My memories of my brother Darryl will be remembered always. We hadn't had the closest contact over the years, but it was really wonderful seeing him and Deb last summer. That time spent together and all the pictures taken will always be cherished.

I worked with Darryl at Ryken Tube for years and we became good friends. We played some guitar together, and hung out. I’m sorry to hear that he passed so soon. Condolences to his wife Debbie and son Lance

Darryl was my co-worker in the 90's at Ryken. A very good friend that helped me as a young guy coming up. Many laughs who taught me how to play cards the right way at lunch time. RIP Buddy.
