wine, time spent with his dogs, his children and sitting under the old oak tree. He will be greatly missed. He leaves behind his loving wife Sindy of 25 years; sister Cherryl (David); Children Derric, Dominick and Ashley; grand children Hailey, Donovyn and Sam; faithful companions Prince and Duke; grand dogs Ceasar and Timber.
