Not sure what to say?

darrell was a great guy loved to talk will sure miss him

Darrell was not only our brother-in-law but a dear and wonderful friend. We will always remember great times at Fallen Leaf Lake and Christmas at Grammie and Grampa’s house in Vacaville. He was full of fun and laughter with that huge smile and a twinkle in his eyes! Special friends are never forgotten...gone from our sight, but never from our hearts ♥

My dad was an amazing person and I miss him dearly.

RIP Darrell, I will always remember your humor and your kindness! I’m forever grateful that you loved my brother as your own! You will be missed. ❤

What I remember about Darrell is his support to his girls back in the days of school and sports. His good looks and great smile through out his life. His sense of humor. The time he spent as a roommate with my father. They were quite a pair. May he ride on his girls shoulders throughout the rest of their life’s.

Meredith and Family
So sorry to here about Darrell's passing. He was always such a friendly guy with a ready smile. I will never forget him and his Jeepster when you first moved to Richvale.

I will always remember fondly and with gratitude that he welcomed into his home when I spent a Summer and Fall there with Rebecca. He was a very kind and patient man. I’m sending my most heartfelt condolences to his family. I hope the memories you have of him bring you some measure of comfort.

Embrace your memories and keep them safe in your heart. May he rest in peace

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
