I remember Daryl's sense of humor . He was sure to provide a laugh or two whenever he was court officer for the Warden Service on Wednesdays. Daryl was a professional with top notch investigative skills, that he passed on to his children, as I watched them enter the L.E. Field. You are missed by your brothers in uniform and family members. I'm sure the good Lord is making good use of your time in ever after life. Rest Easy sir.
