Darrell was an avid sports fan and was quite the athlete. He had a passion for baseball and coached the local youth in Chicago. He also loved to watch football, basketball and tennis. Besides sports, Darrell also loved listening to music and singing. He had a caring heart, lending hand, and always had quick witty responses.
