Darryl accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Christ Temple under Elder Theodore B. He was educated at John Hope Middle School graduated and attended Tilden High School. Darryl held jobs that dealt with carpentry and painting. To know Darryl was to love him. As a child he was easy-going not complicated and easily satisfied. He was a person who loved to joke and make you laugh. He was a very generous and kind hearted person. He liked to help others, if you needed someone to help you move or to help clean up, he was your guy. He liked to fry chicken and barbecue (should have had his own chicken place). Children loved him, he always had money or candy for them. He loved to dance and step. Although he was a big guy he could dance. Dell also was a very clean person and liked to look nice. His sayings were, “Who you wit?” and “It’s the truth I tell ya!” People generally liked him even though he had small conversations, however he was an excellent listener and non-judgmental, he accepted people as they were. What people didn’t know was he could sing, he liked the blues and R&B music. He would just bust out a song out of nowhere. At times he would become very quiet and wouldn’t say much, he would just let you talk. He enjoyed his family and friends. After a lengthy illness, Darryl peacefully made his transition on Saturday, January 11, 2020 at 7:30 AM at Lakefront Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
