  1. Alice Miller

    So special to my husband Ronnie … and Darryl was so giving and smart. Ron was proud of all Darryl accomplished academically in spite of him having a collapsed lung as an infant. Ron remembered the struggle Darryl had and how even as a youngster he overcame. Darryl will always hold a special place in my heart and memories. Prayers to Winnie, Sean, Rachel, Shannon, Kimberly and Hunter. Love and prayers…Alice

    Darryl and I both taught Chemistry at JCC so we had many conversations: both professional and personal. He had many unique and interesting perspectives, as well as a sly sense of humor. He was a fine man and will be missed. I add my condolences to his family.

    I have loved Darryl’s sense of humor for many years :-) We have worked together at WTCC and shared many funny stories about life, baseball, cheerleading, and sometimes, even chemistry :-) He was such a caring person and a fair instructor and he will be missed greatly.
