Darrol owned his own business in Amarillo, serving the Ag Industry in the Southwest for over 40 years. He loved music and was a self-taught musician. He could play any instrument he picked up and loved a good jam session. Darrol never met a stranger and had a genuine interest in those he met. He had a love for classic cars and was a drag racing enthusiast. Darrol was an avid golfer who enjoyed watching the game as much as playing it. Nothing was more important to Darrol than his family and friends.
