    Met Darrel thru an old girlfriend of his (Betty) & we became friends almost immediately. He always carried a smile & could make you laugh for no reason at all. We shared a lot of fun times out in East Lansing when he lived out here and he became a really good friend to my brother in law Steve Murray who has since passed as well. I know they are happy to be together again & u will truly be missed my friend.

    I haven’t seen Darrel in years but remember the fond memories from my childhood growing up down the street from him. Virginia babysat a bunch of the neighborhood kids and living in the “country” was a great place to be. Also, he and I were in a group of kids that hung around together in high school. I saw his mother Virginia several years ago and we reminisced about the “good old days”. I’m so sorry to hear about his passing. May God bless him.
