Memories & Candles
It was with sadness that I read of Darrell's passing in the Ashtabula Star Beacon. Forty plus years ago Darrell and I lived at opposite ends of Highland Circle in Ashtabula. During the late spring and early summer when the days are long, but the air is still cool on the shores of Lake Erie I would pass by Darrel's house and admire a blossoming vine growing on a trellis beside his garage. The flowers resembled giant daisies; luxuriously large

I met Darrell only two years ago when I first became a hospice volunteer, but I got to know him well in that short time. He was a kind man who, despite his difficulty hearing, was always very inquisitive and active in our meetings. He had a sharp sense of humor and wit that he used to keep us all laughing. And, he was good to all of the other volunteers and the families he helped woth hospice. I know that all of us will remember him fondly. God bless you Darrell, I will miss you very much.

Darrell has blessed my life in so many ways by sharing his delightful clever wit and love of ancient literature. Unsure why he chose me to confide his thoughts and struggles, but I will always be blessed by those conversations. Always amazed at the vast amount of knowledge held within this one dear human's brain. What a philosopher. Darrell, as you rest in Heaven, know that your deep humility will inspire me for all my life. You were an amazing hospice volunteer and friend.

Darrell encouraged my love for nature. It was always fun to discuss our "birdwatching adventures."
He and Katy shared their home with family and friends and always made everyone feel special.
Reading and Writing were his AIM.
Art was his GAME.
Cooking was his FAME.
Gardening kept him SAIN.
I will miss you dear brother, but will hold your memory safe in my heart.
