    I worked with Darryl at Jamestown in lockport. It was a shock to hear he passed away at such a young age. He started awhile after I did and then became my foreman in the shipping department. After Jamestown closed we kept in touch sporadically. I will always remember him. We had some good times together. My condolences to the family.

    My heart is broken that Darryl is gone away from us, I’m sorry I was not there to be with his family to hug and greet at the funeral. Even though I haven’t spoken with Darryl in a few years I’ll miss him forever, I love you Darryl always ♥️😢
