Pam - Sorry for your loss. Daryl was a real jewel of a man - always a ready smile! He especially shined when asked how to use a particular tool for repairs or when discussing repairs of mechanical parts and giving me insights on how to resolve a repair. I'll miss the garage chats with him.

Pam, Jason, and Darren,
Daryl was a great neighbor. Not only did we enjoy many short conversations that made the day better because of friendly human contact, but he was always helpful - often with a piece of advice from his vast store of knowledge. He'll be missed. My condolences to all of you.

Though it's been a few years back in time, I remember many a great day flying with or playing golf with Daryl - always enjoyable. We extend our sympathy to all of Daryl's family.

I've known Daryl all his life, he was a
beautiful baby with his black hair and dark eyes. He was always smart and funny.
Then he grew into a fine man. Still smart
and still funny! By now, I'm sure he and Harold have found each other; they are laughing and joking together. May you both
rest in peace and sweet reunion.

As Shakespeare said: "Good night, sweet prince, And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest."
