He was a graduate of Fairdale High School class of 1974, and was an active Railroader for 45 years since 1974, first with L & N Railroad and then with R.J. Corman Railroad. He was with J.R.C. Railroad in Knoxville for the last two years. He was of the Christian faith. He enjoyed boating and fishing, but mostly spending time with his wife, family, children, and grandchildren. He was quick witted and full of sarcasm. He was an immediate friend to whoever he met. He was very active in his children and grandchildren’s lives. He adored his pet “Baby Girl” who never left his side during his sickness. He loved country music and oldies. He was loved by his siblings as their baby brother. The Lord had given Darrell a vision of working with the homeless buying and delivering umbrellas to the Knoxville area. The ministry grew by adding blankets and snacks.
