    Deepest sympathy to the family. Darryl was a kind, loving, family man. I worked with him only a few years at St. Joseph Riverside Hospital in Warren and I nicknamed him "Darryl and my other brother Darryl" after the Bob Newhart show. God bless.

    Darryl was the one of the BEST coworkers to have around at Mercy Health! I enjoyed all my time spent with him. He was funny, helpful, very good at his job and was missed when he Retired. The best laugh of all times was each and every chance Darryl had, he would love to ask me "when are we getting our W2's?!?" SO FUNNY still today! My condolences to you all. What a Great Man!
