I meant Darrel just a few years ago always enjoyed his company at the Wigs for Kids at my table and at the Blue Goose.I'll never forget when I got my Ford Edge I couldn't find the key to my car he came out to look at it, showed me where it was and how to get it out he laughed and I laughed because I had it my hands all the time. Darrel you will be truly missed 😔 RIP Darrel💕
I met Darrell over twenty-five years ago when we were buying a car for our son Brad. It was his first car (Ford Probe) and was a great car. I had many contacts with Darrel (and Anita) over the following years as I purchased and also helped him sell cars. We lost track of him over the last several years and were heart broken to hear of his passing. May he rest in peace and our condolences to the family

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Darrel. We will cherish all of the great memories made with Darrel and Sue especially the holiday get togethers, boat rides, and blue goose fun. Prayers for comfort for Sue and his family.
Darrel was truly a shining light for our entire family. We are so lucky and honored that we got to know him and he invited us so gracisouly into his life. Our heart pours out to Sue and her strength in these times because Darrel was truly one of the kindest, most sincere person we, the Betts family, got to meet.
We will never forget the memories we shared with him, and the late night conversations where our ribs would hurt from laughter. He never failed to spark joy in all of us.
We love you and miss you Darrel.
