Darrel worked for over 30 years as a CNC Operator at Woods.  He was a hard worker, loving husband, father and grandfather.  He had a huge love for music, and grew up playing many different instruments.  He went on to start a band “The Country Ryders”, and played throughout Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.  Darrel was a diehard White Sox fan, and he loved the Bears, Bulls, and Blackhawks.  He had an uncanny memory for sports, music and movie trivia. He was quick witted, and loved to laugh. 

Darrel’s loving nature and charm will be missed by all those that knew him.
