However, he was raised in Highlands, Texas. After graduating from Baytown Sterling, he attended Lee Jr. College before moving to Huntsville to attend Sam Houston State University. While at Sam Houston, he met his wife, Beverly. Their friendship soon turned to love and they were married on July the 13th 1973. The Lord blessed them with three children - Angela, Christy, and Robert.

Darrell worked for a number of companies throughout his life, always doing his very best to provide for his family. Some of those companies include Coca-Cola and Sysco.
