Darrell was born in Washington Park, IL. He met the love of his life, Ginny (Virginia Macovey Harmon), at work at Christian Welfare. They spent 48 wonderful years together and created a beautiful family of four kids who blessed them with ten wonderful grandkids. He enjoyed spending his time outdoors, fishing, and being surrounded by his children and grandchildren. Darrell loved to celebrate his birthday yearly with his family, at Lost Valley Lake Resorts, where he would teach the kids how to fish, make smores around the fire and go snipe hunting. He spent his life surrounded by those who loved and adored him.
