Darrell enjoyed traveling and sitting in his garage contemplating on what would be his next project.  He enjoyed long road trips and gardening.  Darrell had a vision unlike any other and did not mind sharing and appointing you to your duties in his envisions.  He was a man of demeanor and courageousness.  Nothing could keep him down and let him tell it, he was “TOP CHEF” because he loved to bake.
