I knew him as Darnell, was Alway a Great Guy, Darnell and I were Freinds, from early on, as I remember when he started at T.G.Ritch,I was in Mrs. Brackens room. I know it was hard on him, being one of the first , to be introduced to the system. Always humble, never had a bad word to say to or about anyone, but never back down, from anyone. Darnell will be missed. RIP my friend. Jim Howell
