Darrell retired from Beech Aircraft as a supervisor in 2001, after 36 years of service. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, playing cards, and people watching at the casino. Darrell was a fun-loving guy. He never met a stranger and was quite the storyteller. He put his family first and they found his "Darrelisms" funny and memorable. Darrell was an avid WSU Shocker Basketball and KC Chiefs Football fan. One of his favorite childhood memories was spending time with his uncles whom were all close in age. He had many stories of his adventures with his dad hunting, fishing, and trapping at Bee Creek.
