I will never forget when we were playing a baseball game on a lot in front of Darrell's home. One of Darrell's teammates fouled a pitched ball over the Chicken Wire Backstop Darrell had constructed. The catcher (Robert Long) on the team Jearld Price was on ran to catch the foul ball in which he had no chance to catch and ran plum through the Chicken Wire Backstop. Darrell then had a fit about our catcher tearing down the Backstop. We could not all help but laugh because it was actually made of Chicken Wire. This was just one of many nice memories when we were young and having fun. Darrell will certainly be missed.

Darrell was an exceptional man. I was fortunate enough to have worked for him in the late 90s. He was ethical, good humored and kind to everyone associated with him. He will be missed.
