To Debbie and the boys- I have known Darrell for a lot of years. He was one of the best guys I have ever known. He was a special neighbor and had a smile on his face even if it was a bad day. He is not hurting any more
 and I will miss him a lot. Bill Harris
Debbie, Darrell was a special person to me. I will miss talking to him. He always remembered me when he had extra garden stuff.He even remembered I liked to have the larger zucchini to make cookies with. He will be missed. Delaine Harris.

We are so sorry to hear of Darrel's passing.  We lived next door to Darrel and Deb for about 14 years. He was a great neighbor and friend! May God bless you and your family Debbie!

I may have been Darrell's favorite or at least he always made me feel that way! I have been Deb's visiting teacher for many years and each month when I came to visit Deb, he would always come around the corner to say hi. During gardening months, he always had his cherry tomatoes in a bag to give us. Darrell's tomatoes where heavenly, I could never grow them like Darrell's. I know he babied those tomatoes with lots of love. Darrell was always very handy, making fun projects. I was honored to get one of those projects. I would plant my plants in my planter always thinking about Darrell and now it will hold a very special place in my heart. This last summer, I didn't get to see Darrell or Deb due to the Covid so i missed my tomatoes!  I feel blessed I got to see him a few weeks ago at Winco. I recognized him right away with this plaid shirt and his suspenders holding up his jeans, I had to say its me under this mask and we had a good laugh.  We had a sweet conversation the best we could, with masks on and Darrell's hearing:) He told me he was doing the best he could and that he was in alot of pain and those Damn Doctors could not figure it out:). Darrell will always hold a special place in my heart. I will miss making him my cherry cheesecake which he said he loved! Rest in Peace my sweet friend....
