Deepest Sympathy’s to his family and friends. Being away from LaFargeville for four decades, I still remember Darryl and Sue as friendly and great people. If my memory serves me, having one or two, or maybe three, of their children in classes at the high school, was a pleasure. Reading the story of Darryl's life, I am impressed with his service previously unknown to me. Darryl will be missed; I wish the best for his family. God Bless.
