Darryl was the first friend I made when I moved to Victoria and attended Crain Jr High in the 8th grade...coming to Texas from Niagara Falls, N.Y. was a "cultural shock" and people like Darry, Clarence Batts, Ronnie Sirmon, and other local "riffraff 'were kind enough to help me thru this bizarre transition, lol.  We were the "highdiving clowns" at Pleasure Island in the summer, first ones in line for the dances at TAC or The Westerner on Friday nights, attended each other's weddings, mutual military stints during the 60's...Darryl, you will be missed!
