  1. First let me start by sending my deepest condolences and prayers to all his family and friends. All the memories I have of Darryl are happy memories. I helped him get on at FedEx Ground, we would share stories about our days and the dogs that would chase us, if you know Darryl, he had me laughing so hard. I will always remember his smile and his laugh, his laugh was so contagious. Darryl was a very good friend, he would give anyone his last if he had it. Darryl you will be truly missed, I love you my friend. R.I.P. and rejoice in heaven, till we meet again my dear friend.

  2. Condolences to family and friends. We lost a kind loving friend. I was lucky to know Darryl through his magical music. His light will never dim

  3. Gone Too Soon To My Brother Darryl, Gone Too soon, I will miss you here with me. We have gone through a lot on the play ground of life. Girls, Cars, Highschool band, Scouts, and many other memories. The secrets we shared and the Brotherly conversations. To include the things we overcame together. Darryl you are with Mom and Dad now. Tell them I love them. That you and they are always in my prayers. Thank you for the protection you provided for our sister in my professional absence. During my school and military life. You have always been there for Marsha and I, as the glue that kept and continues to keep our sibling bond together. We will truly miss you and love you always until we see you again. Your loving brother; Quinton .

  4. Such a kind soul throughout high school. Such a loving person. He will be missed. Sending healing to all affected.

  5. I can’t believe the 40 plus years of our family ties. Your reference to me as SIS, was always heart warming and made me feel a part of your family. I thank God you were able see my family grow with the birth of each child. Renalda, was your first niece. You were an integral part to our family and we looked forward to your conversations and views on vast subjects. You would talk to me as a Sister and be open to my thoughts, accepting the many Bible scriptures I would send for encouragement and motivation along this journey of life. I am deeply saddened to have lost a Brother in Law so soon. I will definately miss your laughter and sense of humor Darryl. God had other plans for you. Though I don’t quite understand, I know that absence from the body means you are present with the Lord. I am truly blessed to have called you my Brother. I know at this time of loss, we as children of Christ will meet again and that gives me peace. I was over joyed when you took the right hand of fellowship at Grace First Baptist church on February 24,2019. I will remember John 8:12 I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness. So it is not goodbye, but I will see you later if it’s God’s will. Your One and Only Sister in Law…..Anitra…or as you would say SIS.

  6. I remember meeting Darryl many years ago at the wedding of his brother Quinton, to my sister Anitra. Darryl’s demeanor has always been one of humility and kindness. A lover of music and good conversation, you can always find him sitting across from someone locked in and engaged in any type of conversation, regardless of the topic. He enjoyed playing his piano and creating his own songs and beats. He enjoyed the few times he heard my younger sister sing and play the piano at home gatherings as well. Through the Years, when we met as a family for Christmas, Thanksgiving or for summer get together’s, it was a pleasure seeing Darryl and catching up on what he was doing or working on. For those of you who had an opportunity to know him, I know your hearts are grieving his passing. Knowing that he was a beautiful Christian man, striving to live a life of Christ, that can be difficult in his line of work, Darryl, to the best of his ability, stayed true to the course. He will be missed greatly, but I have satisfaction in knowing that we will all, for those of us who believe, see him again! Rest in peace my dear friend and brother- God bless.

  7. First I would like to send my condolences to my cousins Quentin and Marsha and the Reed family. Darryl this still does not seem real. I’m going to miss our talks as you traveled from place to place. Your sense of humor, you could always make me laugh no matter how serious the conversation was, and your laugh, oh my goodness, I will never forget it. Just so many memories growing up in San Antonio as kids. I’m so glad we got to reconnect as adults and share some good memories. You will live forever in my heart. Your cousin Lynn

  8. Uncle Darryl….the last time we talked was on Thanksgiving (2021). We talked for an hour about everything. I remember your smile and laugh. Your laugh was contagious 😁 When I married your nephew, Quinson, I didn’t know you that well, but now, I can honestly say you became my uncle as well. Quinson, Isaac and I love you and we know that we will see you again in Heaven ❤
