Darrel attended BYU and later met his wife-to-be there. He married Beth Wardell December 12, 1961. Together they raised 7 children. They later divorced. Darrel was proud to have excelled in breeding outstanding registered Holstein Cows. He was known for his charm and wit. He had a thorough knowledge of the bible and followed the Anglo-Saxon Federation. Darrel had an amazing work ethic-working from before dawn until dark every day until his retirement. He was highly resourceful and a jack-of-all-trades. He was a paragon of tenacity, independence and strength of will. He attracted attention wherever he went with an unusual hat adorned with colorful and eclectic pins from around the world. Darrel enjoyed attending the LDS singles dances. He made many good friends there. Special thanks to his dear friend Julie Marini who was his best friend. Thanks also to Don and Anabel for taking Darrel with them on their many cross-country trips. The Clegg Pond, Powell Slough, was his favorite place. He spent many happy hours landscaping around it, built his retirement home there and enjoyed raising Koi fish.
