Darrell I will miss you so very much. Not only were you my best friend, but you were my "big brother" I will always have an emptiness in my heart, but knowing I will one day see you again fills it with hope and joy. I love you and I love your family as my own. Rest in peace brother, your struggles are over.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all
I was very sorry to learn Darrell is no longer with us. My condolences to his family.
Darrell and I lost touch when he left to join the military. We had worked closely together at Conrail for several years, in Fortville, Indiana (as Signal Maintainers). Both he and his father were a pleasure to work with. I wish we hadn’t lost contact. RIP Hippie!

There is so much to say! Darrell was a one of a kind! All heart.
We were the best of friends. And later, we were "family".
Some of my favorite memories are the ones that ended with him saying, "STOP! My cheeks hurt!" We could laugh and laugh until we just could not laugh anymore!
Darrell- Thank you for all the good times. Thank you for all the laughter. And thank you for loving my family. My kids lives have forever been changed by having you in our hearts and in our lives.
Rest peacefully, my friend. Please help those of us here remember the good times.
