Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
We met Darrell at our mutual "watering hole." He being from Maine, and we being from Maine, there were always stories of Maine to share. It was almost like "Cheers" in many ways, though I don't believe we ever knew his whole name -- we just enjoyed his company and his stories!

So very sorry , Terry, to hear of Darrell’s passing. He was such a good neighbor to Bob Rankin. They spent many happy hours discussing the world and life in general. Bob thought so much of him and often bragged to me about how smart Darrell was. He would always say, “he can make anything”. I know you will miss him but know that although I only got to know Darrell through Bob, I admired him so much. He was simply “a good man”. I think he will be missed by many of his neighbors who , like Bob, he helped innumerable times. God bless you and your family as you go forward withou him. Treasure your memories, they are what keeps us forever connected to those we love.

Darrell we'll miss seeing you over here on Bluegrass Pike, you always had some good stories or interesting projects to talk about. You never called me by my name, I was always Ellie to you and the name stuck, now when I hear it it brings back memories of you. May you rest in peace wherever the wind takes you

It is very difficult for me to understand that Darrell is gone form this world, He was always so strong and healthy, walked and biked and was the rock of his family or as he referred to himself "the last man standing". Darrell was a good business partner, super neighbor and a very close friend. We came from the same background in business and shared the same thoughts and agreed on many issues and also had some disagreements which almost always brought us to the best result. We spent many hours together working on many different projects and discussed just a few days ago how to make a hospital bed better to get in and out of. Darrell liked solving problems and working on new ideas and together we worked on several patents. Darrell always said we should leave this world a better place than we found it and I feel he most certainly followed through on his promise. Darrell had a heart as big as all outdoors, he would help anyone anytime and stop what he was doing at home to go help someone who needed him. Darrell you will be missed, may you find peace in your new home

Darrell was a true friend and we shared breakfast and the daily crossword puzzle in town, at 6am for over 10 years . A more creative mind you will not find. I look forward to our next visit and in the interim my condolences to those that meant the most to Him.
