Darrell would not want a big fuss, a service, or even an obituary. If an obituary was deemed absolutely necessary, he certainly would not have wanted it to be too wordy, too formal, or overdone. He had a stoic appearance and dry sense of humor, but was actually pretty hilarious with his quick wit and classic one liners. Darrell love his family and treasured his friends, never putting himself first. He loved to travel, especially to his favorite state of Alaska.
