Darrell was a loving and proud father to Kyle (Jaclyn) and Lisa (Vincent). He was a loving and proud grandfather of Julianne and Abigail.
Darrell was the dear son of Joyce and the late Harry Whittle. He was the loving brother to the late Marilyn (Jerry), Joni (Danny), twin sister Darlene (Dave) and Larry (Sherry) plus the uncle to many cherished nieces and nephews.
