He received his formal education through Thomasville public school system. Darrell accepted Christ as his personal Savior at an early age. Darrell was a former employee of Southern Veneer for decades.
In his leisure, he enjoyed fishing, cooking, and cutting up with his crazy stories and jokes. Darrell loved his family and his family loved him. Darrell especially loved his mother whom he affectionately called Big Mama. Darrell and Big Mama talked 3 to 4 times a day every day. Pee Wee will be remembered as fun, loving, and compassionate man.
