Darrell and his family has been a part of my memories for many years. My dad and Darrell were friends (Gene Sparks). The Daughtrey's were customers of my dad's service station and I spent many days there. There are many memories but one that stands out in my mind, that included Darrell, was the day I caught on fire. Darrell was fixing a flat. I was standing there watching. The usual thing was to light the glue with a match to dry. The glue can was a little too close and it ignited. The glue and fire got on me and the first thing I did was run out the door. Darrell (and I think my dad) chased me and got the fire out. I was only blistered some on my legs, thanks to Darrell. I know he and daddy are having a sweet reunion. Daddy thought alot of Darrell and the Daughtrey family. Condolences to you all.

It is a privilege to have a few great friends in life and Darrell was and will remain one of these. What an extraordinary example of the kind of character we could all hope for. I have always admired his love of family, his caring way with all creatures, his dedication to work, and his limitless ability to find happiness in everyday life. Rest well dear and faithful friend - you have left quite a legacy. Blessings to your family and all those whose lives are better for having shared yours. We will remember your laugh, cherish the memories, and look forward to a time we will see you again. Surely there is country music in a cowboys' heaven so when I get there, we're going to the dance. I know you will be ready!

Wow, a man of great character who left a life time print on my heart. He was my first Softball Coach that actually believed in me. He took time to help me become the great player he groomed me to be. I will never forget him. I was on one team and couldn't hit a lick. He picked me up as a free agent "The Phillies", helped me discover something I was good at and grew to love. I am forever grateful for his discipline. I have never forgotten him or his family. I cried all the time when I messed up, he always made me get up, think about what I had done and then would show me a better way to become stronger on the inside and take everything else out on the field and leave it there. I pray for strength & healing for his family in this hour. He definitely was a great man with a big heart!
