Thirty four years ago I married into the Riffe family and Daryl became my
Brother-in-law. But through the years, I began to love Daryl as a Brother. He was a hard working man, an honest man, a man I respected, for he was true to himself and those who knew him. I will miss him.

I am so sorry to find out that Daryl has passed. He was one of the first people I met when I moved to Madison Hgts. I loved our conversations and his willingness to help when I ran into problems in my new home. I will miss him.

Was. So. Happy to hear Bobby's voice on the phone Tuesday but had no idea of the news about Daryl until finally gently told me. Was very sad and sorry for all of the family. My ties were from childhood up until our ways parted and all went separate ways. After that we kept in touch long distance as best you can. My brother was married to their Mom. We loved her and her children. Fun fun. Daryl' was definitely a self made individual with dedication to his world. A beautiful loving God fearing person with a great family and friend followers. God Rest his soul and may he be at peace in his Heavenly home.
