Darrell will be missed by so many. My thoughts and prayers for the entire family.
RIP my friend.
Darrell was such a great friend and wonderful boss. He will be missed. My prayers are with the entire family.
We were very sorry to hear of Darrell’s passing. Sometimes it seems that time passes so quickly. I (Steve) will never forget all the good times we shared growing up in K-town, from elementary school, junior high, high school, and college. We will continue to keep the Basinger family in our thoughts and prayers. We will always hold Darrell close in our hearts and cherish the memories that we shared with him. May God comfort your family and give you strength to sustain you.
