Time passes quickly, but memories never fade. My husband met Darrell in 2000, when he went to work for Superior in Conover. They became quick friends and coworkers. They not only drove trucks, but did construction for the company. They even did a 6 month stint with Fed Ex driving all over the United States as team drivers. In 2013, they both moved on to B and B Transport continuing their friendship and careers. They rode together on their harleys and did several bike rallys as well. Darrell was always a kind soul and treated us like family. We mourn his loss and pray for his mother, children, and grandchildren. He is looking down and smiling with pride for all those who have known and loved him. Godspeed Darrell till we meet again.

Words can’t describe just how great of a guy, friend, co worker he was. Great father to his kids and animals. I’ve talked with Darell almost every day for the past 5years I’ve known him. We hit it off like best buds since day one. We road Harley’s together and worked together. Just last summer he got a boat and we all took it out a few times and I remembered just how relaxed he was when he was floating around in his boat. He loved life and the great outdoors. He was one of the few I could call for advise and had great wisdom. I will never forget him and my heart goes out to him and his family.

You were my first cousin and our last visit was two years ago in March. A nice visit catching up with one another and I'll always remember our conversation. We spoke about how family should keep in touch and that it was sad that people were so wrapped up in life that we just don't take time to visit. I know you are with our Lord and take comfort in knowing that. Rest in peace cousin and we will visit again one day in heaven. Sending love to Aunt Carrie and rest of your family.

Our family will miss you forever, Nephew! You gave your life to save someone who pulled out in front of your truck, that was the kind of person you were. My sister Carrie loved you with all her heart! You were her only child and she will never get over losing Darrell. He is in Heaven and in God's presence, Rip.

I dont know Darrell, but my son is a first year OTR truck driver. It's taken me a year to get comfortable with my son being a trucker.I'm so sad for your whole family's loss. This has bothered me since the moment I heard on the news how he lost his life to spare a vehicle that pulled out in front of him..It shows by all the comments from people how the public highly respects the job of professional drivers. Praying for God to comfort everyone and especially Darrell's mother.....from all these wonderful comments its obvious he has a very good Mother. Much love and respect to you all...I can see Darrell was a fine man...there will be brighter days ahead in time. .

I'm so proud of my father-in-law ! They just don't make them like him anymore.
One man one wife for life, a true man's man! GOD First , Family,Pets and then maybe he just might get in the back of the of line of life, for he always gave all with a smile and a praise to our JESUS.
My greatest memories are to many to list .
He love me as if he raise me up all our lives.
With heavy heart i will be looking up and thank JESUS for the time that we had together what a Gift. I can only hope i could be the half the man he was. SEE YOU SOON, POPS! NO MORE PAIN AND ALL TO GAIN , UNTIL WE RIDE AGAIN ! WE LOVE AND MISS YOU DAD.
