living in the Willamette valley including a few years in
Montana and Alaska during that time. At the age of 25, Darrell
went to truck driving school, spending the next 34 years

with fried chicken, as anyone that followed behind his truck
would know, by the chicken bones being tossed out the window.

the Elks and Eagles. He married Debi Taylor on September 2,
1989 in Reno, NV.
