Darrell was a fun-loving person. I worked with him for 14 years and went to school with him as well. I took care of all the bills for Aulick Leasing. Darrell and Bobbe were the accountants for them. I loved them both. It was a fun day when they showed up. Lots of work, but they always made it a good day or 2. Darrell was a smart and great man, he will be missed. I graduated in 73 at Scottsbluff High. Known him most of my life.
My husband Ken Furrey had the pleasure working with him toO. Darrell was on the board for Terrytown. Ken was in charge of maintenance. I lost my husband almost 2 years now. It's tough. Hardest thing you ever have to go thru, Prayers to the family. They always talked about their kids especially Davis being the baby. Thinking of all the good times helps pull you thru most days when it's hard.

I met Darrell through our AICPA networking group and held him in such high regard. I think he was such a rare find in the accounting world. Knowledgeable about everything and always ready to give of his time to help someone else in the profession. I reached out to him with several questions over the last few years and he was always quick to respond with some helpful information. It is far too soon for the world to lose Darrell but heaven gained him. I will most certainly miss him and his counsel. My sincerest condolences to your entire family.
