My sincere condolences. Darrell graduated with me in 1977. Darrell was great and friended me in a turbulent and trying time.

One piece of Darrell's humor I remember:

First God made the black man but he overcooked and burned him. Then God made the white man. God didn't cook him enough though. Then God made the American Indian. God cooked the American Indian 'juuussst right'

I will remember Darrell as the shy, caring seventh grader I taught when he was at Beaver Creek school! I cherish the only year I taught and he was one of my " three boys" RIP Darrell.!!

My boys and only knew Darrell through our lease agreement with him. He was a most impressionable fellow, polite, agreeable and most willing to go out of his way to help us. He did this even though it wasn't part of our lease agreement. We would like to extend to Ramona and his family heartfelt condolences. We offer our prayers for your comfort and understanding in this most difficult time.
