    My sincerest condolences to the family. Darrel will be fondly remembered by myself and many of the apprentices he instructed over the years at Local 22. As my 4th Year Instructor he prepared me not only to take my licensing exams, but he taught me many things about what it meant to be a good union brother.
    God rest his soul.

    Dear cousins,

    Did not know about Uncle Dartrel until I was fishing on the internet. For some reason I lost contact with all of you on FB. Some of the best days of my life was with my aunt Sara and Uncle Darrel.. Hecwas such a giving man . I always remember if I wanted something and my parents said no ,, he would always come to my defense. Uncle Darrel was truly a WW2 hero that never flont it. He taught Marcus how to fire a weapon. I could talk forever of Uncle Darrel and Aunt Sara. If you guys want email me or call me at 973-610- 2667. My deep condolences.
