He moved from Louisville to Hendersonville, Tennessee in 1972 where he raised his family and lived the remainder of his life.
Darryl enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his 4 grandchildren. He also enjoyed spending time at his cabin on Center Hill Lake. This was a special retreat for him to be with his children and grandchildren sharing his love for the lake, boating, and fishing. He had a passion for golf, spending several days per week on the course. During his golfing days he was blessed to be able to travel to various courses around the country.
After retirement, Darryl and Fran enjoyed each other’s company while travelling. They were able to travel throughout the US including Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada. They spent a few weeks each winter in Florida enjoying the sunshine and playing golf.
